Pip is going to Europe and Pip is going to act so weird.
Pip is playing with the Greg Macpherson band. They played at that Plugin gallery opening, but you missed it/couldn't see or hear them.
Who will look after Pip's cat while he's gone? Cass? Probably.
Greg and his band have been working really hard on playing Pip's songs and they sound great.
Rob Crooks is a talented rapper and songwriter who appears on Pip's latest album, Skid Row.
Gruf is Gruf. Act like you know.
Co-op and Hunnicutt are really old, but super nice dudes.
Actual Pip Bio:
Pip Skid is the ugly truth. He is a rap firebrand whose music transcends its humble prairie origins. His unvarnished commentary on political and social issues has earned him pockets of admirers all over the world. His songs are propelled by imagery and messages that provoke people to question, think, and act. Pip Skid can be repulsive, he can be inspiring, but he can never be dull.
Far from a newcomer, Pip Skid has been writing and performing for half his life. Starting out with the seminal group Farm Fresh from his native Brandon, Manitoba, Pip was at the forefront of a burgeoning hip hop scene in central Canada in the early 1990's. He is a cornerstone of the success of indie label Peanuts & Corn Records and has featured on many of their 40 releases.
