MAR035 THE BRIEFS – Hit after Hit LP (release date: National Kickball Day, 4/17/16)

Newly Remastered pressing of The Briefs classic debut LP. Originally slated as a Record Store Day release for April 16th, 2016. However, in honor of National Kickball Day (April 17th, 2016), The Briefs made a last minute decision to back up the record release one day and challenged Bay Area powerhouse NOFX to a kickball match at their home field, the former site of Candlestick Park in Hunters Point. Using free copies of the new record as bait to boost attendance didnt work out so well as the attendance was a flop, however the kickball game was one for the ages…

Both teams rolled out their aces to the mound and the pitching duel was set: Steve e. Nix vs Fat Mike

Coming into the game as big underdogs, the ever-clever Briefs gained the upper hand early by hiring special guest referees:
Former Fat Wreck Chords artist Ben Weasel and former Fat Wreck chords employee Big Floyd

The Briefs took an early 3-0 lead thanks to their scrappy line up of consisting of:
Guitarist/Vocalist: Daniel J. Travanti, Drummer: Chris Brief, and the 1-2 Bass tandem of: Lance Romance and Kicks

NOFX struck right back with 3 runs of their own and held the Briefs scoreless for the next 7 innings behind the stellar defense of El Hefe

With the game tied in the bottom of the 9th inning, NOFX brought in their surprise closer: former guitarist and El Hefe predecessor, Steve Kidwiller. But thanks to a trick play dreamed up by the Briefs genius coaching staff of the Three Johnnys (Manager Johnny Falcon and Coaches Johnny Bonnel and Johnny Witmer) coupled with a questionable call by Ref Weasel at the plate, the game ended with a controversial yet dramatic 4-3 walk off Briefs victory!

Adding injury to insult, incensed by the suspect call at the plate, Fat Mike chased Mr. Weasel into the parking lot where he slipped on the remnants of a half eaten chili dog and broke both legs, thus putting an end to his summer hopes of a Punk Rock Bowling championship – get well mike!
