Reseña de álbum

On Off the Charts, the Briefs offer a plucky update of late-'70s British punk types like the Undertones and the Rezillos. It's all pointy elbows and spiky two-chord guitar lines here, and it's all undercut with a jokey, almost self-parodying air that almost makes it OK to sound this much like so many bands and still be pretty great.

[Better Youth Organization reissued the album in 2004, altering the track list a little bit toward the end of the album.]

Looking like a new wave band sharply dressed in skinny ties, bleached hair, and plastic sunglasses, retro-punks the Briefs blasted onto the Seattle music scene in the latter half of 1999. The charmingly snotty quartet took sonic cues from late-'70s British punk and early-'80s L.A. bands, wearing influences like Buzzcocks, the Adverts, the Adolescents, Generation X, and the Undertones on their collective sleeve. The Briefs quickly made a name for themselves locally with an energetic live show, cheeky...
