Lee "Scratch" Perry: Town & Country Club, London

Push, Melody Maker, 3 October 1987

PRESIDENT Abraham Perry appears in full ceremonial dress. Long red socks, stars upon his breeches, fairy lights around his head, a mirror strapped to his back and something which looks like cat's whiskers hiding part of his face. He carries a torch in one hand and a microphone in the other. At one point he has an umbrella for a hat.
