Out Since 16. April 2007 on “CAPTAIN Oi!”: A 27 track two on one coupling of the first two albums by CHANNEL 3 that now comes with five rare bonus tracks. With a 20 page booklet containing lyrics to all the songs, a full discography and in-depth liner notes by Alex “No More Heroes” Ogg! And the long overdue debut on Captain Oi! for Punk legends D.O.A. though this 26 track round up of every A and B side issued by the band in their first twenty one years was well worth the wait! This will save vinyl collectors an absolute fortune! Personally overseen by Joey Shithead with notes on every release and pictures of each one it’s easy to see why so many of today’s bands cite them as a major influence.
