Born Ruffians – “Sole Brother”

When I talked to Born Ruffians’ Luke LaLonde about writing Say It, he said the title referred to being more direct with family, friends, and band mates, saying what he meant and “being a dick.” “Sole Brother” addresses his family over a skeletal track: “Sometimes I wish … that I was … an only child.” It’s backed with parental demands (“Go and help your grandfather”) and complaints about sisters not helping out with chores. Is this the kind of stuff that makes you a dick in Canada? Canadians are so nice. He probably lost sleep over calling out his grandpa.
