The Cribs' third album, Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever was released on 21 May 2007; the record was produced by Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand.

Ross is known by friends for his dry sense of humour, and being a very down to earth person.When asked about being designated the band's drummer Jarman said; "As far as me being on the drums, I’m sure it's purely to do just with the fact that I’m the youngest so I get the worst instrument. You know, like the oldest kid gets the biggest room; the youngest gets the smallest bedroom. The youngest gets the drum kit while the oldest gets a guitar and sing at the front."

Broken Wrist

In March 2009 Ross was reported to have broken his left wrist in a skateboarding accident, whilst recording The Cribs 4th album in Los Angeles California. After only having one track laid down, he carried on and finished the last 11 tracks taking Vicodin in between takes, then having his wrist cast after finishing his album commitments 10 days later.
