An excellent look back at the beginnings of punk rock in Canada, D.O.A. Smash The State features concerts clips and other documentary footage from the early years 1978-1981. Concerts include the legendary San Francisco venue Mabuhay Gardens, San Francisco club On Broadway, an Anarchist Anti-Canada Day concert in Stanley Park and more.
Snotty punk-is-just-beginning British accents abound from Keithley and crew on classic songs like Rich Bitch, Let’s Fuck, Disco Sucks and many more.
You’ve got to hand it to the D.O.A. guys - they toughed out from those rough and tumble beginnings and are still sticking it to the system some 30 years later.
