D.O.A. started out in a whirlwind of controversy and upheaval. In 1978 three guys fresh out of high school from the backwaters of Canada’s suburbs heard about the punk rock revolution. In February 1978 the band formed and started playing shows, but they soon realized that there were no record deals coming any time soon. Joe Keithley aka Joey Shithead, who was working towards being a civil rights lawyer before he found punk rock, concluded that the band had to take the Do It Yourself approach long before D.I.Y. became popular. So he formed a fledging record label called Sudden Death Records and the label released D.O.A.’s first snarling slab of vinyl, the Disco Sucks 7” EP.
