Coachella Day One: No Sad Sacs

Scro_2 They came. They saw. They performed. They left. In the midst of their U.K. tour, Dan Le Sac v. Scroobius Pip had a three-day chunk of free time to fly over to perform at day one of Coachella before heading back home. "We couldn't say no to Coachella," Pip said a few hours before the duo took to the Gobi stage for their one-hour set. (Dan admitted he'd never heard of the festival until they were booked to perform. "I'm really pleased," he said.)

Over at the Gobi, they converted the crowd to their "break beat poetry," with followers holding up paper fans featuring Pip's signature beard. "There's loads of half of me," Pip said looking out at the crowd before getting a shot of them with his camera. As Dan swigged beer and puffed on a cigarette behind his Mac laptop, Pip was all business, sitting authoritatively behind a desk, talking into a mic and digging through a briefcase of notes. Reading from a Bible, he paced the stage and spewed out his own commandments for their breakout song, "Thou Shalt Always Kill," switching out Brit comedian Stephen Fry in one verse and telling the crowd, "Thou Shalt Not Question Mitch Hedberg."  They finished up by paying a little homage to Prince with their own version of the titillating "Cream."
