First released in September 1982 on their own Xntrix Records label, 'Where's The Pleasure' was described by Johnny Waller in Sounds as "The last great punk record".

The record came out of a period of change for Poison Girls. A new house, a new bass player, a completely new set, and, with it, a determination to challenge the expectations of their audience. What resulted is an outstanding collection of songs.

Vi Subversa’s lyrics seamlessly make the personal political, and the political relevant to everyday life. The music bristles with inventiveness. What we hear is a band at the top of their game, exploring different styles and enjoying themselves in the process. It is Poison Girls flexing their musical muscles, rediscovering their roots, and connecting with the true spirit of punk, which is of course, unbridled, messy and adventurous creativity.

‘Where’s The Pleasure’ is a truly wonderful achievement by a truly unique band.
