D.O.A. from Vancouver suburb Burnaby, like Black Fag in LA, were almost too good for punk. They could play their instruments (mostly), they thought about solutions and they could write a tune.

Now D.O.A. have a new album out for the first time in decades. It is hard to understand why; punk is long dead and lead Joe Keithley, aka Joey Shithead, is a family guy who volunteers at his kids’ school, works on environmental campaigns and nods hello to you on the sidewalk.

But no matter how growed up you become, sometimes you still just got to – excuse the language – be a cunt.
