Long touted as the ugliest band in hardcore, and it is a hard fact to deny, here's a reissue of the first proper LP by none other than Poison Idea, "Kings Of Punk". Originally pressed by Pusmort back in 1986, it's been reissued by a few labels a handful of times over the years, this is an edition from this year by Taang! on clear vinyl. Debatably their best stuff, it's certainly my favourite. For the era of punk that this record came about within the recording is outstanding and manages to translate their power as a band very well. It took me a while to really grasp how good thse guys were, and I just about kick myself for it. What a record. What a band.
