Last Sunday night I had the honor of interviewing Lee â€œScratchâ€ Perry, after his show at the Independent in San Francisco. The Upsetter, the Grand Daddy of Dub, Reggae, and Rock Steady played a mesmerizing show, backed by Dub is a Weapon, whose members are all about half a century younger than the 71 year old Perry who took the stage looking like a cross between Liberace and a chandelier. He finsihed his two hour show by saying “Welcome to the end of a very good day.”
Check out his most recent album â€œPanic in Babylonâ€ for some amazing dub from the dub master.
Power, power, power.
