Song of the Week: Agent Orange - Bloodstains and No Such Thing

No Such Thing
Take three teens from Southern California who love Dick Dale. Add in some love for The Jam. Throw in some X and mix it with skate culture and you get the debut single and mini-LP from Orange County California hardcore pioneers, Agent Orange. Their debut min-LP from 1981 (and their debut single from 1980) is so perfect I couldn't pick what song to feature. I couldn't even pick two! So I had someone else pick at random.

The result is Bloodstains from 1980 and No Such Thing from 1981. 

The band was Mike Palm on vocals and guitar, James Levesque on bass and Scott Miller on drums. 
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!


  1. Indeed. Not the best guitar made, but it looks cool. I saw them in 1985 but I don't recall what he was playing at that time.
