“Pirates, Punks & Politics” New Single ft Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction) From The Bloody Beetroots

The artistic evolution of THE BLOODY BEETROOTS (Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo) has enabled one of electronic music’s most engaging producers and songwriters to work more closely with a diverse array of artists.  Available now is THE BLOODY BEETROOTS new single “Pirates, Punks & Politics” featuring Perry Farrell.  For the song, which appears on THE BLOODY BEETROOTS new album The Great Electronic Swindle (Last Gang Records) due out October 20, 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.

Pirates Punks & Politics

Ask me any simple question

I’m an information contradiction

Ask me any simple question

I’ll bash you with my fiction diction

Pirate Punk Politician

I got you in a bad position

Pirate Punk Politician

I don’t need nobody’s permission

Split your country down the middle

Break out your old banjos and fiddles

Disconnect all the angels souls

Gather up now lets GO

Pirate Punk Politician

I got you in a bad position

Pirate Punk Politician

I don’t need nobody’s permission

Stood you up now with a wink

Got you all to double think

I’ll cut your job I’ll raise your rent

Cause I’m your so called president

Pirate Punk Politician

I got you in a bad position

Pirate Punk Politician

I don’t need nobody’s permission

THE BLOODY BEETROOTS is the moniker of artist, producer and mastermind Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo who celebrates his 10-year anniversary in 2017. Born in Bassano Del Grappa, Italy, Rifo was inspired by a lifelong love of comic books and punk rock, which comprise the visceral kick of THE BLOODY BEETROOTS’ sound.   THE BLOODY BEETROOTS’ discography includes a string of successful EPs and two full length albums including 2009’s Romborama and 2013’s Hide, which featured collaborations with Sir Paul McCartney, Steve Aoki, Tommy Lee, Dennis Lyxzen of Refused, P-Thugg of Chromeo, Theophilus London, Youth and guitar legend Peter Frampton. Always clad in a mask and leather, Rifo conceals his identity as he rocks international audiences from intimate clubs to festival stages.
