DOWNLOAD: Lee "Scratch" Perry - Santa Claus (MP3)

Lee "Scratch" Perry @ Central Park Summerstage in July (more by Tim Griffin)
Lee Scratch Perry

Tickets are still on sale for Lee "Scratch" Perry's Highline Ballroom show on Sunday, December 13th (with Popo and Pace Won & Mr. Green). Lee's Narnack label-mates and fellow legends The Slits play the venue one night after (with The Sundelles and Sisters). I have a pair of tickets for each to give away; details are below.

The Lee Perry show is the kick-off for a one week US tour, the full dates of which are below with a very special video tour announcement from The Upsetter. "Santa Claus," a somewhat seasonal but not really very festive track from his 2008 Andrew WK-produced record Repentence (an album that Ari Up of The Slits makes a guest appearance on), is above.

Tour dates, video and contest info below...

"purple headed yogurt slinger" has nothing to do with race at all.

TXn--- i think youre the racist for assuming that is racist.

clearly its a reference to a dick, the only reason it would be purple is because it is engorged with blood. and if you dont get the yogurt part of it youre really dense.

while us men may all have different color skin, it is important to remember that down below we all have purple headed yogurt slingers.

ANON 11:19 & 11:21 -
Thanks for already assuming I am racist!

You are really breaking the stereotypes aren't you with thinking I am on a horse and wearing Cowboy Boots too, eh?
You guys are just so progressive.

I didn't even say the comment, but don't you agree that it is unnessecary?
You know it is and that is all that matters
and that is all I will say.

Eat some yogurt.

If you reply I will not...
since you automatically assume I am racist.

That guy's brain has been ravaged from crack cocaine.

Seriously Anon 1:47, has anyone seen this guy's live show recently? It is literally laughable...mumbling, incoherent nonsense, like someone was pulled out of a mental institution, handed a microphone and told to go out there and do their best. When he forgets words (which is about every 30-60 seconds, no joke) he yells out "Jah!!" or "Rastafari!!" or some other cliche reggae word.

That being said, the guy's a legend and I respect the shit out of him. He just really needs to stop playing live.

Thanks Drugs! For the heads up on live show.
What the hell was that video? A Commercial for a 'store' in San Fran or something?

"Here hold this one..... now, this one! Yeah, that's it....."
