Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 242 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A directorial gemstone right here this week as Pip is joined by ‘Old Man & A Gun’s DAVID LOWERY!
“…that’s one of the things I always look for when I start writing, is like, how can i make this autobiographical… I need to find that thing that makes it connect to me…”
A fascinating sit down here, which is the perfect companion to last week’s film-based episode. Always crazy interesting to hear Pip talk shop with film industry folk as we always get a very pleasant insight into the world in which they inhabit without hearing the same stories or film summaries. With the release of David’s ‘Old Man & A Gun’ on the horizon, he gives us some nice background gossip on the film including the acquiring of Mr Tom Waits as a cast member, and how he maintained composure knowing it would be Robert Redford’s last film. Not only that, we get some further behind the scenes treats about ‘Pete’s Dragon’ and ‘A Ghost Story’ among others, as well as some inspirational nuggets on the power of collaboration, trust, and having a solid crew around you. ALL THIS while battling with a case of laryngitis, giving him the vocal quality of Tom Waits mixed with MF Doom. Wonderful!
