Goldie - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #156  

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to YOU - and three times welcomed you are to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip, episode 156 at that! A proper filfy drum n' bass banger right here this week too as Pip is joined FINALLY after a long bout of scheduling and planning by the one and only, the Metalhead himself, the UK's national drum & bass treasure - Goldie! "The barbarians from within will raise their heads and rise the deities..." ...and that's one single quote from this absolutely ram packed and intense juggernaught rollercoaster of an episode, as Pip white-knuckles the railing and hold on for dear life as the whirlwind rolls through town and demolishes all in its path! The whirlwind being Goldie, that is. I'm sure you gathered that. Finding his home out in Phuket these days, the path has been rocky, full on, winding and incredible and Goldie has lived through it all - the raves, the graf days out in the Bronx, early days of techno, being a household name in what they used to call 'intelligent drum & bass' with his smash hit 'Inner City Life', a rugged divorce, heavy personal life events including the passing of his mother, and every single second underpinned by his unending appetite for his craft and music making. A fantastic and thrilling ride of an episode, which will make you want to dig out the back catalogue and reminisce over the past while waiting for his new album 'The Journey Man' to download... As Goldie put it himself; "There are no full stops in my life... At all..." Oh and wait for the American and German accents later on. Blimey. ••••• GOLDIE on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/MRGOLDIE ••••• GOLDIE on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/mrgoldie ••••• 'The Journey Man' by Goldie - https://goldie.lnk.to/TYMFP •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Christopher Fairbank (Part 2) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #155  

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back to PART 2 of episode 155 of DPP (as we can call it now since you're all familiar from part 1) with Scroobius Pip! How great was part 1 eh? Well find that comfortable spot with your nominated listening apparatus from a few hours ago and prepare to be doubly satisfied as you enjoy the second part with CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK! So much goodness, as Christopher gets deep into the acting science with past and previous, and rounds up this episode with some phenomenal tales from the sets of the original Tim Burton 'Batman' and David Fincher's 'Alien 3'... Those anecdotes alone could well make their own episodes, some crazy business by the sounds of things! Absolute madness. Besides that, there's a ton more to uncover, with personal philosophies, morals, experiences, lessons, so much to ensure that you keep checking for Christopher's work from here on out and back into the past. Amazing stuff from a true stage and screen veteran. Enjoy, again! ••••• AUF WIEDERSEHEN PET on...

Christopher Fairbank (Part 1) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #155  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 155 of the fresh, fly, wild and bold DISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST with Scroobius Pip! Hopefully you have found a comfortable spot and your phone is fully charged, or at least at like 35% minimum or thereabouts (or your iPod or however you go about your business), and you are ready for a grand double part dose of goodness as Pip is joined by acting heavyweight Christopher Fairbank! With a rich and varied career in front of the camera, Clavering's own Christopher obviously has a ton of tales to share and good lord you're gonna get some here... He and Pip find time to sit down and "set the chat among the pigeons" (word to Alan Partridge) and get down and dirty in the earlier years of Christopher's life. While he has many a tale to tell about the acting side of things, you'll love his rundown of his early life and growing up - a full on cinematic narrative in itself, combining boarding schools, smoking at an insanely early age, discovering acting instincts on stage through sudden improv, being thoroughly dissuaded from acting by his boardmaster, arrest, drugs, some time spent at Her Majesty's Pleasure, bikes, suspension, owning the stage, and SO so much more. Just wonderful, and Pip sews the whole lot together masterfully. The only bad thing is you'll have to wait it out for part two... But just be patient... It's on the way... In the meantime - this will keep you thoroughly entertained!

