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!
