dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip to play Wolverhampton

Despite growing up in the same Essex village Stanford Le Hope, dan le sac and Scroobius Pip were merely passing acquaintances before sharing a Christmas season working at the Lakeside branch of HMV. After a brief creative courtship, their very first collaboration struck gold. Hot off the CDR burner, their first song ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ was sent to XFM’s John Kennedy in demo form and within 24 hours Kennedy had played the track on his show. That video has now chalked up 3.5million views on YouTube and the single’s hastily arranged release on Lex cracked the Top 40. Shunning the inevitable major label overtures, Messrs le sac and Pip opted to sign to Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best label, ensuring that their critically acclaimed debut album became one of the leading independent releases of 2008.

Visually and musically dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip defy any prefab industry model, their towering structures of Casio enthused electro-hip-pop often cutting against the conventions of radio programming, and yet they have become airwave and chart regulars.

Following solo albums from both Dan and Pip, the duo returned in October with new album Repent Replenish Repeat and a sold out UK tour that included Birmingham’s The Institute. Now back in spring 2014, the twosome make a welcome return to the midlands for a show at Wolverhampton’s Slade Rooms on Tues 22nd April 2014.
