The Briefs - (Looking Through) Gary Glitter's Eyes b/w Dead In The Suburbs
Happy New Year! Sorry I've been lazy about updating this thing lately. The holidays can be a real pain in the ass and this year was just so rushed & stressful I've barely had time for anything important, let alone ripping records and updating the blog. Thankfully though we're entering in to the home stretch and, as 2011 draws to a close, it's time for the last post of the year and what could be better for that than a blast of snotty old school sounding punk rock.
The Briefs have been making noise since forming in Seattle in the year 2000. Their sound has always stayed very true to the poppier side of the '77 punk style, sort of similar to: The Vibrators, The Buzzcocks or maybe even a less abrasive version Blanks 77. They dropped this chunk of wax in 2002 and I believe I picked it up at Singles Going Steady sometime shortly thereafter.
Enjoy! (in wav format w/ cover scans)
