Canadian punk staple D.O.A. have announced an upcoming DVD titled Smash the State. Included will be raw footage shot at four shows in the San Francisco/Bay Area and the Canada Day Anarchist Picnic in Vancouver.

Featuring the band's original lineup of Joe Shithead Keithley, Chuck Biscuits, Randy Rampage and Dave Gregg, the DVD includes 21 tracks, interviews, newscasts, footage of the day anarcho punks took over Vancouver's Stanley Park on July 1st, 1978 and guest appearances by Keith Morris (Circle Jerks), Dirk Dirksen (Mabuhay Gardens/San Francisco punk guru), JB Shayne (legendary Vancouver DJ) and Zippy Pinhead (Los Popularos, The Dils).

Joe Shithead commented on the compilation:

I really wanted people to see the original version of D.O.A. performing. You know, the completely raw band that went out and took on the world. So I gathered together some of the best footage I could find and came up with Smash the State. Most of the footage is taken from shows in San Francisco and the East Bay. This makes a lot of sense, as San Francisco became D.O.A.'s home away from home in the late seventies and into the eighties.

The DVD will be released September 25th, 2007 via Joe Shithead's Sudden Death Records. There will be a release show Thursday, September 27th at The Plaza Club in Vancouver, where the band will perform along with special guests The Jolts.
