POISON IDEA - Kings Of Punk LP



Among the impressive discography by Portland, OR Hardcore Punk forerunners POISON IDEA, their 1986 debut LP Kings Of Punk is considered one of the most important entries

Originally released on the Pusmort label owned and operated by legendary visual artist Brian “Pushead” Schroeder (Misfits, Metallica), Kings Of Punk introduced POISON IDEA to a wide audience than their previously the self-released and distributed releases on Fatal Erection, the record label co-run by their guitarist Tom “Pig Champion” Roberts.

Taking full advantage of the situation, POISON IDEA made sure their first full-length release would make an impact on the American Hardcore Punk scene. From the grisly, full-color cover image of the band’s name carved into the chest of vocalist Jerry A. Lang to the blistering music contained within, Kings Of Punk was convincing enough to earn POISON IDEA the attention that helped spread their legend and kicked off the band's most prolific period: the late 80s - early 90s.

Out-of-print since TKO’s ephemera-packed “Portland Edition” version from the summer of 2022, Kings Of Punk now returns as the third installment in TKO’s "POISON IDEA REMASTERS" series. This new edition finds all eleven tracks shined up while still retaining the feral bite of the original, proving almost forty years since its release, Kings Of Punk will forever be evidence enough for POISON IDEA's to claim their self-appointed throne.