Neil Fitzmaurice - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #154  

Welcome welcome welcome to your 154th episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! And that is an actual factual statement as Pip has been on each and every one, without fail, sometimes more than once a week at that. So it's actually MORE than 154 really... But anyway - let's get down to business. Another wonderful actor-based chat this week as Pip sits down with one of Liverpool's finest Mr NEIL FITZMAURICE, actor, comedian, writer and more! Neil and Pip find themselves working alongside one another currently on a new film called 'Walk Like A Panther' (which has been announced so this can be referred to by name!), and make use of the canteen on-set to have a full on, broad-ranging and hugely entertaining discussion covering the whole lot - politics and the current electoral situation, the Hillsborough tragedy which hit Neil very personally and comprehensively in a number of ways, his upbringing and early life where his playwright seeds were sewn, right up to his acting career which found him as main player in Peter Kay's 'Phoenix Nights' (and 'That Peter Kay Thing'), a nice cameo in 'The Office', regular offender as Jeff in 'Peep Show' and a great deal more since then including his awesome comedian career too... Fantastic stuff from a real veteran, who has passion and dedication, along with pride and experience. Inspiration stuff. Also - shoutout to Stephen Graham who is rapidly becoming the spiritual godfather of the Distraction Pieces podcast! ••••• NEIL on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/Fitzyfella ••••• NEIL on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/fitzyfella (at time of linking, no posts but stay tuned...!) ••••• HONOURABLE MENTION TO STEPHEN GRAHAM! - https://twitter.com/StephenGraham73 •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Sofia Boutella - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #153  

Welcome. Welcome. And you know what? You've earned it. Welcome. Now we're done with the formalities, consider yourself appropriately welcomed to your ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THIRD episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! One fiddy three. Imagine that. In a drastic change to last week's solo spoken word episode, Pip has some real life company this week, and as such this is a truly golden episode - ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy the shining ray of light that is Sofia Boutella! One of those incredibly inspirational episodes where the conversation really drives through some lovely terrain, and you'll enjoy where this journey takes you for real. Sofia is currently all over the place (as Pip witnessed via the medium of the good old American billboard) with her new blockbuster 'The Mummy' on release (co-starring some fella whose first name is Tom, that's all the info we have at this point), but you may well know her from her varied work in 'Star Trek', 'Kingsman', and killing it in an insane series of Nike ads a little while back. Oh and touring with Madonna of course. So basically casually running things from top to bottom, essentially. Not an ounce of egotism or arrogance here from Sofia - instead, you can expect a humble, inspirational and uplifting tale as she runs (and dances) through her life up to now and where the paths looks like it's headed... From Algeria to France and then to Hollywood, it's been a tightrope at times, and often with not a safety net in sight. This is what happens when you chase your dreams and catch the bastards, people...

Living Room Spoken Word - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #152  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 152 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! In a slight alteration to the usual proceedings to which we have all become so accustomed, the guest this week is SCROOBIUS PIP his goddamn self! Working with the formula of such Speech Development Records releases such as 'At Home With Polar' (Polarbear) or 'At Home With Rob' (Rob Auton), Pip sat down in his temporary residence up in Los Angeles and recorded a selection of his poems read from his book 'Poetry In (e)Motion', the graphic poetry novel released all the way back in 2010. Pip's been crazy busy with all manner of podcast and acting related activity of late, over the past couple of years in fact, so this is a very cool opportunity to sit in with your host and indulge in some non 'Ask Pip' episode company for a change! No spoilers as to what you'll be treated to here, but it's a fantastic episode and a different one to usual. It's a goody for the original Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip heads, the solo Pip appreciators and even those who may not know that Pip even made music or did spoken word before all of this! The mild background noise of the hustle and bustle of LA in the background trickles in through the windows here and there too to add a lush, subtle ambience and give a pleasant foundation to Pip's already engaging poems. So sit back and relax, or find a calm space in your potentially busy environment, maybe find a nice tuck-spot on the train carriage next to the door and the seat barrier (you know the spot) and while away an hour or so with Pip. •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• 'POETRY IN (e)MOTION' book - https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com/en-gb/artist/scroobius-pip/hardbacks/poetry-in-e-motion •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Huey Morgan - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #151  

