Stony Brook, NY - May 3, 2018 - Legendary Punk Artist, D.O.A.’s Joe Keithley, will be Tom Needham’s exclusive guest this week on Thursday at 6 P.M. on ‘The Sounds of Film.’ D.O.A., who are credited as the inventor of hardcore punk music, are promoting their new album, ‘Fight Back.’ Also joining Tom on the show, is Steve Olson, the hilarious star of ‘Fishbowl California.’
 
Punk legend, Joe Keithley, is embarking on D.O.A.’s 40th Anniversary Tour.  Canada’s D.O.A. is largely credited for being one of the creators of the hardcore punk genre.  Over the years, they have released 17 studio albums and have played over 4,000 shows on five continents. The group is often cited as a major influence for Green Day, Nirvana and the Henry Rollins Band. D.O.A. is known for their rebellious attitude and revolutionary political messages.  Their music has been featured in “Grand Theft Auto V,” “Punk’s Not Dead,” and “American Hardcore.” Their new album, ‘Fight Back,’ continues the tradition with songs like “Time To Fight Back,” “I Just Got Back From The USA,” and “You Can’t Stop Me.”
 
Joe Keithley has been called a cultural politician who has tried to change the planet from outside the system. He was one of the ardent supporters of the Occupy Movement and has supported “grass roots” democracy throughout his career. In this spirit, he recently announced that he is running for Mayor of his home town of Barnaby under the Green Party banner.
