POISON IDEA: Darby Crash Rides Again: LP

Another reissue of this band’s early material, this time with three less songs, but remixed and remastered all nice ‘n’ purty. Includes tracks from the Boner’s Kitchen and Darby Crash Rides Again demos on the first side, and most of a live radio performance on KBOO from 1983 on the flip. Those partial to the band’s Pick Your King era will be tickled pink by this. Short, sharp thrash, no fuss, no bullshit, all ragin’ all the time. Every reason why this band is so adored is in full evidence here. –Jimmy Alvarado (TKO)
