Guest Playlist #3: Scroobius Pip
Vulture Hound Guest Playlist #3 comes from poet, spoken word artist and one half of ‘Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip’… it’s Scroobius Pip!
1 -Darling Nicki by Prince
Pure filth and wonderment. Prince is god.
2 – Lush Life by Johnny Hartman & John Coltrane
My favourite song of all ime. Its just perfect. Such a beautiful vocal.
3 – Pieces of a Man by Gil Scott Hero
Another perfect song. First time I heard it I literally froze.
4 – Radio by Rancid
Rancid are probably my favourite band over all and this track always fires me up.
5 – When Eight Becomes Two Zeros by Glassjaw
I get this album out every winter, without fail. Best listened to on cold streets.
6 – Purexed by P.O.S
This is how Hip Hop should be done. Energetic, inteligent and hard.
7 - Rewrite by Sage Francis
This was the first Sage song i fell in love with (and learnt every damn word.)
8 – Ante Up by MOP
Everytime I DJ at my clubnight (WE.ARE.LIZARDS) I play this song. If people don;t lose their shit they are removed.
9 – Feel It by Kate Bush
Kate Bush is a genius and on my “most wanted” list of collaborators. Someone have a word…
10 – When You Were Mine by Cyndi Lauper
Co-written by Prince and an absolute gem of a track. Lauper is underrated. People get hung up on “Girls Just wanna have fun” but there’s an awesome back catalogue sitting there.
11 - Slow Motion by Third Eye Blind
There’s an instrumental version of this but the lyrics on the full version are fantastic.
12 – Take Warning by Operation Ivy
Another soundtrack to my youth. Long live Op. Ivy.
13 – In My Eyes by Minor Threat
Minor Threat were amazing (and way better than Fugazi… I dont care what anyone says) and this was the obvious choice from their catalogue.
14 – Blow by Tyler The Creator
When BASTARD came out I was blown away by the whole record and this track was the highlight.
15 - Guess I’ll Hang My Tear’s Out to Dry by Dexter Gordon
I have to admit I needed to google this track. I know it as “Track two off of GO”. Beautiful though.
