THE BRIGGS – Come All You Madmen
COME ALL YOU MADMEN
(Side One Dummy)
Uplifting socially aware folk punk that kicks.
The Briggs have recorded an album that is ferocious in places, melancholy in others and generally uplifting elsewhere. The varied music shows that an acoustic guitar strummed with finger shredding venom found on several tracks can be just as effective as the songs on which they tear into full-on punk assaults. This is folk tinged punk that contains the best elements of both genres – thought provoking lyrics, energy, anger and passion all delivered in a manner that is sure to get the skate parks and parking lots that host this year’s Warped Tour resonating with a thousand joyous voices singing in unison.
