It's not just Perry's music that inspires people, but his sensibility: the restless urge to experiment with the possibilities of production and to explore the outer limits of sound. The Bug and Perry are both set to play Greek mini-festival Winter Plisskën this week. The Bug: "Having blindly purchased a random Lee Perry compilation when I was a teenager, this insane track burst out of my speakers like a transmission from some parallel, mental universe, where nursery rhyme melodies, a bovine choir, and psychedelic percussion attacked my sanity brilliantly. I was smitten from then onwards. 06. Lee Perry Soul Fire. The Bug: "I was obsessed with this track, so much so that I even cribbed the title for a track on my first album, by my band GOD. The mixture of lyrical angst, hypnotic percussion, and swirling, phased melodies sucked me into this Jamaican voodoo. I never get tired of this track.
Lee "Scratch" Perry performs in London. Philip Ryalls/Redferns. Just before dawn, in the garage of his mansion, set high above a medieval village in the Swiss Alps, Lee Scratch Perry balances precariously on the top step of a ladder and spray paints an abstract self-portrait. Perry laughs, looking up and down at his blond wife’s voluptuous body spilling out of her designer dress. Like a Swiss Zsa Zsa Gabor, the 50-year-old beauty puckers up and lays a wet one on her husband. For the past 15 years, Perry has been living here in a tiny village just outside Zurich, with Mireille and their two children. Scratch just said, ‘The album is called Super Ape, and so I need a Super Tape!’ He is a wizard, there is nobody else like him. In 1976, as political turmoil erupted in Jamaica, Perry produced the classics War Ina Babylon with Max Romeo and Police and Thieves with Junior Murvin.

I met Lee Perry one day. He was playing in town that same night and he walked past the record shop where I worked, the afternoon before the show. We had a poster in the window for his gig and he stopped to look at it. Wasting no time I ran over to him and asked him for an autograph. I should've got the poster signed but wasn't thinking that quickly. Just amazed to see him in his all-black garb with mirrors and broken cds all over. I thanked him, called him a genius, and he walked off up the street. Pretty soon he walked back the other way, stopped in the shop doorway and gave me a big smile. What a guy. All this without a word too ha ha! He doesn't sign many autographs so I've heard. I was pleased to get this.
