White Rock/Burnaby (Dave Chesney) – They were the first, and arguably, the best.
D.O.A. has a new video out: It Was D.O.A., is an uproarious look at life in D.O.A., that Joey Keithley wrote for the now classic album Treason. It features drummer Paddy Duddy on vocals, mixed with Joey’s sharp rebukes. Many thanks to Reid Blakley animation and editing for putting this together.
It’s a funny way to start off what is hopefully a much better year for everyone.
The song is from D.O.A.’s raucous and wild album Treason, which received rave reviews, it’s available on LP and CD.Sudden Death Records is helping to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of D.O.A.’s first album Something Better Change with a special release that is newly remastered and contains both the original mini photo booklet and the punk rock lyric sheet.
This album has been described by critics as one of two greatest albums ever to come out of Canadian punk and one of the top 10 punk albums of all time.
Long time fans know that Joseph Edward “Joey Shithead” Keithley is a Canadian punk musician who is best known as the lead guitarist and vocalist of the punk band D.O.A. He was elected a city councillor in Burnaby, in the 2018 municipal elections as a member of the Burnaby Green Party (Wikipedia).
