New Album from the Kings of Punk
I know that this is old news, but I figured I'd put it out there anyways. Poison Idea fucking rock. Everything from Pick Your King, to Kings of Punk, Feel The Darkness, and We Must Burn. Everything kicks ass. They take the anger and anguish of Discharge, mesh it with the reckless punk rock styles of the Germs, and spit it back out in a way that isn't successfully matched by ANYONE. The new LP is called Latest Will and Testament which is the title that Tom "Pig Champion" Roberts wanted. Fitting, because tragically Pig Champ's reckless lifestyle of drugs, booze and junk food caught up with him and he passed away in February at the relatively young age of 47.

Here's what the label that released the LP, Farewell Records, posted about the release: POISON IDEA are back again with a new record!!! Germany`s FAREWELL Records is proud to announce the release of the new record "Latest Will And Testament" by the "Kings of Punk" from Portland, Oregon. Pre-orders for the colored vinyl version of 300 copies are possible!

And a blurb taken from Interpunk:Back again with an amazing new record!! Poison Idea are a legendary hardcore punk band. They started in 1980, broke up in 1993, and re-formed in 1996. Recorded in 2005, this is the final Poison Idea release that will feature Pig Champion (Tom Roberts) on guitar. Pig Champion died in Janaury of 2006 shortly after the band finished this new LP/CD. Ten tracks of rip-snortin’ punk rock as only Poison Idea can deliver it!

Rest In Punk, Tom "Pig Chamion" Robert
