Poison Idea

Nihilistic Portland, OR, hardcore outfit Poison Idea was formed in 1980 by frontman Jerry A., guitarist Tom Roberts, bassist Chris Tense, and drummer Dean Johnson. The group debuted three years later with the EP Pick Your King, cramming 13 songs into a 16-minute time frame; the Record Collectors Are Pretentious A**holes EP followed in 1985, fine-tuning the band's blistering sound and fatalistic worldview. Thanks to their notoriously insatiable diet of drugs, alcohol, and junk food, the members of Poison Idea all ballooned past the 300-pound mark by the time of the 1986 full-length Kings of Punk, with Roberts -- who now tipped the scales at an impressive 450 pounds -- rechristening himself Pig Champion in honor of the occasion. Tense and Johnson were then dismissed from the lineup, although the former returned in time for 1987's War All the Time, recorded with second guitarist Eric "Vegetable" Olsen and drummer Steve "Thee Slayer Hippy" Hanford; Tense was then replaced by bassist Mondo for 1988's Filthkick EP. Both the Darby Crash Rides Again and Ian MacKaye EPs followed a year later, another period of roster tumult which made way for the addition of guitarist Kid Cocksman (soon replaced by Aldine Striknine) and bassist Myrtle Tickner. Poison Idea returned in 1990 with Feel the Darkness, with a series of live releases (the Official Bootleg EP, the Live in Vienna EP, and the Dutch Courage LP) preceding 1992's Blank Blackout. A collaboration with Jeff Dahl appeared a year later, concurrent with the covers album Pajama Party; however, in the wake of Pig Champion's subsequent departure Poison Idea disbanded, releasing their June 6, 1993, farewell gig at Portland's La Luna as Pig's Last Stand. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

bonnit's into skiffle. . . don't even know why he listens to so much punk since he hates all of it
You are awesome bobonnit. I love it when people like you only have the ability to comment on things they see as "sucking". I just wonder why you're afraid to let people know what you actually like. I'm sure it's not because you have sh! t taste.

The name Pig Champion is from Tom's band the Imperialist Pigs.
I don't understand you if you don't love PI. There just aren't many bands that rock the f**k out like this.
PI is still a band fyi.
"Fatalistic"
'Someone who believes everthing is predestined or predetermine d '
Whatever Indie kid artfag is writing for Pandora needs to stop.
Hire someone who understands the music.
one of the best bands ive ever heard
please put their earlier albums up. i swear ill pay for a subscription if you do. these three are good but subpar to just about every other release. latest will and testament was pretty damn good though
sbkosiba
The writers for this site are absolutely terrible. Nobody who knows the meaning of the word fatalistic would use this term to describe PI's music. Number one rule of writing: don't use words that you don't understand.
awesome stuff !!!! Pig Champion rules man !!!

Blank Blackout Vacant... the best album ever.
"war all the time" and "Pick your king" are some of their best albums.
Feel the Darkness is their best. I agree. What's behind the Badge?
mmiloff90
Feel the Darkness is their best album by far. Pandora needs to get it.
THE LOUDEST DRUNKS IN PUNK!!!!!!!! !
Um, Jason Ankeny, PI is still a band.
Aldine Strichnine. From SLC's Maimed for Life. Great Guitarist.
Still the Kings of Punk!
