D.O.A. is a band that since its first recording has been known for its raw sound, thundering rhythms and outspoken politics. Led by singer-guitarist Joe 'Shithead' Keithey, the band helped forge a punk rock scene in Vancouver in the late-1970s whose impact reverberated across the world, inspiring legions of followers and future punk legends.
Over the decades, Burnaby-native Keithey hasn't slowed down, continuing to record and tour with the band, start a record label (Sudden Death Records), run for political office and publish an autobiography. In our latest issue, Megaphone sat down with Keithey to talk about his new D.O.A. book, Talk - Action = 0, which collects the ephemera—from posters to photos to lyrics to album covers—to his career in punk rock.
