AGENT ORANGE(WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT)

This time around I'm going to post some 12" E.P.'s and singles, this may not be as dark or as punk sounding as their earlier releases but, this is still a great record. I love the in your face drums . Agent Orange 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 KROQ, Pasadena radio station's D.J. Rodney Bingenheimer, which soon became one of his show's biggest hits.
Besides having Mike Palm and Scott Miller as original members, Steve Soto was the power trio’s first bass player, the one who played on the first "Bloodstains". 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 most known for having composed Madonna’s hit "Papa Don’t Preach"). The result of these sessions was their first long player, Living In Darkness (originally released by Posh Boy Records in November 1981), as well as a single and one or two bonus tracks that later surfaced on some E.P.s. 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 Dale's band, where he remains to this day.
