Agent Orange
The Original Southern California Punk/Surf Power Trio,
Agent Orange, is one of only a handful of bands who have been
continually active since the earliest days of the West Coast Punk
Scene.
A small circle of musical rebels who came together to form a
movement, they took their place front and center to experience
and participate in the explosion of now legendary underground
music that was created during the golden era of American Punk
Rock.
Being the first to combine the melodic California surf guitar
sound with the frantic energy of punk, Agent Orange invented
the formula that would come to define the Orange County punk
sound. Highly influential to many of the bands who have
followed in their path, Agent Orange have always stayed one
step ahead.
Their strong connection to the Action Sports world has resulted
in their music providing the soundtrack to numerous major
motion pictures, video games, surf and skate films, television,
and live sports events.
The last of the true independents, Agent Orange have managed
to stay true to their roots, while always moving forward.
Powered by a loyal following built up through years of explosive
live performances all over the world, Agent Orange continue to
deliver their Fullblown-Supercharged-Punk-Surf Sound on an
international basis, with a never ending schedule of tours in the
United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, and
Japan.
C’mon down front and expose yourself to Agent Orange.
The Atom Age
The Atom Age
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s Punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized sound.
Coming together in 2009 in Oakland, CA The Atom Age immediately hit the road. Touring heavily enabled the band to develop their powerful live show and unique style. After making some noise in the Bay Area’s scene Asian Man Records offered to release the band's second full length in 2012. During a break from touring early in 2014, the members felt it was time to radically refine and hone their sound in preparation for their third full length. A year of writing and recording commenced with the inclusion of a sixth member on 60’s Combo Organ.
The new full length “Hot Shame” blends the Rock ‘N’ Roll swagger of Link Wray with the angular punk of Fugazi and Hot Snakes. A haunting tenor saxophone and transistor organ combo provide an added layer of tone ranging from The Stooges' Funhouse at their darkest, to The Famous Flames at their most energetic. Co Producer Blag Dahlia from legendary garage punkers The Dwarves lent his greasy ears and formidable Rock ‘N’ Roll knowledge to the band while they tracked the record themselves at their studio; District Recording.
