Lee Perry: Scratchin' Round the Xmas Tree


Lee "Scratch" Perry - Santa Claus

So stoked! Just got the unlikeliest of presents in my inbox. A Lee "Scratch" Perry song for me to drop here On the Beat. It's off the Grammy-nominated "Repetance" album and it's got all types of Christmas spirit to it. Something tell us, Mr. Perry isn't much of a Baby Jesus fan. Wanted to also get the word out that Bob Marley's former recording buddy is hitting New York's Highline Ballroom on Dec. 13. The Eagles play the Giants that night, so On the Beat will be in front of his tube expecting another G-woman stomp. Should be an awesome show ... and hopefully Lee keeps his pants on, because it's going to be cold that day for sure.
