Demo

by Poison Planet

  • Record/Vinyl

    Originally recorded in 2007, this demo was released on vinyl by Offside Records out of France in 2011. The art from the original demo was recreated and updated to correspond with the change in format.

    Offside Records went all out and printed the covers like mini-LPS with printing on the spine. The lyric and essay sheet is 7" x 14" and is double sided to pack in all of the info about the songs.

    The Demo songs include:
    Intro/The Victim
    Mind Racing
    Boycott Everything
    Menace
    Nothing Gets Done
    Bible Stories/Outro

    The line-up on this record was:
    9Volt - vocals
    Death Snake - guitar
    Little Soldier - drums
    Swamp Thing - bass

    The $8.00 price reflects the heavier/nicer packaging and the cost to import them from France.

about

Poison Planet Chicago, Illinois

What separates punk from other genres of music is its visceral menacing sounds make it the perfect soundtrack for anger & protest. The direct result of this combination of elements is that it became a vehicle for socio-political ideas.

PxP firmly embrace that vehicle in the hope of advocating the idea of personal growth & change; personal is political.

Straight Edge.
Veganism.
Human Rights.

Track Name: Intro/The Victim
The Victim
(Music: Deathsnake/Lyrics: 9 Volt)
We are all victims of the choices that we make (x4)

“I guess that makes it a victimless crime
because I only fucked over myself”
Well its time for you to own up
because what you did you did to yourself

So now its time - time to own up
Time to own up for what you’ve done
Take responsibility and turn it around
The damage you’ve done to yourself

We are all victims of the choices that we fucking make!
Track Name: Mind Racing
Think it through a million times
Caught in loops it churns and grinds
Rapid images flash right by
Trapped inside my fucking mind
Think it through a million times
Caught in loops it churns and grinds
Rapid images flash right by
Trapped inside my fucking mind

Can't slow it down, it won't fucking stop
Can't slow it down, it won't fucking stop
My mind's racing
My mind's racing
My mind's racing
My mind's racing

Can't slow it down, it won't fucking stop
No conclusions, just slow rot
My mind races as my body decays
Can't sleep, can't eat, can't fucking relate

Caught in loops it churns and
Track Name: Bible Stories
Bible Stories
Deities and saviors
Myths and fables
Prophesies and prophets
Lies upon lies

Contrived to control
Fiction as truth
Broken trust
Lies upon lies

Stories told
Morality imposed
Fiction unearthed
Hatred exposed (x2)

Bring them in
Sheep to the flock
Feed them all
Lies upon lies

Deities and saviors
Myths and fables
Prophesies and prophets
Lies upon lies (x2)
Lies upon lies upon lies

For many religion provides solace, inspiration, belonging, understanding, and forgiveness in what can be an unforgiving world. Despite the benefits it bestows on some - even upon many that I know and love, I cannot sit idle as tenants of hatred are passed off as morality. I cannot keep my mouth shut as you spread fiction and centuries of embellishment and tout it as truth. Shepard the faithful, shout your commandments from the pulpit, or spread the wisdom of your prophet - we will always stand firm to undermine you. We will challenge your truths, whisper doubts, and promote the ever evolving answers that scientific analysis provide. We will base our morals on reason, not on ancient tomes written by men bent on controlling the populace and bending them to their own whims. We are not sheep. We will not be led. Fuck your god and your book of truths. Until your religion embraces all races, genders, and sexual orientations as equals, until you can look me in the face and tell me that you understand the origins of these tales and that you can read between the lines and only extol the interwoven virtues of love and acceptance - we will stand before you and call out your belief system for the two faced controlling doctrine of intolerance that it is.
