Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Agent Orange - Greatest and Latest
|Mike Palm pioneered the surf punk sound in the early eighties, and held sway over skate punk for a decade and more. Agent Orange is still magnificent. This new release rerecords many AO standards, and shreds in the process. The band here is Mike Palm - guitar, Sam Bolle - bass, and Steve Latanation - drums. With 12 classic songs and one fine instro, this CD is always worth a spin.|

Skate & Surf Punk (Instrumental)
The day Brazil 2001 played in the pit, Mike Palm and Agent Orange stopped by to be interviewed. Being the surf fanatic that I am, I asked Bernard Yin if they could play a couple of tunes on their equipment if AO were willing. He said yes, and this is it. Mike usually doesn't use effects pedals, so this is a unique venture for him. Mike pioneered the surf punk sound in the early eighties, and held sway over the skate punks for a decade. His band is still magnificent, and have a new CD due out soon. This track really shreds, as they say. The drummer is Dusty Watson also of Slacktone and Jon & the Nightriders! Mike has promised to come do a whole set for us one day soon.
