Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 237 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Long awaited and hugely exciting longform chat awesomeness with the Prodigy legend LIAM HOWLETT!

“…I like tension in music… and I think the stage is where it manifests itself…”

A rare one right here folks, as Liam spends a good chunk of time chatting with Pip on all things Prodigy and solo, spanning the entirety of his incredible career. Such an engaging and interesting talk, running through the lot - from how he generates ideas and keeps writing through the craziness of tour life, the influence of punk, two-tone, hip hop and electro, early days winning mixtape competitions, the days of early rave and being introduced to acid house by Westwood of all people (circuitously but kind of!), the meeting of Nick Halkes up at XL Records and hand to hand demo hustling, the immediacy of making beats over learning instruments, moving from sonic landscape to sonic landscape naturally, the difference of harder over faster, the importance of image, finding the perfect band setup over a decade after their start, the amazing origin story of their hit Firestarter, their natural progression as a band, the Beastie Boys situation and just SO much more… And this is only part 1… KEEP IT LOCKED, PEOPLE!!!
