Interview With Ted Axe 2019




“A swaggering leather-clad figure, eyes, hidden under a veil of black hair and a
half-cocked top hat dances to the tune of a dirty Les Paul. Venting poison with a hail of
feedback, Axe shrieks with a razor-tongued sneer that ignites the crowd.”__ Seattle Post


Ted Axe is part of Canadian Punk Rock history as the notorious and legendary frontman
for The Action-“Canada’s First) Punk Band”.


Opening for The Stranglers and chosen to tour with The Ramones,The Action garnered
more press in one year than most self-respecting punk bands get in a lifetime and Ted

in true punk tradition self-destructed.
