DOA at Deep Wave Festival, Summer of 1980

Many thanks to photographer / guitarist Dean Kelly for emailing over some killa pix of DOA at the Deep Wave Festival in Bingeman Park, Kitchener. Aaaaaahhhhh, the memories of that day...

Dave Gregg, Randy Rampage, Chuck Biscuits and Joey Shithead - DOA 1980

Fans of Toronto's Modern Rock radio station The Edge (CFNY-FM) may want to note the banner above (and fully displayed in the randy Rampage shot 2 pics below). CFNY was a powerful force for new music and their slogan The Spirit of Radio became the inspiration for the Rush song of the same name. I remember driving out to the CFNY yellow farmhouse headquarters in Brampton, bring Joe Keithley for an interview with Tim Keele (Jeanie Bekker also interviewed Joe that summer, for Much Music and CHUM-FM).

If you remember CFNY and all the great and inspiring bands of those days, check out the EDGE / CFNY history website SpiritOfRadio.ca!

A month and a half after the Teenage Head riot at Ontario Place on June 2, 1980, and two weeks before we (Joe College and The Rulers) opened for Teenage Head and DOA at Deep Wave, we played Nathan Philips Square (Toronto City Hall) on June 19, 1980, with DOA, The Viletones and the Forgotten Rebels. Here's a scene from the fountain pool that day (photo by Valerie, sent in by Steve):

Here's the button for the event, and if I remember correctly, it was created by my friend Peter Leuthard, promoter of the Deep Wave Festival (I believe we carried forth the motif from the original Vancouver RAR protest show):

Anybody else have any photos from RAR or Deep Wave they can share? If so, please email to yuyajoe at yahoo dot ca.

Peace 2 All,

Yuya Joe College
