Lee “Scratch” Perry’s illuminating “Psalm”

Lee “Scratch” Perry – “Psalm” mp3

While Lee “Scratch” Perry is a name synonymous with dub, and for that matter every stage of Jamaican music over the last sixty years, I also have a particular appreciation for his vocal style. He’s so funny, and has a way of being reverent and irreverent at the same time. Here we find Madman Scratchy in fine form, chanting a “Psalm” like no other – dropping names and images from popular culture, scriptures, songs, nature, politics and freakin’ comic books – weaving it all into a picture of the world that no one else could conjure. Unique and brilliant.
