D.O.A. - Live 1984 (Plus my new interview !)

Hey, please go to The Big Takeover to read my interview with D.O.A.'s Joey "Shithead" Keithley.

This excellent bootleg is from the Endless Tour of '84-'85 on which I first saw D.O.A. (that whole story is HERE) and the ripping set is that of a band at the peak of their powers.

Live at the Olympic, 1984 link is in the comments.

  2. Nice one - Have you read Joeys book -I Shithead - its one of the better ones

  3. Jeffen- great interview you did. I have fond memories of DOA... dating back to the very early 80's in NY! And, "I Shithead" is a great read.

  4. WoW!
    I've got their first EP "Disco Sucks" (it still does) and saw the band in Seattle somewhere about 1980!

  5. Great start to my week! D.O.A. is probably my favorite band, well at least in a three-way tie for first anyway. Thanks for this one. I first heard them around this time but never got a chance to see them until the early 90s. Sadly, the drawing power of the Lone Star state could not entice them to come sooner.

  6. Interesting interview, Jeffen.

    Sad to hear that 'Murder' and 'True (North) Strong and Free' won't be seeing a reissue/remaster anytime soon. I can't recall who put out TNSF, but Murder was on Restless, wasn't it? I kick myself for not picking it up on CD at a show many years ago.

    But yay, Visual History! Yay, more Bev Davies photos! I hope it also sheds some light on why their album covers and t-shirt art has increasingly sucked since '84...

  7. Crimewave
    Oh yeah, half my interview questions came from that book!

    Glad you dug the interview, people who saw DOA early on rarely forget it.

    1980was a very good year fro D.O.A. (but then a lot of years were).

    Y'know the live shows from '90 still kicked righteous ass, in fact DOA's live show is the most consistent aspect of the band - I have never seen a bad DOA show and I've seen them more than any (touring) band.

    TNSF was on Rock Hotel (which also put out the Nils album). They suck.
    Yeah I ditched my old copies of TSNF and Murder and now regret it like hell.

    I do think the design grew more hit and mis but there is some great stuff post-84.

    Glad you liked it (were you the Doug in the comments?)
