Abstract:

"Joey Keithley, AKA Joey Shithead, founded legendary punk pioneers D.O.A. in 1978 - punk kings who spread punk counterculture around the world and have been cited as influences by Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Rancid, The Offspring, and others." "But punk is more than a style of music: it's a state of mind. D.O.A. has always had a social conscience, and has performed in support of Greenpeace, rape relief, prisoner rights, and anti-nuke and anti-globalization organizations." "Twenty-five years later D.O.A. has played with bands including The Clash, The Ramones, The Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Nirvana, PiL, Minor Threat, and many others. They are also the subject of two tribute albums." "I, Shithead is Joey's recollections of a life in punk, starting with a bunch of kinds in Vancouver transfixed with the burgeoning punk movement, and traversing a generation disillusioned with the status quo - stories of riots, travelling, playing, and conquering all manner of obstacles through sheer determination. And through it all, Joey reveals that the D.O.A. slogan, TALK - ACTION = 0, is, for him, more than a soundbyte." "With an introduction by Jack Rabid, publisher of seminal New York music magazine The Big Takeover."--BOOK JACKET.
