The Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 is simultaneously the most ridiculous, awesome and insane name for a “band” ever. Here’s how it goes: Bloody Beetroots is the pseudonym of Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Bloody Beetroots DJ Set is Rifo with DJ Tommy Tea on effects. Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 is what happens when the two of them are joined on stage by drummer Jacopo Battaglia (a.k.a. Battle). Describing a BBDC77 (even abbreviated it’s long) performance as an event where all hell breaks loose is like describing a Chicago Winter as cold.
Performing in what is best described as Venom masks from Spider-Man (while frequently indulging in cancer sticks no less), Bloody Beetroots Death Crew 77 (we’re going to just go with Death Crew 77 from now on) defies convention when it comes to modern electronic music. The combination of synth beats and samples with vocals more frequently found in traditional, classic punk rock (The Sex Pistols, not that shit that passes for punk these days), Death Crew 77 is produced, smoothed and perfectly executed – without losing the grittiness that makes it so damn excellent. With video production quality that borders on Tarantino-esque, the live show is not to be missed, and something you should put in your Lolla lineup immediately.
