Agent Orange + The Atom Age

Agent Orange is an American punk band formed in Orange County, California in 1979. The band is one of the first to mix punk rock with surf music. They first gained attention with their song Bloodstains which they released on their own 7 E.P. An early demo of the song was presented to Pasadena radio station KROQ-FMs D.J. Rodney Bingenheimer, which soon became one of his shows biggest hits.

Besides having Mike Palm and Scott Miller as original members, Steve Soto was the power trios first bass player, the one who played on the first Bloodstains. The Living in Darkness Version of this song later appeared on Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4. Soto later left the band to form The Adolescents. With new member James Levesque on bass, the group found their way to the famous Living In Darkness sessions at Brian Elliot recording studio (Elliot is best known for having composed Madonnas hit Papa Dont Preach). The result of these sessions was their first long player, Living In Darkness (originally released by Posh Boy Records in November 1981). In 1988, Brent Liles replaced James Levesque on bass and later that year, Agent Orange recorded Living In Total Darkness, which was a re-recording of the original Living in Darkness album with a few new songs mixed in. This album did not go national and very few copies exist. In 1989, Derek OBrien replaced Scott Miller on drums and in 1990, Agent Orange recorded Real Live Sound. This is the only Agent Orange recording to feature the Palm/Liles/OBrien lineup. Sam Bolle replaced Brent Liles in January 1992, and remained with the band until May 2003, when he left to join Surf Guitar Legend Dick Dales band.

Agent Orange has had an influence on the skate punk[;citation needed]; or skate-core scene even though band members stated on Living in Darkness that We dont like skating at all. This may have occurred because Mike Palm evidently did skate as mentioned in an interview with TxPunk.net. Palm has also stated that he didnt talk much in early interviews and would sometimes disagree with what the band made seem like a unanimous opinion.
