Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 236 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A fully bearded throwdown for you this week, yes people this is the one you’ve been so patiently waiting for - Pip is joined by the gawds SAGE FRANCIS and B DOLAN aka EPIC BEARD MEN!
A full power meeting of the beards right here, which is exactly like sitting in with the trio as they get their chat on. This is your chance to have a seat at the table and listen in on the behind the scenes science of the beardmen, deep in the confines of a Cardiff hotel post-show, as Sage and B sling gems at you with reckless disregard. Expect to hear about it all - hotel routines and rituals and the notorious escape room shower scenarios, Ex Machina, Sage regrets at his best man’s speech at B’s wedding (which are assuaged with swiftness - all is well), being decent and well behaved on the road, how Sage dragged B onstage and changed his role in the touring setup, their relationship on the road and how they got to a happy place, schedules involved with said touring and how life weaves its way in, the meticulous inner runnings of the indie label, making money as a musician (SPOILER it’s impossible), white rappers and the abundance thereof, the weirdness of rap listeners who listen solely to white rappers, Slick Rick and his role as an early emo rapper, the pair’s Edinburgh Fringe shows and how they evolved the setup over two years, working together as a team with history, finding their place on the stage, who looks like who, and all manner of tangents beside. A long overdue meeting of minds and beards. Please enjoy!
• For what it's worth - potential Ex Machina spoiler at 10m30s or so. Just a brief FYI.
