About this item

This 3 track EP from the legendary Lee Perry brings together new and unreleased tracks recorded at Mad Professor’s Ariwa Studio in South London. Loosely dedicated to everyone's favourite fantasy drama series (god knows why - such is the quirky madness of Scratch!), the EP kicks off with "This Is The Upsetter", which sees Lee chanting and philosophising over a rollicking bass, underpinned by understated guitars.

** Note upon listening to Perry's mystic and cryptic vocals I've come to the conclusion that it's not, as previously mentioned, 'Perry's quirky madness' that contributes to the EP's title but actually a very astute, if elusive, commentary on the current state of world politics. GOT might seem like a different world but the battles between the elite, peasants and the machiavellians are as real and as poignant as ever. 

STAFF COMMENTS
