I hung out with indie rock, post punk band Born Ruffians in an undercover car garage one summer day while we were both at the Banff World Media Festival. We chatted as a mysterious wind-born fluff swirled around us, invading this small town in the Rockies.
Which band member does an impression of Donald Trump? How does music change for a band when they go from fan to working musician? Which band members still play in their family’s annual Christmas song circle? Could Born Ruffians make a record about being a cool suburban dad? Who in the band suffers from “demoitis”? You’ll have to listen!
Tracks played on the show…
1) Born Ruffians, Ruff (2015) “We Made It”
2) Born Ruffians, Ruff (2015) “Eat Shit (We Did It)”
3) Born Ruffians, Birthmarks (2013) “Needle”
4) Born Ruffians, Say It (2010) “What to Say”
5) Born Ruffians, Ruff (2015) “Shade To Shade” (partial)
6) Born Ruffians, Ruff (2015) “Don’t Live Up” (mp3)
All songs CANCON
Born Ruffians are back on the road and back in Vancouver, Wednesday, October 5th. They are on tour with Tokyo Police Club and The Elwins. See you at the show. (Also check out last week’s episode of The Interview Show will be my chat with The Elwins!)
I also will release my extended version of this chat. Enjoy!
When I met with Paul from PS I Love You in the alley behind Vancouver’s beautiful Vogue Theatre to chat, he had been running around all day in search of a new guitar pedal. Paul was #99 of SPIN magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. (He beat out Skrillex at #100.) We talked about everything including what its like to beat out Skrillex (who is not really known as a guitarist) and whether or not Paul still constantly dreams about his death. You’ll have to listen!
PS I Love You “Friends Forever” You might be tempted to think this track is about the friendship between Paul (vocals/guitar) and Benjamin (drums)–the heart of this band. You’ll have to listen to my interview to hear the truth!
PS I Love You “In My Mind At Least” Another great track from the band’s latest record, For Those Who Stay.
