The fall of 2000 was a time of innocence. Clinton was President. The Twin Towers were still standing. And Bob Seger still had his dignity. Then the Briefs burst onto the scene like a neutron bomb with the audaciously titled "Hit After Hit" and the punk rock landscape was changed forever.

Their '77-style pop punk is loud, raucous and fierce, yet cohesive and hooky and hilarious. The Briefs are like a team of Chinese acrobats falling down the stairs on purpose. And when I say "pop" I mean popular in the broadest sense possible. The fifteen year-old mall hottie is a fan, but so is the 40 year-old stalwart with the pristine Undertones collection. Sure The Briefs wear their influences on their sleeve - Adverts, Buzzcocks, Weirdos to name just a few -- but they cop to them like junkies caught tying off in the alley with a skinny tie. They can't help it. It's in their blood. Listen you'll understand. The groove is familiar but they've got a sound that's all their own and uniquely unique. Infectious? Once they get in your ear, there's no getting them out. The Briefs are mother fucking nerve agents for a diseased life.

With their skinny ties, plastic sunglasses, matching bleach-blond dye jobs and bad haircuts, The Briefs take the stage like commandos of the New Wave, retro zombies from the Disco Inferno. Take a good look because once they start to play it's all a blur. This is their secret. It's not what they sound like or what they look like. It's their energy. They'll come to your town and electrify the place. It doesn't matter if they go on first, last or in between. It doesn't matter if it's an all- ages gig, an outdoor music fest, or a shitty little dive bar deep in the heart of Wrongville. The Briefs are one of the hardest working bands in America. They'll play any time, anywhere. They'll pile out of the van and stun the crowd like rioters at a Republican convention.

Prepare yourself as we present Denver talents Slim the Living Cyborg a sideshow performing time traveler from 4020 and try not to get caught in the heat of Ms. Zia Pixie.

THE HILLBILLY MOON EXPLOSION

Who knew that rock'n'roll could still be so exhilarating ... and musically diverse? A half-English 4-piece hidden away in the unlikely habitat of Switzerland, Hillbilly Moon Explosion honed their craft without distraction for many years. Searching for the right sound they've previously recorded in San Diego, Camden and Tooting allowing more time to get it spot on.

The band are quite an online and vinyl phenomenon, boosted by the My Love For Evermore single, a duet with Spark Phillips. Tattoos of My Love For Evermore have become a thing, with dozens of fans comparing photos on the band's Facebook page. At least 30 cover-versions add to the eleven million of views of the song's viral video on Youtube and the 7" vinyl sold out a remarkable seven pressings.

Much revered in France, they were recently hired to help resurrect the career of the film star and singer Arielle Dombasle. She recorded with the band an album of Hillbilly Moon cover versions, out now as 'French Kiss' on Universal.

Last in the UK in 2013, they straddle genres with ease, playing divergent gigs such as the Jazz Café, the Punk Rebellion Festival, Boomtown Festival, and as guests of the Swiss national team at the London Olympics.
