Blight was an American hardcore punk supergroup from Lansing, Michigan, which formed in early 1982 and existed for four months, releasing one posthumous EP.

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 only stayed together for four months, and finally broke up later in 1982.[2]

The band's only release, a self-titled EP recorded in the basement studio of Corey Rusk, was released posthumously by Touch and Go Records in 1983.[3]

On March 21, 2006, Touch and Go released a Blight compilation, Detroit : The Dream Is Dead - The Collected Works of a Midwest Hardcore Noise Band 1982[1][4]
