The Riffs- Such A Bore 7”. Ex members of Defiance, the Nice Boys and Soda Pop Kids, the Riffs are a snarling, in-your-face outfit that recalls the classic punk bands of the late '70s and early '80s. The Portland based band is a passionate, unapologetic throwback to classic punk bands like the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Dead Boys, and Sham 69. A blistering twin guitar attack that equally channels Johnny Thunders and Steve Jones with very crafty song writing. A nostalgic mish mash that the Riffs really made work.
