That's right. I'm back and I'm pissed.
Man O Man.That is almost, but not quite, 6.3 times better than Jughead's 'Hockey, Hockey, Hockey'.How come we haven't heard it yet on Vinyl Tap me wonders?.
I've seen DOA live a bunch of times. I remember sneaking into the Commodore Ballroom underage to see them at a benefit show - pro-education and anti-Bill Vanderzalm. Lead singer joe Keithly's auto-biography 'I Shithead' is a nifty tour of DOAs musical career - which is basically the history of West Coast Canadian punk.
Seen 'em little (Smilin' Buddha), seen 'em big (opening for the Clash, who they essentially slam-trashed with hilarity and mackinaws just like with the suits in the hockey video). Keithly is, indeed a treasure, and a treasure trove, and if I remember correctly his brother is big in the local labour movement.
