A Portland hardcore band covering The Go-Gos? That’s exactly what you get with Poison Idea’s We Got The Beat / Taken By Surprise 7-inch – the 25th installment in the first volume of the Sub Pop Singles Club. Since their formation in 1980, Poison Idea was one of the longest fixtures in PNW hardcore and punk until they finally disbanded in 2017 (although the band did initally break-up in 1993, reuiniting for performances and occasional releases through the next two decades). RIP Pig Champion.
