Frank Turner • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #287
Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 287 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! What a treat this week, as Pip is joined for the triumphant return of the UK’s folk punk legend FRANK TURNER!
…and about time too, as it’s been over 250 episodes since they last had a proper chat! As you can hear, the gap immediately disappears as they pick up effortlessly and gain quick ground about what’s been happening in their lives in the interim. Expect to hear all about the Frank Turner years, moving with ease through such topics as the parallels of touring and wedding organisation, the effects of extensive touring on a person’s life, the blowout cycle and mental health, tour PTSD and habit forming, the perils of talking about fame while being very self aware, cultural satnav and tour hacks, “grebos”, the plus side of the internet in terms of hunting for music, gateway bands, festival thoughts, the punk and non-punk ethos of opening for anyone, and most importantly - his 8TH SOLO ALBUM! With that comes his newfound respect for podcasters, the issue of a man writing about women and then where the path goes from here. PACKED AND AWESOME is what it is. You enjoy yerself!
