Blindboy of The Rubberbandits - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #89

Here. Have a welcome. In fact, nah brother man, here have three. Okay fair enough, no Mr Wendall references going forward. Please welcome this week's truly unique and fascinating guest, it's Limerick's own Blindboy from The Rubberbandits!

An absorbing and engaging chat with a very interesting character, who plays half of the Irish comedy music duo who perform and roam the earth with plastic bags over their faces. If you are unfamiliar with the two, let Blindboy take you through it himself as we become acquainted with the very deep thinking and articulate performer, and get an insight into the iceberg-like hidden depths of their songs, how their popularity became a weight on their shoulders which they shook off and refreshed, their forward thinking and evolved points of view and how they really work the humour as a trojan horse (outside) (you'll get it) for their progressive thinking. Oh and Baudrillard and Sartre get a shout out too yo. Excellent stuff. Also - sound note - it may sound scarily like Blindboy is wearing a plastic bag on his head throughout the podcast. This is primarily due to the fact that Blindboy is wearing a plastic bag on his head throughout the podcast. Enjoy!
