Holly Ross (The Lovely Eggs) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #140  

Welcome, welcome, and BOOM another welcome right there to this, episode 140 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Please welcome (three times) to the stage, Lancaster's indie Queen, frontwoman of The Lovely Eggs, Holly Ross! A glorious chat with a hardcore touring indie band veteran, and thoroughly enlightening at that - a proper peek behind the curtain (or the sliding door of a tourvan) at what goes on in the day to day, which is a ton of hard work in itself but add to THAT a small child and you have yourself a full plate with all the trimmings... But Holly shows it can be done, and this is a great, inspiring back and forth revealing some fantastic life-hacks for bands and parents in bands who are on the road, as well as a comprehensive rundown of Holly's history in the indie scene. Not only that, hear how awesome their fanbase is too! Get involved - get listening, Holly's ace and you should peep the music of The Lovely Eggs (and if you want to dig deeper, her old band Angelica too).

David Johns - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #139  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 139 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! We trust that your pancakes were all perfect. We also trust all is well with all y'all. Assuming that all IS well with all y'all, prepare to get weller, as you're about to make friends with comedian turned actor Dave Johns! ...and to introduce the man himself, who better to quote than Dave himself: "Hello, my name's Dave Johns, I'm a comic and I hear Ken Loach is looking for a bloke my age - I'd be up for that" - yes indeed, you may recognize him from his recent award winning and audience heart winning film 'I, Daniel Blake', which has been steadily making noise and gaining well earned attention not only in the UK but worldwide - not necessarily an easy feat for a film addressing the UK bureaucracy of benefits and those caught within. Hear Dave's lovely and entertaining run down of what got him here, his comic background and history in running comedy nights, right up to his acting life and all that the Ken Loach directed 'I, Daniel Blake' has to offer, address and talk about. And when you hear where his personal fork in the life-road may have taken him, you'll surely grin and maybe even consider a new direction in your own path... Brilliant stuff, and Dave is definitely someone to keep up with, Enjoy! And watch 'I, Daniel Blake' at your nearest opportunity. Or rewatch it if you've already done so.

A proper nice chat as we get the full ins and outs of Katherine's journey along the comic landscape, from the Canadian badlands to the UK panel show circuit and FAR far beyond... From her days wishing she was Jessica Simpson, to opening for Amy Schumer, to headlining her own Netflix special 'In Trouble', which is destroying the internet currently...

Wim Hof - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #136  

WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME to episode 136 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A seasonally appropriate episode at that, as Pip is joined by the Ice Man himself, the legendary Dutch daredevil Mr Wim Hof! Don't get all wrapped and warm for this one - it's going to get incredibly frosty up in here... Chances are you may not already have made Wim's acquaintance - that's fine, for after this podcast you will most likely be digging around online and listening to his glorious cadence for hours to follow... If you have already broken the ice (skate over that pun) (and that one) with the man, you will surely be up to speed on The Wim Hof Technique, his apparently superhuman abilities to withstand cold, his infectiously positive and inspiring tones and talking points and his many accomplishments in the field of human endurance. Either way, this is a brilliant conversation (recorded from Wim's home in the outskirts of Amsterdam) where you will learn about his said method, how he came upon such techniques and how he has applied them, the science behind a lot of it and, oh, something about climbing Kilimanjaro in his shorts. And standing in a container of ice cubes in Manhattan for an hour and a bit. Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the presence of a modern day comic book superhero. Listen, learn, be entertained and uplifted. It's a goodie this week, people. BE ALERT! Wim will be making his way to the UK in April!

Homelessness Special Part 2 - Haircuts 4 Homeless - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #135  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to part 2 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast homelessness special with Scroobius Pip! So far you may have already listened to part 1 with the fabulous Mustard Tree organisation, and now you are about to hear from the neatly trimmed and perfectly coiffed Stewart Roberts and Lee Dixon of Haircuts 4 Homeless! A name so perfectly descriptive that it tells you exactly what it's about in three words. Genius. Stewart has played a major part in cutting Pip's hair (and that of his family members) over the years since he was a young'un, which kicks off this fascinating and motivational chat with the guys - naturally Pip went his own way with his facial hair but that's a different story for another time. Inspired by Mark Bustos, who lit the way for offering haircuts and grooming for the homeless population in the US, Mark set about on his own work in the area, fully utilising his own completely transferable skillset and beginning work in Essex. Since then his idea has flourished and taken him all over the world, and seen a great expansion since his initial plan began. It's really engaging to hear how something as seemingly simple as a haircut can change someone, but that feeling of pride in appearance and having someone take time over ensuring your hair looks neat and tidy can really make a world of difference. It gives back dignity and self respect and is something that everyone should be entitled to. So enjoy this episode with Stewart and Lee and see what's been going on, how they do it, what they plan on doing in the future and get inspired!

