Review

Review Text The debut album by Manhattan-based garage rockers Jonny Chan & the New Dynasty 6 is an entertaining blend of British Invasion and garage rock influences. Considerably less noisy and Nuggets-obsessed than most bands on the Dionysus Records roster, Chan and his band (a trio, naturally) take most of their stylistic cues from Beatles, Dave Clark Five, Searchers, Merseybeats, Kinks and Hollies singles. The guitars jangle instead of snarl, and there are occasional attempts at harmonies. The songs are largely about as derivative as the early tracks by their obvious heroes, but originality is not what this style of music is about. (However, the one truly original idea, a cover of the garage rock standard "Little Black Egg" sung in Mandarin, is absolutely inspired.) Anyone who liked the Sire-era Flamin' Groovies albums will find much to enjoy here; Now You Want Action is derivative and insubstantial, but it's undeniably a load of unselfconscious fun. ~ Stewart Mason
