The Bloody Beetroots Interview
BEATMASH MAGAZINE: In the review we made about the album, we felt it was more punker than your previous works. Do you think punk has had more weight than electronic on the record?
THE BLOODY BEETROOTS: I believe the punk element has always been present and solid in my records, it is perhaps a little more evident on TGES as there are some songs that show some singers «stolen» from that genre of music.
BM:The title “The Great Electronic Swindle” comes from the movie “The Great Rock ‘N’ Roll Swindle”, aboutSex Pistols.How much has Sex Pistols influenced in your music career? What about in this particular record?
BB: The influence of the sex pistols is certainly part of my career, this new record is a tribute but also a parallel social analysis of what happened back in their days and what is happening nowadays. The tumult and the sense of social unease have never been so comparative in the two historical periods, ours and theirs.
BM: Perry Farrell, from Jane’s Addiction, takes part in the record, in the song “Pirates Punk & Politics”. How did the collaboration come about?
BB: I met Perry several years ago in South America and we promised each other to collaborate as soon as possible. That moment came up at the beginning of 2017 and the flame that triggered the collaboration was loudly shouting our position on the political situation in the United States of America. I believe that every musician of today has the responsibility to change things through his own music. the song was our contribution to the fight.
BM: Is your record more political to date?
BB: I believe so
BM: What do you have prepared in your Live to present the album?
BB: We have prepared a mix of past and present and completely revised and rearranged the old songs to bring them to the level of new ones. it’s an explosive 80-minute show.
BM: You play many instruments, even electronic ones. How many instruments do u know play? Which one is the most you like?
BB: I play bass, guitar, keyboards and i sing. I love them all, they’re complementary to each other.
BM: If you had the Delorean from Back To The Future, where would you travel?
BB: I believe I would take a trip into the future to see if human beings will improve or get worse
BM: Which 3 electronic records are, for you, the best ever? What’s so special about it?
Prodigy – Fat of The Land
Chemical Brothers – Surrender
Kraftwerk – Trans Europe Express
I love to quote albums with historical content and in some way these 3 albums mentioned above have changed the history of music.
