Poison Idea - Darby Crash Rides Again 7"

It was the late 80's when PI put out this 7" of rough and raw demos from their very early days. Though not a review of this record, I present a review of the band, from some website I stumbled upon:

Compare, for a moment, Poison Idea to many of the well-groomed and immaculately-tattooed punks strutting their safe ‘n’ sanitized stuff today. Here was a band that was fat, ugly, ill-kempt and proudly degenerate. You’d never find them in a gym or their posters plastered on the bedroom walls of teenage girls, and their music represented an adequate enough summation of the bleak, brutal reality they inhabited: raw, belligerent and yet, for all its many sins, comfortable in its own sallow, pock-marked skin.

Aren't You Having Fun?
