Metal Army.Com "Top Picks of 2010": #9!

Thank you to Cyndi Jo of Metal Army. Com - for including 'Ghosts and Good Stories' at #9 in her *Top 10 of 2010* picks! Once again, we appreciate the rock love.

#9 - My Ruin “Ghosts and Good Stories”

"A lot of times in the week I am awaken by the raunchy beauty of My Ruin’s “The Horror of Beauty” tracks that my iPod shuffle likes to pick, and I am still waiting on that morning that it finally decides to choose one from their “Ghost and Good Stories” release. Creeping away from the nu-metal found in past releases, Tairrie B. and husband/band mate Mick Murphy, approach a more Southern scenic and Sabbath inspired tunes. Tairrie B.’s low growls in “La Ciudad” and “Eyes Black” denotes her raspy shrieks that seem to eclipse the record. Many might totally hate the direction My Ruin has taken– certainly, it works for them and clearly, challenges any promises."

Blast From The Past: 2000 Video Interview!

Hey Everyone!

An old friend of ours and rock writer David Flint posted this video blast from our past on our band page today on Facebook from his website "Strange Things Are Happening". This interview took place on our 'Prayer Under Pressure' UK Tour and was Mick's first time touring with me after recording our first album together a few months earlier. I was a bit hesitant to watch it [for the obvious reasons ] but after it was done, I have to admit that I really enjoyed seeing this footage after so many years and it was also nice to see that everything Mick and I had to say as far as our opinions on topics touched on, still hold true today. It just goes to show that while certain things have changed in our band over the years, there are some things that will will always remain the same.

It's a trip and a walk down our rock memory lane that you just might enjoy checking out as much as we did so I have decided to repost it and share it with you here for your viewing pleasure. It's 22 minutes long and starts out a bit slow but it gets more interesting as it goes. We're looking forward to playing Rock City again on our upcoming UK Tour in March and Mr Flint will be backstage to interview us again as well for a follow up Anniversary chat. Should be good fun.

Interview December 2000

Back in the days when I was co-editing long-defunct music website Noise Culture, I caught up with My Ruin for this interview. The recording took place mid-afternoon in the 'palatial' dressing rooms of Nottingham's Rock City, where the band were playing that evening as part of their UK tour promoting second album 'A Prayer Under Pressure of Violent Anguish' - it was also the twentieth anniversary of the club opening, and so a big party night. Holding the camera and chipping in with comments about Nick Cave was David Achille, one-time guitarist with Aussie band Tumbleweed and a house guest of the time. But that's a whole 'nother story...The text of this interview appeared on Noise Culture, but the video has never been seen. I've left this unedited, so excuse my rambling questions. - David Flint

Ghosts and Good Stories by My Ruin

Why: What is it about long-lasting underground bands that they tend to kick the asses of all of their mainstream counterparts? It’s because of the hard work ethic and their refusal to conform to what’s popular. Doin’ their way. And that is precisely what My Ruin embodies. GHOSTS & GOOD STORIES is both an emotionally deep album as it is thought-provoking.