Welcome welcome welcome to episode 151 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Very happy to have you aboard. This week is a straight up New Yorican banger, as Pip is joined by the infamous, the notorious, the Fun Lovin' Criminal himself Mister Huey Morgan! A long awaited one right here, as Pip has forged a friendship with Huey over the years so a chat was always on the cards between these two. From his days misbehaving in New York back in the day (now currently causing havoc in Somerset!), to joining the Marines and channeling his inner aggression into more positive areas, to bartending and setting up a band which would later lead to an illustrious music career, all peppered with real life madness - living through 9/11, a standoff with a Hanson member (and close relation), and that appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Huey is a powerful presence in the music industry and whether you've been down since Fun Lovin' Criminals or picked up on him through his 6 Music show, you'll get a lot out of this episode - a solid chat you'll wish would go on for far longer (well it kind of can if you peep Huey's podcast in forthcoming weeks - more on that in THIS podcast!) - enjoy the gawd Huey Morgan! And here's to a good number of you having his mantra cycling around your head long after the listening is done - "What Would The Bronx Do?" ••••• HUEY on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/OfficialHuey ••••• FUN LOVIN' CRIMINALS on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/funlovincrims ••••• HUEY MORGAN: OFF THE RECORD podcast! – https://www.acast.com/hueyofftherecord ••••• 6 MUSIC - The Huey Show - www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00ds8lp •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Gemma Cairney - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #148  

Welcome ONE, welcome TWO, and as tradition dictates, welcome THREE to the Distraction Pieces Podcast! Thank you for coming, or returning, or however you're working it. Very nice it is to have you here - and it's another goody this week as Scroobius Pip catches up with his old pal Gemma Cairney! A proper fun get together here as Gemma's golden tones fill the podcast with light and energy, and it's an all round good time from start to end, even when heavy topics are brought up and handled. Hear her story and how she got where she is, which is a very cool place indeed - maverick broadcaster and seasoned BBC veteran (the cool place where she is, in literal terms, is Margate). She's insanely busy at all times, DJing and presenting and podcasting, but she's also got a new book out called 'Open' which you are cordially invited to check out and enjoy at your leisure.

Kelly Marcel - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #147  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME once again three more times to your weekly dose of Distraction Pieces Podcast in mp3 format from up in the sky somewhere directly to your earpieces! This week your host Scroobius Pip is joined by none other than his old pal and script/screenwriter Kelly Marcel! A crazy story right here which Kelly unfolds for you, not before she relays how she rescued a fearless but accident prone squirrel and nursed it back to bitey and aggro health... From her days back in the book corner at school (a punishment area, not for recreation) up to her days in the video store hanging with a then fairly green Tom Hardy, and her reasons for ending up there which involved a not so supportive school system, hear how she became a full on fully qualified silver screen smash through various acting jobs (of COURSE The Bill is involved!), up to her crossing paths with the director of all directors himself Stephen Spielberg. The story gets no less intense or full on from there on, as she barrels through such films as 'Saving Mr Banks', '50 Shades Of Grey' and some ace newness on the way, and also hear her story of how she started and ended her relationship with the series 'Terra Nova', which is how the whole saga began, writing the script in her spare hours at the video store. Without giving any more away then, here is the inspiring and wonderful Kelly Marcel! Saver of squirrels, rescuer of dogs, writer of scripts, mother of child, an all round powerhouse! ••••• KELLY on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/MissMarcel ••••• 'SAVING MR BANKS" trailer (old but gold) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5kYmrjongg ••••• KELLY on IMDB! – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0545150 •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Being pals for many a year from the early days, rocking tours together and just being genuine mates who talk and do stuff together, they have a lot to ramble about and many bases are covered - the craft itself, the makers and doers, how they got where they are, what they're up to now, life, love, the universe, the whole thing.

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME (three in a row, no commas) to another slammer of an episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A proper jolly episode it is too, as Pip is joined by James Buckley, or as you may know him, Jay from The Inbetweeners! Or indeed any other given name of one of his many roles on television... Pip was introduced to James via his DrunkCast (and real life) mate Stu Whiffen, and here we are in the room with the two, kicking it like old mates - a nice and broad-ranging conversation, hitting on The Inbetweeners as you would expect and demand, playing young Del Boy in Rock & Chips, his own computer gaming Youtube channel 'Completed It Mate' and how he started and developed it all, his life out in Los Angeles and the myriad weirdness within, and being an actor in general. His take on being an Englishman out there and auditioning is well worth peeping, and hints and how UK folk have a knack for cutting through that actor-type-stuff with genuine awkward UK charm. Race relations are also covered, as are James's past experience with shows that he morally objects to, and there's just tons to sink yer teeth into here - great stuff, for Inbetweeners heads and people who have never seen a single episode.
