[EVENT] LEE SCRATCH PERRY @ VILLAGE UNDERGROUND: 5TH MARCH

Soundcrash are excited to announce that reggae legend Lee Scratch Perry will be performing live at Village Underground on 5 March.

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 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 pivotal releases of the 1980’s.

One of reggae’s undisputed pioneers, Lee “the Upsetter” Perry has worked with almost everyone from the Heptones to the Skatalites to The Clash. Certainly one of his most notable contributions was the pairing of Bob Marley, to Peter Tosh, and Bunny Wailer with the Barnet Brothers (Carley and ‘Familyman’ who had been the heart of the Perry’s group, the Upsetters) and thus the forming of the Bob Marley and the Wailers.

Soundcrash have packed in a heavy-weight lineup for this special night, featuring Reggae Roast and Brother Sage, Resonators and Kioko, and the full Reggae Roast Soundsystem.

Tickets to see this musical heavyweight sold out Electric Brixton in 2016, and are sure to be snapped up fast again.
