Scroobius Pip Early Career

Scroobius Pip was motivated by punk music as teenager to buy guitar and establish numerous bands with his mates. His musical interests quickly expanded to include hip hop and jazz, and he got interested in spoken word performers such as Gil Scott-Heron, Sage Francis, and Saul Williams. 
This pushed him to do it alone; the prospect of having no one to rely on or blame except himself was enticing. His stage name was inspired by Edward Lear’s poem “The Scroobius Pip.” “I enjoyed the story,” he subsequently explained. It’s about monster that has no idea what it is… 
By the end of the poem, he learns he is nothing more than The Scroobious Pip.

He doesn’t fit into any one category and can just be his own creature.”

While working at an HMV shop in 2002, he took the decision to begin saving his writing. He quit his work and toured the country in 1987 Toyota Space Cruiser after writing full-spoken word set and saving enough money to live for year without income. 
Seeking out gig listings in each new place he visited, he showed up and played his set to the fans queued outside the venues, with varied results. After few months of traveling across the country, Scroobius Pip returned home and chose to concentrate on London and Essex, attending four or five spoken word concerts, open mic nights, or poetry slams every week — wherever that would let him play.

Various producers expressed a desire to work with him, but it was the beats of former HMV colleague Dan le Sac that captured his attention and led to the formation of Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip.

Solo musical career

2006: No Commercial Breaks

Scroobius Pip’s debut album No Commercial Breaks was self-released in 2006, marking the start of his label Speech Development Records. Originally limited to a run of 1,000 copies, the album quickly sold out, resulting in various online bootlegs. The album was re-released in 2012, a two-CD special with a bonus disc featuring his 60-minute sold-out spoken word show from the Royal Albert Hall on 21 November 2012.

2011: Distraction Pieces

Distraction Pieces is the second solo album by Scroobius Pip released in the UK on his own Speech Development Records and in the US on Strange Famous Records.

Released on 19 September 2011, the album entered and peaked at No. 35 on the UK albums chart. Produced by Yila and Worgie, the record sees Scroobius Pip’s lyrical dexterity and acclaimed blend of rap meets spoken-word play out across a collision of punk, rock and hip hop production.

Collaborators include Travis Barker of Blink-182, Danny Lohner aka Renholder of Nine Inch Nails, Sage Francis, XL Records boss Richard Russell, P.O.S, Zane Lowe, Aupheus, B. Dolan, Steve Mason of The Beta Band and Natasha Fox, who provides the vocals for ‘Feel It’, a cover of Scroobius Pip’s favourite Kate Bush song.

Other releases

2010: Poetry in (e) Motion

Poetry in (e) Motion is a collection of Scroobius Pip’s poems illustrated by artists recruited via his MySpace page. The book was published in hardback on 26 March 2010 by Titan Books.

In 2007, Scroobius Pip put a shortlist of his poems up on MySpace and asked artists and illustrators to submit their interpretations. The only rule was that the poem had to be included in the artwork, in full and unabridged. Within the first few days, he had received a small but passionate response. This number grew over the following year, resulting in hundreds of submissions from all over the world.

Opening with a foreword by Nick Frost, Poetry in (e) Motion sees nine of Pip’s poems illustrated by his fans with an impressive range of styles inspired by everything from street art, tattoos and crime noir movies.

Radio show

In April 2013, XFM announced Scroobius Pip was joining the station to host his own weekly show The Beatdown. This would be the alternative music station’s first dedicated hip hop and spoken word program.

Speaking of the news, Pip commented: “The chance to work with XFM was one I couldn’t pass up. It’s the station that launched my career and, through amazing people like John Kennedy and Eddy Temple-Morris, has always been at the forefront of giving exposure to new sounds.

Hip-hop is such a deep genre and, through my show, I want to shine a light on some of the stuff that maybe doesn’t get enough of it.”

The first episode of The Beatdown was broadcast on 27 April 2013 from midnight to 1 am with the following track list:

  1. Killer Mike – “R.A.P. Music”
  2. B. Dolan – “Which Side Are You On? “
  3. Ghostpoet – “Meltdown”
  4. Sage Francis – “Mullet” (Spoken Word)
  5. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – “Thrift Shop “
  6. Rap Battle Feature: Eminem vs Everlast
  7. P.O.S – “Fuck Your Stuff”
  8. Tim Dog and KRS-One – “I Get Wrecked “
  9. Ratking – Piece of Shit
  10. The Hood Internet – The XX Gon’ Give It To Ya

On 12 May 2014, The Beatdown won ‘Best Specialist Music Programme’ at the 32nd annual Sony Radio Academy Awards. The most prestigious awards in the UK radio industry calendar, the show triumphed over tough competition from fellow nominees Zane Lowe, MistaJam, David Rodigan and Mark Radcliffe. The judges commented: “A maverick, nonlinear, nonconformist and radical triumph in every sense of the word.

The Beatdown is a courageous endeavour that restores faith in the transformational power of radio with a unique presenter who sounds like no one else on British radio.”

The Beatdown was broadcast every Saturday night 12 am – 1 am on XFM, until August 2014.


In 2014, Scroobius Pip started a weekly podcast series called The Distraction Pieces Podcast. In each episode, he has held an in-depth interview with a range of comedians, actors, musicians, and DJs.
