DEATHPILE 1995-2004 R.I.P.

Updated 7.5.21 – Don Poe has posted three early (sloppy) Deathpile videos on YouTube. I believe they were all shot by Jeff Pero.

My only solo Deathpile set (very short). I was opening for Death Squad on his first US tour: https://youtu.be/c3gFNb0MYB0

When Thomas Garrison (Control) was in the band and we somehow got pro lights. We were opening for Xorcist, believe it or not: https://youtu.be/yQy5zpjnigA

When “Back on the Prowl” era Deathpile (Brian D’Agosta and Don Poe) opened for Death Squad on a second US tour. Also you can probably spot RRRon up front.: https://youtu.be/BbGihVFON1g

I will close by saying this (since I get asked regularly): Yes, I have appeared live a couple of times doing Deathpile songs (once at No Fun Fest and a few times as a “surprise” during other performances). No, I will not be doing that again or resurrecting Deathpile for new recordings or live performances. I appreciate your enthusiasm for this project but my head is in a different place now and I’d prefer to leave Deathpile in the grave.

Thank you. -Jonathan Canady
