Album Review

The second album by L.A.'s the Briggs is basically more of the same as their debut: old-school political punk of the Stiff Little Fingers/Angelic Upstarts stripe. Singing guitarists Joey LaRocca and Jason LaRocca recall Chip Kinman and Tony Kinman in their early days in the Dils, in the way that the brothers' very similar voices blend together and split apart, Jason's harmonies coming in to support Joey's leads at just the right time on songs like the opening "Third World War" and the call-and-response shout-along "Keep Us Alive."
