By far this is the toughest project we’ve ever attempted. Our disorganization was really exposed on this baby and it nearly drove the final stake right through MARs purple heart. But, after a year or two of promises, much inter-label fighting, a few high-interest loans and many tacos eaten – Its finally here! The ultimate Briefs collection! This killer definitive singles boxset is packed to the gils with the best tunes from the best band of the last decade and a half. 18 songs packed onto 5 x 7″s, 6 more songs on the demo tape and 9 more bonus songs with the download for a total of 33 Non-LP (for the most part) Briefs tracks. No more arguing over which Briefs LP is the best, cause we all know the 7″s are better than the LPs anyways! So THIS is the best Briefs release hands down, problem solved…Along with the killer tunes, also included in this package is a bunch of other cool Briefs stuff to help you get back into your early 2000′s pogo-mode. So drop your cheeseburger, bleach your hair and shave your beards cause the Briefs are ready to wake you up from your last 7 years of miserable existence…and as usual, better hurry up you f-ers, cause they’re gonna go fast (or we’ll be outta business fast)!
