DOA "War On 45" LP (Sudden Death) Import


30th anniversary reissue of DOA’s War on 45, making the epic release available on vinyl for the first time in over 15 years. Produced by Thom Wilson (The Offspring, Iggy Pop) and originally released on Faulty Products and Alternative Tentacles, this eight-song 12-inch plays at 45 RPM (which confused a lot of people back in 1982 when they spun it at 33 RPM) and it was the band’s followup to their landmark Hardcore 81 album. Alongside core DOA members Joey “Shithead” Keighley and Dave Gregg, the recording features the rhythm section of Ken “Dimwit” Montgomery (Pointed Sticks) on skins and vocals, Brian “Wimpy” Roy Goble (The Subhumans). War on 45 was hailed for its collection of anti-war songs right at the height of President Ronald Reagan’s Cold War rhetoric and nuclear arms buildup. This powerful piece of work has great musical range, from the driving sounds of “Liar for Hire,” “I’m Right, You’re Wrong” and “America the Beautiful” to the dub reggae strains of “War in the East.” There is also a blistering version of The Dils’ classic “Class War,” but the topper may be the band’s version of “War,” a stirring rendition of the Motown standard. Factory Sealed.
