The Briefs

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 humor, and undeniable hooks; they soon took their spirited sound nationwide, touring the country with such bands as T.S.O.L., the Queers, Flogging Molly, and the Adicts.

Originally comprised of Daniel J. Travanti (guitar/vocals), Lance Romance (bass/vocals), Steve E. Nix (guitar/vocals), and Chris Brief (drums/vocals), the band initially released a single on Dirtnap Records before issuing their debut album, Hit After Hit, in 2000. Writing songs as a collaborative process amongst multiple members, they returned with 2002's Off the Charts. Around this time, the Briefs signed to Interscope Records, but the deal eventually fell through before the band ever released a recorded note. Undeterred, the Briefs bounced back in 2004 with a new deal on BYO Records and another full-length effort, Sex Objects. BYO also reissued the band's first two Dirtnap releases that September. Touring constantly, the group followed up with Steal Yer Heart in October 2005. The record marked the recorded debut of the group's new bassist, Stevie Kicks (formerly of the Vancouver punk outfit New Town Animals), who joined after Romance amicably parted ways to concentrate on other projects. Romance remained involved in the band, however, directing the video for Steal Yer Heart's "Getting Hit on at the Bank." A singles collection, Singles Only, also appeared in 2005 on Revel Yell, and the band spent the early part of 2006 touring across Europe. They then headed back to the States for spring dates with the HorrorPops, followed by a hiatus during which Nix formed the Cute Lepers. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

Just found out about them. Love it!
I've ALWAYS loved this band! Their energy, short to the point songs, hooky riffs and choruses! NEW SHOES is one of my ALL TIME favorite songs! Love you boys out of Seattle! Always love to see you! XOXOXO
eh. thats about what they inspire. saw them once(went for lower class brats on sxsw)and they aren't bad on stage but they weren't great
Just like their name - it will be brief listening to the briefs - very lame and nothing new just a bunch of blah blah blah blah ... .
I like the briefs. It's what you listen to before a court date, or after you get fired, usually because of the court date.
No one did.
Bunch of soppy vaginas if ya ask me.
Chuck norris himself couldn't have said it better.
screw nirvana and pearl jam.

briefs/cute lepers are the best thing to come out of this rainy hell hole.
Then punch yourself. Or if you want, I can do it...

That picture of them makes me want to punch myself in the face for even looking at it.
if you like the briefs some of their members started the Cute Leppers. its more pop centered but its still got that "cheeky humor" haha i love that phrase. oh, ind i really dig the briefs.
