Elec­tro-rock col­lab­o­ra­tor’s hits and misses.

Most peo­ple know him as Sir Bob Cor­nelius Rifo, the wrestling maskwear­ing mu­sic pro­ducer with a lot of im­pres­sive star names in his phone book, or if they don’t know him they will soon.

Much like Mark Ron­son has got ahead by rid­ing on the back of/work­ing with some stel­lar tal­ent, Sir Bob’s lat­est al­bum rounds up the great and the good from the rock and elec­tronic worlds to cre­ate an al­bum that rises and falls like the most os­ten­ta­tious roller-coaster in the theme park.

There’s no deny­ing Bob’s vi­sion, though, which is grand, epic, with no mu­si­cal stone left un­turned. He’s fre­netic and ram­bunc­tious (with the help of Perry Far­rell) on the punky Pi­rates, Punks & Pol­i­tics, Foxy Shazam’s Eric Nally brings his pop notes to the party banger (it re­ally is) Into The Void, while Noth­ing But Love is a soul­ful, elec­tri­fied serenade brought to life by Ri­val Sons’ Jay Buchanan.
