The Brigands were an American garage/sixties punk/beat band from the 1960s… and that's about all we know. This band is a mystery.
Their by far most famous song, (Would I Still Be) Her Big Man, is on the fourth disc of the 1998 box-set Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968.
Liner notes from the Nuggets booklet (written by Mike Stax):
"Other than a probable East Coast, maybe New York, origin nothing is known of The Brigands. But the song's writers and producers were Artie and Kris Resnick (also responsible for The Third Rail's Run, Run, Run). A studio group? My instincts tell me no - this just sounds too real. But what do I know?"
