Blight is an American hardcore punk supergroup from Lansing, Michigan. Their members came from other Lansing hardcore groups.

History[edit]

Blight was formed by The Meatmen's Tesco Vee, The Fix's Steve Miller and Mike Achtenberg, and Pat Clark. They came together in Lansing, Michigan in 1982 after the Fix broke up. They opened for some notable acts including The Dead Kennedys.[1] The band finally broke up later in 1982 after only staying together for four months.[2] In 1983, the band's only release, a self-titled EP, was distributed by Touch and Go Records. In 2006, Touch and Go Records released a compilation of Blight's songs called "Detroit: The Dream Is Dead (The Collected Works of a Midwest Hardcore Noise Band 1982)".[1]
