Lee 'Scratch' Perry

June 30, 2008

Music

 

As a songwriter, performer and especially a producer, Perry has been at the forefront of reggae music since the late 50's ska movement. Practically the inventor of both dubs reggae (he produced one of the earliest all-dub albums, Blackboard Jungle, in 1974) and the “scratch” turntable effect used by DJ’s (his production of Charlie Ace’s “Cow Theory Skank” in 1973 became the first recording to use the effect), Perry’s studio innovations have influenced reggae, rock, punk, pop and dance music. Now, at 70 years old, Perry will release his new album “Panic In Babylon” (Narnack), and prove to be more relevant than ever.
