Album Review

They may or may not steal yer heart, but on their fourth album, the Briefs do continue to sound as if they might have stolen your uncle's record collection. They make no bones about their influences: within any randomly selected two-minute snippet you'll hear the Buzzcocks, the Undertones, the Adverts, maybe even some Stiff Little Fingers. The fake British accents (these guys are from Seattle) can be taken as a matter of course, and so can the period-appropriate 28-minute album length (though it would be easier to accept if it came with a period-appropriate album price: if memory serves, an Undertones LP went for about $7.29 new). But all caveats and qualifications notwithstanding, there's no denying the genuine trashy pleasures to be found on this album, in particular the Ramones-go-Oi! thrasher "My Girl (Wants to Be a Zombie)," the slightly icky cougar-hunting anthem "Forty and Above," and the spastically brilliant "Criminal Youth." Very nice.

The Briefs are one of the most underated modern bands

Yes they have very obvious influences, but their music is great and they have great humor in their music. More bands need to take themselves less seriously. This album is fanastic.

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...
