nAmE: Shawn Farrell  - LBs: 150    hT: 6ft    hOmE:Selkirk MB, CANADA   
iNstRuMEnt: Gretsch 6120      oThEr iNstRuMEnt: I love the mandolin. I play mandolin all over 'Go to Hell!'. Also play some twisted accordion on 'Ballad'.     bEsT gArAgE sAle fInD: I found an Eddie Cochran Summertime blues 78, mint, for 10 cents! The guy had wanted a quarter but i got him down.      bAnD mEmBeRs pIsSeD oFf: probably a few?    tOuR vAnS riTe oFfS: 0      dReaM kAr: Probably have to be some kind of model A with a big engine, maybe a Hemi. Willys gasser would be cool too.       fAv bOoK: Kerouac's 'On the road' again, can't get tired of that.     fAv fOoD: Krispy Kreme       fAv jUnK fOoD: gotta recipe once while on tour where you take a Krispy Kreme, cut it in half, fry it in a pan with butter and eat it with pancake syrup. bLaDe er kNuCkLeS? Hmmm...switchblade!     fAv aLkieHoLiC bEvEraGe: We did a festival up in the Yukon. While there we had the pleasure to experience the sour toe cocktail. It actually contains a severed, mummified human toe! i guess technically that would count as more of a garnish. Got one with a dog's nut too!

fAv  hAiR sTuFf: We get asked about this all the time. I guess i'd be mental not to plug our own The Farrell Bros. brand pomade available right here in The Farrell Bros. store. I also use a little gel, like dep or something and you can never get any serious height without using hairspray.     wErSt gIG: Gotta be Green gates. We got hired to do this 50s type soc hop. We'll the organizers didn't bother to investigate what we sound like and the audience (not a single person there under 50) were mortified. It was super fancy and tickets were like a hundred bucks! We got sued for 10 thousand dollars in damages. Their claim was we weren't 50s enough. Well duh! We ended up winning though.        eAriLeSt R'n'R mEmORy: I took an old t.v. that was in the garage, hooked it up to a vcr and an antenna on the roof and sat out in the garage til 3am to tape the Stray cats on 'Fridays'. I don't know where the signal was coming from, but you couldn't get it in the house. I guess i was 12.      fAv TFB tRaCk:  Well that changes and i like em' all right now cause the albums fresh and really came off like we had wanted it to. Curbstomp Boogie was a really fun one to record. We really put that one together on the spot and the version that appears on the album is the first time we played that song through in it's entirety. If you listen close you can hear us shoutin' out cues to our drummer!       fAv nOn-aLkieHoLiC bEvEraGe: Canadian slurpees. The rest of the world hasn't caught up with the slurpee technology pioneered in Canada.     fUtUrE:  the next album!
