"The Briggs play brash American cockney punk anthems that come complete with union-made sing-alongs and ear-splitting riffs. They are the kind of songs that would make Joe Strummer shed a tear of pride and Shane McGowan raise a glass to salute brothers Joey and Jason LaRocca's rollicking sense of spunk and bravado. In their own inimitably slick and sneering ways, the Los Angeles four-piece demonstrates the spirit of punk is alive and well and thriving on the West Coast. With their third full-length, Back to higher Ground, now on vinyl for the first time via Drastic Plastic Records, the Briggs bring angularity to their gut-punching assault. Back to higher Ground is the album that brings the Briggs' jittery punk plod to a more considered place, which underscores the impact of such powerful music. To hear these songs glowing from the deep spiral scratch of honest-to-goodness vinyl --- the true means by which punk should be experienced (other than from the stage) --- only makes each song hit that much harder". Limited edition of 1000 copies on collectible blue vinyl.
