Sound System Scratch

Previously unreleased music from Lee Scratch Perry out Aug 30 on Pressure Sounds, preview it here.

"The exclusive mixes showcased on this release have never been heard before outside of sound system dances. Some will be familiar through their commercial incarnations such as ‘Bucky Skank’, ‘History’ and ‘Groovy Situation’ but here they have been pushed and pulled, coaxed and cajoled in hitherto unexplored and previously unimagined directions. This is music from a man coming to the end of his tether…

The album comes in a stark, striking black and white design with hitherto unseen photographs, archive material and an accompanying seven inch single ‘Dub Plate Pressure’. The version side, with the rhythm dubbed into oblivion, does not feature on the album and the single comes in its own heavyweight cardboard picture sleeve." More info over at Pressure Sounds.
