Shellac At Action Park is Shellac's debut LP following on from the "The Rude Gesture (a pictorial history)", "Uranus" and "The Bird Is The Most Popular Finger" 7" singles.

'At Action Park' was recorded electrically, and features no overdubs, no guest appearances and no tiny cymbals that go "pish". The vinyl format is an audiophile pressing, manufactured to classical standards. Mastering is all analog, direct-to-metal (DMM), and the records are virgin, dye-blackened vinyl, weighing 177 grams (the nice thick ones that don't bend).The LP and CD packaging were printed by Fireproof Press.

10/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 3rd December 2014

Paradoxically, the most wild and raucous rock record, restrained and so incredibly neat due to Steve Albini’ recording and engineering. Not a sound out of place, no bleeding. If this album was fight, however, there would blood and teeth all over the place. “My Black Ass” is the perfect opener; razor-sharp guitar slicing through the absolute silence. “The Admiral” is great with its bass-led groove. Some of the pent-up rage is released on “Song of the Minerals” as Albini spits “It’s alright if it makes ya feel better” over and over. “A Minute” is a vicious punk assault and one of the albums faster numbers, breaking away from the steady, metronomic pace of the rest. “The Idea of North” channels Tortoise with its post-rock glide. “Dog and Pony Show” tethers the album back down before “Boche’s Dick” lets it off the leash again. “At Action Park” is brilliant from start to finish.
