The Orange County, California hardcore scene (hell, the hardcore scene PERIOD) isn't known for spawning very many non-white frontmen but Against The Wall's Mike Madrid is a welcome and refreshing exception to that unfortunate rule. Madrid has returned to the scene with his new band Orphan Jams, a noisy punk/hardcore outfit that combines the best elements of the '80s and the '90s O.C. hardcore scenes to bring a fresh sound to the current scene. Crank it.

Against the Wall was a good band but Mike Madrid was always an asshole back in the day. I wonder if he's changed.
