#338: Scroobius Pip - Words: Live at Edinburgh Fringe (DVD Review)


Scroobius Pip – Words: Live at Edinburgh Fringe
DL/DVD
Out Now

Rapper, poet, all round wordsmith and ambassador of excessive facial hair, Scroobius Pip returns with the DVD of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe show. Louder Than War’s Dave Beech reviews.
When Scroobius Pip erupted out of the spoken word scene at the tail end of 2006 with producer Dan Le Sac and their seminal debut single ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’, little could we predict the cultural force that Pip would become seven years later. From underground poet to national radio host, label boss to author, Scroobius Pip has solidified his reputation as being a member of contemporary indie royalty, all the time whilst taking each of his new ventures in his stride, most recently in the form of his DVD release Live At Edinburgh Fringe which documents the last of 2013s 19 sell-out gigs at The Fringe
