BRIARD - Miss World 1983

Briard were formed in 1976 and released a couple of 7''s in the late 70's & they were the first band who released a punk single in Finland and after the 4th Rockin' On The Beach 7'' on Love Records they soon after recording split up. In 1983 the original line-up made a brief return, as they recorded their debut album Miss World in Finnvox Studios. And the result are thirteen crashing Punk'n'Roll numbers with english lyrics and all tunes kicks hard ass. The singer I really like him because it reminds me a lot of whiskey drinking, hahaha.. After that, Briard's story was over for good. Then Pete Malmi went solo, Sidi Vainio played in Päät, Shadowplay and Seitsemäs Maailma (and later concentrating on academic studies), Andy McCoy and Nasty Suicide made an international career in Hanoi Rocks.

    2. No worries, I just appreciate all the cool rarities I've been able to pick up from you over the years and would like to give something back, so whenever, if you saw something on the list I sent that you want (or inquire if there's something else you want to to check my collection for) just let me know! :) Cheers, Mark
