Anyone with a passing interest in music will have heard Bob Marley but anyone with a little more than a passing interest will be familiar with Lee Perry also known as 'Scratch' or 'The Upsetter'. Now better known as a 'performance artist' his antics and acrobatics on the international festival circuit have gained him a committed following eager to see what Lee 'Scratch' Perry, now in his eighties, will dare to get up to next. However, throughout the sixties and seventies Scratch was the production genius behind some of the greatest, most complex, and seriously experimental music to ever come out of Jamaica... or anywhere else for that matter. He has made an indelible, incredible contribution to the development of reggae music as a producer, arranger, writer and (occasionally) singer and has been the inspiration behind innumerable developments in the genre.In 1968 Scratch's production of 'Tighten Up' with The Untouchables gave the name to Trojan Records' hugely popular series of albums which were instrumental in crossing over the sound of real reggae to the mainstream audience. The following year the scintillating Upsetters instrumental Return Of Django reached Number Five in the UK National Charts. His work with Bob Marley & The Wailers in the early seventies, rated by many cognoscenti as the trio's strongest recordings, emphasised the deeper roots elements in their music and, paradoxically, paved the way for Bob Marley's commercial crossover success later in the decade. His collaborations with King Tubby in 1973 culminated in 'Upsetters 14 Dub Black Board Jungle', one of the very first and perhaps the best ever dub album. Scratch's production of Susan Cadogan's interpretation of Millie Jackson's version of Katie Love's It Hurts So Good reached Number Four in the UK National Charts in 1975... the list goes on.
