For the first time, ever, TKO RECORDS & AMERICAN LEATHER are proud to present THEE definitive audio and visual document of POISON IDEA's historic 1990 North American tour - THE BEAST GOES EAST.
Teaming up with renowned author and Hardcore/Punk historian Tony Rettman, we were able to uncover a previously unheard soundboard recording of PI's set at City Gardens, Trenton, NJ from the May 06, 1990 stop on their tour. Sourced directly from the house engineer's cassette, THE BEAST GOES EAST captures a raw, blistering performance from the KINGS OF PUNK, just months before the release of their 1990 masterpiece FEEL THE DARKNESS.
THE BEAST GOES EAST is presented in a deluxe gatefold jacket, designed by John Yates in his signature "Punk Note" style, with liner notes from Rettman, (who was in the audience that night). Bound into the gatefold jacket is a 20-page booklet of previously unpublished tour photos. A color 11.5" x 22" poster is also included.