Garth Jennings - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #134  

Welcome welcome welcome one and all (but YOU specifically) to episode 134 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Fancy seeing you here on a Wednesday of all days. Well, since we're all present and correct let's get you set up and listening to this ferociously awesome episode with very special guest GARTH JENNINGS shall we? Yes we shall! You may very well know him from his previous director work on 'Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy', 'Son Of Rambow' or way back even further to the supreme video for Blur's 'Coffee & TV', and maybe you heard him on the always ace Adam Buxton podcast, but now you get him all to yourself for an hour or so as he opens up to Pip about his new film 'Sing', amongst a whole world of other things... A crazy entertaining and uplifting, energetic chat full of enthusiasm and just straight up fun, getting into the circumstances surrounding the beginning of 'Sing', and how this animation about animals gained traction from a germ of an idea to casually hitting up Wes Anderson to get a quick voice recording for a character, and of course everything besides - some great tales about getting the immense cast list together and the process within, how to get a perfect performance from his kids (the good old fashioned 'chase and tickle' technique) and just inspiring, nice, friendly goodness.

Matt Willis - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #132  

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to YOU, the listener, of this, the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip - episode 132 at that! With any luck the new year has been treating you wonderfully, and at the very least, reasonably, and you've all been settling into 2017 snugly and comfortably. The Distraction Pieces Podcast will get you through, whatever the weather. ...and this week is no exception, as we welcome Matt Willis from Busted! Maybe they're a band you've enjoyed in the past, maybe you've snuck some Busted in your regular playlist rotation here and there, maybe a sibling or pal of yours has been a follower fan... Well, whatever way the band has made it into your radar, now's the time to "look for the similarities, not the differences" (a poignant quote from this week and last week, coincidentally enough) as we get into the life of Matt and the many, MANY trials and tribulations of being in an ultra popular pop band in the early 00's. Who would have thought it would be so tricky... A fascinating look under the Busted bonnet as we hear about the four-track foundations, the organic band growth, the astronomical launch to fame and stardom and the heaviness of a bandmate who is struggling with it all... Not only that, you will also have a ringside seat to Matt's own struggles with alcohol addiction, a unique tale but one which also resonates all too often among those in the spotlight... Thankfully Matt remained strong and is here to tell Pip the tale, so sit back and listen!

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME TO 2017!!! Happy new year to all Distraction Pieces crew (and non-crew, it's all love this year), we hope you had a phenomenal start to it all and saw off the remainder of last year's mayhem and carnage appropriately. Here's to the goodness and greatness ahead for all! SPEAKING OF WHICH... Here's a proper slice of Distraction Pieces Podcast confection for your ears, featuring very special guest Rob Parker! Maybe you know him... It's possible you don't... Nevertheless - prepare to make a new friend in this professional rugby player-turned-actor, as he gives you the full - the VERY full - scoop on everything Rob, from his upbringing right on through to the present day, where you will find him co-starring with your vibrant host Mr Scroobius Pip (and acting titanium Tom Hardy and Stephen Graham) in the upcoming 'Taboo'! A fascinating rundown, ranging from how he made it into the world of pro-sports via an award-winning and braggadocios schoolmate, his biking interests which date back to when he was but a three year old, all with the through line of his admirable and inspiration commitment to work and all round work ethic, down to sleeping in his car on the way to acting spots just to get the job done. Not only that, but tons more nuggets and jewels in this wide ranging and uplifting conversation, which also breaks down his heavy addiction to painkillers and how he dragged himself through it all, and rounding off wonderfully with a killer tale of how he actually made it to the screen in the first place... You will be sticking around for that for real... ENJOY!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy the final quarter of the mayhem... So what do we have here... Well - you know the routine.
