Record Collectors Are Pretentious Assholes is hardcore punk band Poison Idea’s second EP. It was released in 1985 through Fatal Erection Records.
The back cover of the album contained a picture of Elvis Presley with the words “The King” below it as a response to their previous release, the Pick Your King EP, which had a picture of Jesus on the front and Elvis on the back.
The artwork, coupled with the title, is a joke at the expense of guitarist Pig Champion, as it is a picture of his extensive record collection.
• The Original 1984 12″ EP, Remastered w/ Extra Tracks
• Bonus Material From “Drinking Is Great” & “Cleanse The Bacteria” Comps
“Despite all rumors and confusion, POISON IDEA rages with rapid-fire, foaming bites of outrageous energy. This is what you’ve been waiting for. This band deals out the goods with frenetic, hammering madness and rabid intensity thrash-style compositions.”
