Nolan Treolo music CDs Following the 2000 release of Brazilliant comes the second EP from Paris, Texas, Action Fans Help Us! This five-song juggernaut finds the Wisconsin five-piece at its best, and fans will be pleased with the band's solid, non-emo sound. It's raw rock & roll, punchy in spots, but heavy-hitting all the way. The title track bounces with the twin guitar work of Nick Zinkgraf and Nolan Treolo, while frontman Scott Sherpe's angst-y frenetic vocals are equally powerful. "Your Death" isn't as grim as it sounds, nor is "One Hot Coma," but the initial setup of Action Fans Help Us! clues listeners in to Paris, Texas' slick work in progress. Listeners merely got a taste of it on Brazilliant, and unfortunately this mini-album isn't long enough to tie fans over until the next full-length. In the meantime, Action Fans Help Us! will have to do. ~ MacKenzie Wilson

The problem with the previous effort, though, was not the guitar playing, it was in the songwriting. The band seemed caught halfway between a conventional indie rock mode and more experimental post-rock noodling, and singer Scott ...
