D.O.A. – world war 3
In 1979, DOA teamed up with Ron Obvious and Bob Rock at a midnight-to-6:00-A.M. studio session at Vancouvers Little Mountain Sound to record and mix, on a shoestring budget, what is arguably one of the top ten punk rock singles of all time. Penned by guitarist / singer Joey Shithead and drummer Chuck Biscuits, and helped along by bassist Randy Rampage, World War 3 really hit the mark for the times, starkly criticizing the USSoviet nuclear arms race. Sadly, 37 years later things in the world are not any better. Music can still speak the truth. The B-side Whatcha Gonna Do? features Biscuitss all-star drumming and Shitheads songwriting in a Jamaican- inspired departure for the young DOA. Sudden Death is proud to rerelease this gem by Canadas punk pioneers on vinyl for the first time in 37 years in a strictly limited edition * Sudden Death.
