The title was rather ironic seeing as they were record collectors themselves. This is easily the bands finest moment. The music is blazing hardcore punk with a bit of rock mixed in there and it just knocks you on your ass from the first notes of the first song. H-Elenore - Various - Keats Rides A Harley (Vinyl cover LP) was not a gimmick, singer Jerry A.
They also added an additional guitarist named Vegetable. At this point they started going H-Elenore - Various - Keats Rides A Harley (Vinyl a more metal direction and put out the War All the Time album on the long defunct Alchemy Records, which was the label started by David Portnoy of Dehumanizers.
Poison Idea put out a few more singles and an album or two all while various members kept dropping out until Jerry A was the sole original member left. This particular album was reissued on both Taang!
As always if you have additional information or were a member of Poison Idea, by all means get in touch. Wow, good idea for a blog man. I too would take the Wipers over PI. I heard that Jerry A still plays under the Poison Idea banner occassionally, but not with anyone who appeared on a P. However your blog notes a mistake. Poison Idea never had a member by the name of Tim Paul. He and my brother used to hang out back in Eugene, I remember them listening to Kiss records for hours.
Compilations H-Elenore - Various - Keats Rides A Harley (Vinyl to get trashed in the press because they generally present such a wide array of music that no single reviewer likes more than a fraction of what is presented.
I like these compilations precisely for that reason. This category will only feature compilations with exclusive material. And so we begin with Keats Rides A Harley. Keats Rides A Harley is a classic. Some of them, like the Gun Club and the Meat Puppets from Phoenix left behind a major imprint and influenced dozens of bands who came after them. Others left ghostly traces of their sounds elsewhere and had recording careers of varying lengths such as the Leaving Trains, LP), the wonderful Flowers a Urinals offshootToxic Shock, and Human Hands.
Still others, like S Squad, Tunneltones, and the Earwigs, all but disappeared into myth and folklore. The legendary compilation was reissued onto disc inwith the original LP tracks, plus one track from each contributing artist recorded at the original sessions but previously unreleased.
The 14 extra tracks — more music than the original LP material — make it, of course, essential.
