About a third of the way through the second disc, a customer wandered over and enquired who the singer of the current song was. I told him that it was the great Lee Perry performing 'Heads of Government' and asked him what he thought of it. 'I've never heard anyone sound so totally exasperated and pissed off in my life' he said!
He was right of course. Scratch screams and rants his way though an utterly compelling performance like a man possessed. It's a tune I still reach for to this day, everytime some jumped up nincompoop in power says or does something ridiculous - so it's on pretty heavy rotation here at chez Swede as you can imagine.
Enjoy your weekend and, to quote Scratch, 'Don't let anyone rule your mind.'
