BRIEFS, THE: Off the Charts: LP

So it looks like the major label route was not the way for these guys to go and they are back on Dirtnap where they belong. The Briefs probably wouldn’t have gone over too well with all the nu-punk jocks and the nu-garage assholes. This is the music that people get beat up for listening to and that isn’t something that sells too many records. Anyway, this pretty much picks up where the last one left off: fun, poppy, goofy punk rock that tips the hat to the Kinks just as much as it does to the Buzzcocks. You should buy this, and while you’re at it, buy the first Kinks album, too.
