Poison Idea - {1994} The Early Years {Bitzcore}

Poison Idea was an American hardcore punk band formed in Portland, Oregon in 1980. As their career progressed the band began to incorporate overt influences from Motörhead. The band originally dissolved in 1993, but has been playing intermittently since 1998. On January 31, 2006 guitarist Pig Champion died at his home in Portland, of undetermined causes, although he had been suffering from the flu and an untreated kidney infection. PI had recorded a new record and it was ready for release when he died. Pig wanted the record to be called Latest Will and Testament, a name that the rest of the band liked. After Tom’s death Jerry commented that Pig probably knew something that the rest of them didn't. The album was released in May 2006 on Farewell Records.
October 6, 2008 Portland police arrested Steve "Thee Slayer Hippy" Hanford, 39, in connection with a string of pharmacy robberies in late summer.
In 2007, after taking a year off to mourn the huge loss of Tom and, feeling deep down that Pig would want the band to continue, Poison Idea again reformed to play shows in support of a split 7" single with Kill Your Idols (for TKO Records). The lineup for this incarnation was Jerry A., Chris Cuthbert (drums), Jimmy Taylor (guitar), Matt Brainard (guitar) and Rob Hume (bass). This line-up has been a solid unit ever since playing stints down the West coast, Austin, Texas and even a show in Stockholm, Sweden in October of 2009 for a party sponsored by their friends at Swahili Bob's Tattoo shop and members of the Stockholm band Wolfbrigade.The band will be playing "Chaos in Tejas" in 2010.
POISON IDEA has been cited as an influence by bands and musicians such as Zeke, Turbonegro, Pantera, Napalm Death, Machine Head, Emperor’s Bård Faust, and thousands of other bands.--Wiki--
