Out of print for half a decade, the 7" EP's recorded by Oakland's TALK IS POISON have become Cult legend among Hardcore collectors and fans, pegged as a " modern Classic" by the FLEX punk discography, cited as an influence on many bands that followed them since their brief existence in the late 1990's. A combination of a straight ahead hardcore attack ( William harris from Memphis's now legendary COPOUT), dark edged, Bass driven East Bay Hardcore ( Brian Stern, Member of DEAD AND GONE and currently in LOOK BACK AND LAUGH and CALIFORNIA LOVE), Pounding, Rock solid drumming ( Jim Nastique of BLACK FORK, THE PATTERN, SUICIDE PARTY) and Heavy Low end Dark pummeling ( Grant Kasten, of ANIMAL FARM, LIVING UNDER LIES, OJOROJO, COLDBRINGER ) TALK IS POISON released 17 tracks on two 7" EP's ( "Straight to Hell", "Control" ) and a Split 7" with Memphis's DEATHREAT all of which are collected here in a powerful re-mastered version from the original tapes. Innovative Lyrically as well as musically, delivered with the stead fast earnestness of the best of Hardcore bands.
Found some more in an old Unshipped distro order. Not Sure of the color. These may be all on ultra Clear vinyl, though some may be on blue / coke bottle or black.
