Scroobius Pip is probably best known for his partnership with Dan Le Sac and their killer first single "Thou Shalt Always Kill". They are a hip-hop duo, combining electronic beats with sung, spoken, and rapped lyrics. Signed with the Sunday Best record label, dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip released their debut album in 2008. The name "Scroobius Pip" is an intentional misspelling of the Edward Lear poem, The Scroobious Pip.
I first met Mr Pip back in 2006 at The Drum & Money in Ipswich and he left an unforgettable impression. We were lucky enough to have him down to our second SoapBox and he brought the whole room to a stand still. This talented young man introduced me to the idea of performance poetry and he will forever be one of my absolute favourite living poets.
HOT OFF THE PRESS: Scroobius Pip is releasing his first solo album with a live band and a series of collaborations. He is now touring the UK and Europe, having set up his own record label to release all of his stuff, a DIY, independently spirited anti-popstar and lyrical craftsman. Congratulations Scroob and good luck, we love what ya do!
