Boots Riley - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #243

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 243 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Another very long awaited one here, as Pip is joined by director of the glorious indie hit ‘Sorry To Bother You’ and long-standing member of Oakland rap group The Coup - it’s Boots Riley!


“…as I went on I realised the main thing that I needed to give people was passion…”


Pip’s been lining this one up for a GOOD long while, before the hype was bubbling in the UK for Boot’s debut film as director, and the wonderful news is that it will be in the UK very soon! I for one am sick of reading tweets about how good it is from US people. So it’s great news that us UK folk get a piece… This is a perfect if slightly condensed connection with Pip and Boots, as they get into his desire to be Prince early on, theatre, film school, wanting to sound like Ice Cube, the mainstream-ness of documentaries, having faith in a great cast, his diverse cinematic influences, importance of wardrobe and “beautiful clutter”. Oh, and that whole Spike Lee thing too... Wonderful - enjoy, investigate the film ‘SORRY TO BOTHER YOU’ and go through the back catalogue of THE COUP at your nearest convenience!!!
