A lot of the music I post on this blog directly pull influence from the mighty Poison Idea. The band released the 'Pick Your King' EP back in 1983 and it still stands as one of the best hardcore punk 7"s to ever exist. Up until a trip to Double Decker Records in Allentown, PA last weekend, I only had a Record Store Day Press of this essential EP. After I had my haul of things and was about to check out I noticed there was a 7" box up on the counter that contained the rare/higher ticket items. I actually thought to myself, "it would be awesome if there was a 'Pick Your King' in here." Looks like I lucked out. This is the 4th press on American Leather Records.
