"Rainford Hugh Perry, aka The Upsetter, aka President Abraham Parry, and most known as Lee 'Scratch' Perry with his full length for summer 2009! - Produced by Paul Zasky & Robbie Ost, and backed by outernational Austrian Dub-veterans Dubblestandard and featuring as main guest-singers Ari-Up (New Age Steppers, The Slits) and longtime friend Gudrun Liemberger. Two CD deluxe-digipak set comes also with the surprisingly and rare appearance by film director David Lynch, plus remixes by G-Corp, Rob Smith (both from the UK), and the US Subatomic Sound on the second disc. Extended Linernotes by David Katz (author of 'People Funny Boy: The Genius Of Lee Scratch Perry and Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae). Dubblestandard was formed in 1988 as a reaction to the stagnant Austrian pop scene, the group was heavily inspired by the sounds emanating from Lee 'Scratch' Perry's legendary dub space, the Black Ark, as well as Adrian Sherwood's pick-and-mix productions of the On-U Sound label, and pioneering sound system operator, Jah Shaka, infusing these dub influences within their own heady blend of hardcore reggae and new wave. It was way back in this late 80ties when it all started: Dubblestandard supported and backed Lee Perry while touring and over 20 years later one will experience the dub mothership finally reaching AND returnung from the Planet Dub, guided on autopilot by Dubblestandart's cavernous excursion into deep dub, chilling house and dubble-tough dubstep! Lee Perry (born March 20, 1936 in St. Mary's, Jamaica) and his dispense wisdom on various topics, including his magic genie: Musical wars and Natty's dread lock - Mister Rich and Mistress Bitch - blessed sh*t's voodoo, which takes the form of the rumbling bass lines that reach him when he sits on his toilet pit, plus the lowness of Hell and extreme heights of Heaven! He revisits all time classics such as 'Disco Devil' and 'Blackboard Jungle Dub' in a new dub form, while 'I Foo China' is reminisce"
