Lee “Scratch” Perry: Age 72


I saw Lee “Scratch” Perry at Amoeba Records a few months ago when he released his new album Repentance.  He was decked out with multi-colored jewelry and still rocking the red hair and beard, just as he did throughout his life as one of Jamaica’s most legendary producers.  I bought the album for $6.95, and as I was waiting in line for Scratch to sign it, I noticed in the liner notes that Andrew W.K. co-produced the album.  Instant confusion, instant party.  Let’s rock.

My favorite part is at 1:58.
