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. The EP kicks of with ‘This Is The Upsetter’, which sees Lee chanting and philosophising over a rollicking bass, underpinned by understated guitar and perfectly placed hats, and continues to the straight up dub, ‘Lion Share Dub’. And on the flipside is the title track, ‘Game Of The Throne’, with brass section and backing vocals belting out soul fire, with Lee offering his words to Selassie. Mastered by the legendary Noel Summerville, artwork by Henry DubRoot Alderson and G.S-L Studio.
Biog: Some call him a genius, others claim he's certifiably insane, a madman. Truth is, he's both, but more importantly, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry is a towering figure in reggae - a producer, mixer, and songwriter who, along with King Tubby, helped shape the sound of dub and made reggae music such a powerful part of the pop music world. Along with producing some of the most influential acts (Bob Marley & the Wailers and the Congos to name but two) in reggae history, Perry's approach to production and dub mixing was breathtakingly innovative and audacious - no one else sounds like him - and while many claim that King Tubby invented dub, there are just as many who would argue that no one experimented with it or took it further than did Lee Perry.
“The Jamaican legend kickstarted Bob Marley’s career, has worked with everyone from Paul McCartney to John Martyn to the Clash, and has racked up countless records as both artist and producer.” [Dave Simpson, The Guardian]
