Lee Scratch Perry

Monroe's Live, Galway

Friday March 23rd 2018

Doors 8pm / Tickets €25 from www.monroes.ie or www.ticketmaster.ie

Regarded with awe throughout the music world Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time. From his early days in Kingston Jamaica through to his production of some Wailers classics and lots more, Perry’s innovative style marks him out as one of Reggaes true originals. He’s worked with everyone form The Skatalites to The Clash and he can even be credited with pairing Peter Tosh with Bob Marley and The Wailers. 

 

Sometimes credited with the invention of DUB his groundbreaking use of sound effects, echo reverb and rewind added a new dimension to Reggae. With thumping Bass and a tight knit backing band his live shows contain Bass heavy versions of classics such as “War Ina Babylon” “Chase the Devil” and even a lively version of “Exodus”. At the grand old age of 81 Lee “the Upsetter” Perry is still going strong, still touring Europe and beyond.  Indeed he’s celebrating his 82nd birthday this time around. His Irish shows last year we’re all sell-outs this coming March should be no different.

    Dub

    From his early days in the 1960’s as a singer and engineer for Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One in Kingston, through his production of the seminal Wailers’ classics African Herbsman and Soul Revolution, Perry’s innovative style marks him as one of reggae’s original treasures. His on the edge creative genius remains evident in his own solo albums of the 1970’s through his steady stream of mind-boggling releases of the 1980’s.

    Always one to follow the beat of his own drummers, the eccentric genius Perry continues to break new ground with the hardest rebel Rasta tunes and the most unpredictable instrumental dubs. Lee Perry has most recently been touring Europe, riveting both old and new fans with a full measure of his blessings.

    The “Upsetter” charges forward making music that recalls African roots, at the same time, it reaches for the vastness of the outer space.

    Lee is perhaps the only 80 + year old that can dance on one leg for 1 hour straight!
