Matt Willis - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #132

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to YOU, the listener, of this, the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip - episode 132 at that! With any luck the new year has been treating you wonderfully, and at the very least, reasonably, and you've all been settling into 2017 snugly and comfortably. The Distraction Pieces Podcast will get you through, whatever the weather.

...and this week is no exception, as we welcome Matt Willis from Busted! Maybe they're a band you've enjoyed in the past, maybe you've snuck some Busted in your regular playlist rotation here and there, maybe a sibling or pal of yours has been a follower fan... Well, whatever way the band has made it into your radar, now's the time to "look for the similarities, not the differences" (a poignant quote from this week and last week, coincidentally enough) as we get into the life of Matt and the many, MANY trials and tribulations of being in an ultra popular pop band in the early 00's.

Who would have thought it would be so tricky... A fascinating look under the Busted bonnet as we hear about the four-track foundations, the organic band growth, the astronomical launch to fame and stardom and the heaviness of a bandmate who is struggling with it all... Not only that, you will also have a ringside seat to Matt's own struggles with alcohol addiction, a unique tale but one which also resonates all too often among those in the spotlight... Thankfully Matt remained strong and is here to tell Pip the tale, so sit back and listen!
