It’s been a fricking age since we posted on here, so it feels good to be back with some news! Firstly you might have already noticed but we are doing some gigs this year, only a few to start with but it’s a, erm… start! Here are the 3 we’ve got booked in so far -
We would book more in but we’ve kinda got our THIRD ALBUM to write, so that has to be our priority but once it’s done we’ll be hitting the road HARD!
Secondly, this is something we’ve tweeted hard already but, in short, Angles and Logic of Chance will once again be available on Vinyl, but we need your help to make this happen. For details head over to dan’s website as he’s already blogged about it!
Finally, whilst we’re still on our DvP Hiatus, it’d be great if y’all could add our solo pages on Facebook & Youtube, it’ll just mean that we a certain that we are still bombarding you all with nonsense. Here are the links…
See you all real soon!
It’s a weird thing in le sac Vs Pip world, we aren’t big on evil master plans but somehow, somethings just fall in to place. Like June 8th, 2006, without knowing what would come of it, we both made our solo debuts, at the same venue, on the same night.
Our latest bit of synchronicity is even tidier, even more like we’re evil geniuses with dome shaped heads & hairless cats…
The very LAST Scroobius Pip & The Distraction Pieces Band show is at Bestival, and the very FIRST dan le sac & Friends show is… erm…. at BESTIVAL! It feels pretty neat to end & begin at the same point, although my touring (dan here btw) is only going to last 2 months compared to Scroob’s 18 months!
Anyway, if you haven’t heard our solo albums yet, go grab them, I’m sure you like them, oh & if you fancy coming along to see the only solo tour I’ll do then just clicky here! Oh & don’t worry about all this solo talk, dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip will be back with our 3rd album soon!

Just about 2 months ago dan le sac released his solo album, Space Between The Words, did you get it?
It features collaborations with Merz, B Dolan, Emmy the Great, Joshua Idehen and a load more! You can pick up a copy from HMV / itunes / Roughtrade or wherever you buy your music from, but if you are not sure have a little listen to the album sampler below!
As the Wembley gig is a bit big (Wembley info) & we really don’t want to fuck it up, we’ve decided to add a show the day before at the Globe, Cardiff. Lets call it a warm up!
But the question we keep getting asked since the show was announced is ‘why Cardiff?’, well it’s simple, we’ve not been there in years, and even Scroob missed it off his solo tour last year, we don’t want people to think we have beef with Cardiff!
It’s also given us the opportunity to do a show with the people behind SWN Festival, we’ve always heard how nice they are, now we get to see it first hand!
Tickets are £12 and you can grab them here.
