Despite this album can to remind a performance, live concert or similar event, it's just the opposite, another studio album issued in 2004 in their own label "Sudden Death" and recorded in their city Vancouver, Canada. Then and perhaps even nowadays, the album was quite unotticied. Perhaps is too long (almost fourty minutes), perhaps too much songs (fifhteen plus five covers in some issues)... several unknown reasons became this album quite forgotten and underrated. But the true is the recording is still quite good and continue with their typical rock and punk, this time also with few original ska influences.

"The black spot"
Year:  1995
Country:  Canada
City:  Vancouver
Label:  Universal
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  16
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk  Rock






















Another good album to add to D.O.A. discography list, is this "Black spot" from 1995, which then had quite popularity and even "Virgin Records" (Universal Music) was interested in the release. With the pass of the years it got more and more acceptance. The fact is the album has been re-issued several times by different labels such as: "Sudden Death", "Essential Noise" and "Piggy Mot" with different cover, back and artwork. The true is despite all D.O.A albums keep certain similarity, this one is specially excellent and brilliant next to (for example) their "murder" from 1990. Punk and rock'n'roll mixed with intelligent and ironic lyrics about social issues, politics, etc.

D.O.A. is a rock band from Vancouver, Canada, started in 1977 as a political punk rock band which evolued with the pass of years to fast hardcore and also well produced hard rock in some albums and even they made heavy metal in their third album "Let's wreck the party" in 1985. After short hiatus of inactivity D.O.A. come back in 1990 with this album entitled "Murder", one of their most reputated work, issued several times, last one in 2017 on "Sudden Death Records" (own of D.O.A. singer Joey Keighley (AKA Joey Shithead)) and "Alternative Tentacles (own of Jello Biafra, Dead Kennedys). This "Murder" usually is well accepted both by Punk and Metal scenes, and this newest 2017 re-issued was also remastered with few touches on artwork too. Brilliant job

No no.... you are not wrong, you read right, this is a D.O.A heavy metal, hard rock or A.O.R. (adult oriented rock) album. And the true is then, in 1985, the recording had quite succes in the Metal scene... but quite disappointment in the hardcore punk scene. No liars here, this is nor punk neither hardcore, but heavy metal with the usual D.O.A lyrics (politics, social issues, parodies, etc). Some people dislike at all, other has not a clear opinion, but more you listen to it, more you like it. They are still good musicians of course and the quality sound is more than good, it just depends of taste or music tolerance...

Joey Keithley, aka Joey Shithead, founded legendary punk pioneers D.O.A. in 1978. Punk kings who spread counterculture around the world, they’ve been cited as influences by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Green Day, Rancid and The Offspring; have toured with The Clash, The Ramones, The Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Nirvana, PiL, Minor Threat and others; and are the subject of two tribute albums. They are the band that introduced the term “hardcore” into punk lexicon and may have turned Nirvana’s lead singer Kurt Cobain onto a career in music. But punk is more than a style of music: it’s a political act, and D.O.A. have always had a social conscience, having performed in support of Greenpeace, women’s rape/crisis centres, prisoner’s rights, and antinuke and antiglobalization organizations. Twenty-five years later D.O.A. can claim sales of hundreds of thousands of copies of their 11 albums and tours in 30 different countries, and they are still going strong. I, Shithead is Joey’s personal, no-bullshit recollections of a life in punk, starting with the burgeoning punk movement and traversing a generation disillusioned with the status quo, who believed they could change the world: stories of riots, drinking, travelling, playing and conquering all manner of obstacles through sheer determination.
