Painful Burning: Interview: Ross Farrar (Ceremony, The Down House, Hammertime)

matadorrecords:

Painful Burning:
Can we talk about the new album at all? 

Ross Farrar:
Yeah, sure. What do you want to know? 

Painful Burning:
What’s the album name? 

Ross Farrar:
I can’t tell you that. 

Painful Burning:
Why? 

Ross Farrar:
I don’t know. Maybe I should. 

Painful Burning:
Yeah, just put it out there. 

Ross Farrar:
Right on the internet, boom, right now? 

Painful Burning:
Yeah. 

Ross Farrar:
I can’t do it, sorry. 

Painful Burning:
Why? 

Ross Farrar:
It has the word “The” in it. 

Painful Burning:
But why can’t you say it’s The *-****** ***

Ross Farrar:
I’m not going to, don’t ask me. 

Painful Burning:
Is Matador not letting you? 

Ross Farrar:
Yeah, they’ll get mad at us probably. I’ll get mad at myself. I don’t want people to know what the title is yet. 

Painful Burning:
So Matador’s lawyers will get mad at me if I put the title here? 

Ross Farrar:
Yeah, you’ll get sued. I’m going to sue you personally if you do. 

Painful Burning:
Because you’ve heard of my history with Epitaph’s lawyers? 

Ross Farrar:
No.

Early Works

Paul Bohan. One of the true honest-to-god legends of the North Bay. I’ve seen him eat a live snake, teeth pulled out from trying to tug-o-war mouth-to-mouth with a pit bull, various acts of public intoxication and nudity. 

This is an old man walking with his wife in Sausalito, CA. If you ever go there check out ‘No Name Bar.’ There is nothing in front to let you know it’s there, just a door. But, some of the greatest musicians in the world have played there, and to this day show up on a whim - mostly Jazz and Blues, but it can vary. 

Took this picture in Union Square, SF. I was just starting at City College of San Francisco sometime around 2005, and would walk the streets trying to get crazy stuff. 

The tape on the car reads: “”Yes, cops are the biggest car thieves in town. They have tow trucks and auctions to prove it. And everybody knows it.”
