Agent OrangeTix to go on sale TODAY for the All Ages show at Chameleons featuring California punk rock legends AGENT ORANGE – Wednesday, August 15, 2012 7:30pm with THE QUEERS .. FLAT TIRES and THE PROZACS live!

Surf-Punk pioneers Agent Orange formed in Orange County, CA in 1979, and recorded throughout the 80’s and into the 90’s. Their influences range from Dick Dale to Blue Oyster Cult with the aggression of the Ramones. Their style is fuzzy ANGst-ridden punk and they are one of the first bands to come out with surf-punk blend.

Their album, Living In Darkness (1981) was recently reissued. Reviewers called it “much more instrumentally sophisticated than your average punk rock record.” and noted that “Guitarist/vocalist/lead dude Mike Palm really smokes out some nifty, sticky BOC-style metal hooks..”  Check out some tracks here:

The reissue leads off with the  single “Bloodstains,” easily the best thing the band has ever done, and one of the greatest California punk singles of all time. It’s a near-perfect fusion of surf and hardcore punk, with Palm screaming, “Fast cars! Rich girls! Fine wine! I lost my sense I lost control I lost my mind!” – The Offspring were greatly influenced by this song for their big hit, Come Out and Play or “Keep ‘Em Separated”. An early demo of the song Bloodstains was presented to Pasadena radio station KROQ-FM’s D.J. Rodney Bingenheimer, which soon became one of his show’s biggest hits. The Living in Darkness Version of this song later appeared on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4.

Agent Orange  current lineup is Mike Palm, Perry Giordano and Dave Klein. For the Aug 15th show they will be joined by The Queers,  a punk band formed in 1982 by Portsmouth, New Hampshire native Joe King. The band currently consists of Joe Queer (Guitar/Vocals), Dangerous Dave (Bass), and Lurch Nobody (Drums). Also the Prozacs  from Springfield, MA and The Flat Tires  from Hickory, NC.

This is a good one kids!!!
