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 Yawpers roar over the roofs of a world filled with the ruined and the forgotten, where big dreams and small towns are pitched to the collective curb, and lost men and con men roam the gutters and pulpits. American Man taps into the disparate, murky pools of the American musical lexicon; dark country to kinetic punk, acid blues to flared jeans boogie, low-brow backdrops pitted against high-minded literary references. It's an edgy, engrossing trip.
Shimmering against blacktop fever dreams and Elvis's ghostly sneer are the anarchic impulses of the MC5 and psychedelic muscle of Leslie West's Mountain and Blue Cheer. Raw and melodic, infectious and irreverent, American Man is an update on the Springsteen tramp's dream of getting out while you're young, this time played for the inhalants generation. It's the suicide rap played out in the desert, without velvet rims or everlasting kisses, the tramp as much a drifter as a romantic.
The two crossed paths when they were both living in Houston back in 1998. It was a random meeting at a bar with Jerome sending a shot of tequila over, but no music plans were hatched. It wasn't until each had moved to Denver from California -- Jerome from Northern California, David from Los Angeles, when they started playing music together. Bassist Alfred Mueller also relocated to Denver from Los Angeles and was a natural fit for the band, since he'd actually been in the illustrious Karate Pants with David.
The name is a nod to their adopted hometown and Jerome's first job as a butcher, though they decision to name the band DMC was actually left up to their social network; the band put up an online poll and let their friends choose it for them.
The new combo quickly got to work, firing out a dozen tracks in under a month and taking advantage of a large social network of musicians and people in the music business to help bring attention to this project. The friendships included legendary studio wizard Paul Hamann (Pere Ubu, Wild Cherry, James Gang, fIREHOSE, the Black Keys), owner of Suma Recording Studio in Ohio. Hammann engineered the trio's debut, which was recorded and mixed in whirlwind fashtion.
Entropy, the resulting debut album, is a raw batch of straightforward indie rockers that wouldn't have sounded out of place 25 years ago.
