vinegar . So just the fact that I showed the fuck up , shows you that it ’ s still there .” - PJ Farley
“ I ’ m making records . In a time when there is no record business shows you that there ’ s still piss and vinegar there .”
- PJ Farley
Steve is a great producer , and instrumentation wise , you know , he could suggest different instruments maybe , or different sounds , something that I wouldn ’ t think of . I just wanted to give myself a little freedom , and kind of release the reins a little bit . Trust the processs a little more .
With everything you have going on do you ever take a moment and think about some of the great moments in your career ?
PJ : That ’ s always there . It ’ s ingrained in me . All of those shows . Those that are the formidable years . Back then it was all full of piss and vinegar . There wasn ’ t a fire bigger than when we were out there doing . Trixter meant everything we were doing . There are many moments that bring me back to that time and place . There were times that we were less than happy playing the music .
Does the same fire and passion exist in the projects you are involved in now ?
PJ : It just comes out in different forms , I mean , the fact that I ’ m still doing it , and it ’ s just the fact that I ’ m making records , in a time when there is no record business , shows you that there ’ s still piss and vinegar . So just the fact that I showed the fuck up , shows you that it ’ s still there . No one ’ s getting rich from doing this shit . So , I mean , I think there ’ s your answer .
What was that moment like for you when Trixter separated from the label and you started getting involved with other projects ?
PJ : When Trixter went back into the shed , Steve and I kept writing and recording . We put together the band “ Throwing Rocks ” which turned into “ Soaked ” which turned into “ 40-Foot Ringo ” which turned into “ Stereo Fallout ”. Right around the “ Stereo Fallout ” time I joined Ra . That was my first step back into the touring and recording cycle . I went back onto a major label , got back on a bus and toured . We were on modern rock radio and doing large festivals . it just felt great being part of the wheel again . A couple of years later , we put Trixter back together . Then I got the call from Lita . Then , Ra got back together .
