THE BRIGADES - Costa Del Dole LP

Let's head over to Paris today to enjoy the wonderful melodic punk from THE BRIGADES. They released several albums and EPs throughout the 80's but this is the one I'm most familiar with. There's definitely some UK Oi influences and some touches of reggae in some of the riffing and chord progressions, but the end result is much more upbeat and sing-songy than your typical gruff French Oi. This LP actually reminds me a bit of countrymen AL KAPOTT in their delivery, and will also probably appeal to folks who worship a lot of the anarcho stuff from the 80's. Great batch of tunes!
