POISON IDEA - Young Lords 5-5-82 Metroplex PDX (No Idols, NI005.5)
As the second installment in the Pig Note series concocted between TKO Records and No Idols, Young Lords captures Poison Idea in their infancy, delivering a set at short-lived PDX punk venue The Metroplex in the spring of 1982. Despite being recorded during the band’s infancy, their trademarks of drug-blurred velocity and determined aggro are evident across the twenty tracks as they provide an aural peak into how these young lords became the Kings of Punk. THIS VERSION IS LIMITED TO 50 COPIES!!!
