If you ever heard the Beastie Boys track Sure Shot then you mighta heard Ad Rock rhyme the verse "I'm Like Lee Perry, I'm Very...On... Rock The Microphone and then I'm Gone" and if you know anything about Beastie name drops, you know they drops good names...
Below is a picture of Mr. Lee "Scratch" Perry circa 1976
Lee "Scratch" Perry is the undisputed Godfather of Dub music. It's said that his recording/mixing methods caused the creation of reggae, but the verdict is out on that... I think inventing Dub music is by far a huge deal anyway... who can confidently claim inventing reggae?
Perry has been chosen by Animal Collective to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival that they're in charge of curating this year.
Lee 'Scratch" Perry & The Upsetters Tell me Something Good from the album "Return of the Super Ape" released in 1978. SO CRISPY! SO CLASSIC!
