Sudden Death Records is pleased to present the re-release of
Let’s Wreck the Party by Vancouver, Canada’s legendary DOA.
At their peak, after years of constantly touring the world, the
band’s 1985 line-up was one of their most blistering: Joey
“Shithead” Keithley on vocals and guitar, Ken “Dimwit”
Montgomery (of Pointed Sticks) on skins and vocals, Brian
“Wimpy” Roy Goble (of The Subhumans on vocals and bass,
and Dave Gregg on guitar and vocals.
This classic album covers all the subject matter one expects
from these punk pioneers. There are political anthems like
“General Strike,” “Our World,” “Race Riot,” “The Warrior Ain’t
No More” and “Trial by Media.” DOA-style humor is served
well with “Singin’ in the Rain,” “Dance o’ Death” and the blistering
“Let’s Wreck the Party.” The full-tilt “Murder in Hollywood”
gives Goble’s take on a grisly murder that took place one
floor below the band’s digs in Hollywood.
DOA recorded Let’s Wreck the Party with producer extraordinaire
Brian “Too Loud” Macleod (RIP). The end result was
no-holds-barred, high-voltage punk rock. This album influenced
three generations of fans and artists like Rancid, Green
Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ian MacKaye, Henry Rollins, Jello
Biafra and Nirvana.
