Pirate Jet

Album: Plastic Beach (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • Bassist Murdox explained: "'Pirate Jet' takes the album out swinging, a finale with shuddering jazz hands: "Did you like the show? It was called PLANET EARTH". We're finished and now everyone's evolved into plastic. A new breed of human." He added: "I want to clear this up. Plastic Beach. It's not a green record. It's not a judgement on the world. It's just a picture. Plastic Beach: its another place, another way of looking at the world. And this is its soundtrack."
