The Bloody¬†Beetroots (Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo) doesn’t just want to entertain audiences; he strives to engage and challenge them, emotionally and intellectually; to share stories with them. Changes in his personal life and the world, in general, have inspired him to speak with increasing openness-and listen attentively to the words and ideas of others as well. Language-in all its gravity and fluidity-plays a pivotal role on the album ‘The Great Electronic Swindle’ due out October 20 on Last Gang Records. If you Pre-order the album now and also receive four album tracks: the two versions of “My Name Is Thunder,” plus “Saint Bass City Rockers” and “Pirates Punks & Politics.”

The artistic evolution of The Bloody¬†Beetroots has enabled one of electronic music’s most engaging producers and songwriters to work more closely with a diverse array of artists. The Bloody¬†Beetroots has revealed the new album single “Pirates, Punks & Politics” featuring Perry Farrell. For the song which premiered via the U.K.’s BBC Radio 1 Dan Carter show, Rifo chose the modern rock innovator and legendary Jane’s Addiction vocalist, and reunited him with superstar drummer Tommy Lee to write and record this timely, politically charged musical manifesto.
