nAmE: Gordie Farrell  - LBs: 150 hT: 5'11   hOmE:Selkirk MB, CANADA   
iNstRuMEnt: Mid 50s Kay custom     eAriLeSt R'n'R mEmORy: First record i ever bought was Buddy Holly 'Peggy Sue' on 45. You could still get all that stuff on vinyl in the 80s. I think i got it at a place in Winnipeg called Pepper records. I was 10.    fAv bOoK: I don't have time to read. I do more writing than reading.    fAv fOoD: same as my brudder, Krispy Kremes    fAv jUnK fOoD: Tim Hortons doughnuts, wait, junk food? i thought you said CRAP!       bAnD mEmBeRs pIsSeD oFf: All of them!       tOuR vAnS riTe oFfS: 2      
wErSt gIG: We did a show in Nelson, BC a few years back that ended in a full on barroom brawl and the entire Nelson police force out to calm things. We arrived in Nelson that afternoon and the Atomic hillbilly spent the day inviting girls from town. Well i guess the hillbilly had spread himself a little thin that night and one thing led to another and...to top it off, the accommodations provided for the band consisted off a couple sets of bunk beds in a garage behind the bar. Still not the worst place we've stayed!

fAv aLkieHoLiC bEvEraGe: Gotta be the Yukon moonshine! Fresh from the still! We heard about the moonshine well up there playin  n' got us some. Came in an old Canada dry ginger ale plastic 2lt. When the fella handed it to us all he said was 'Be careful'. Man when that stuff hit yer lips they went instantly numb, and stay away from open flames! YEE - HAW, i thought i would go blind!      fAv TFB tRaCk: I like em' all, but i'd have to single out 'Breakin' out of here' as a standout. We worked on that song a long time to get it to the point it ended up at. It went through a lot of different arrangements and didn't really come together til we were recording it. The second verse was written in the studio. We ended up capturing a lot of that original raw energy because of that. I think the video captured that also.      oThEr iNstRuMEnt: We decided we wanted to have some piano on 'Ballad' n' Bigtown playboy'. So we went to the goodwill store. Bought a piano for a $100 and loaded it in the van. I learned to play it over the next couple of weeks before going into the studio. Check it out, it's not bad. Played a lot of harmonica on 'Ballad' too.        hAiR sTuFf: We've sampled all variety of pomades from around the world and for our taste, hands down the best would have to be The Farrell Bros. pomade. Years of experience has culminated in perfection of our own custom blend. We spent a lot of time n' effort on this project and went back to the drawing board more than once. Try it, you won't be disappointed.    dA fUtUrE: more tours n' records!
