Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry Lights Up Loop

At Loop 2016, The Wire magazine’s Frances Morgan sat down for a wide-ranging, philosophical conversation with Jamaican dub pioneer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.The interview was one of the most unusual discussions at Loop 2016, with Morgan valiantly trying to keep the discussion on track and Perry constantly taking things in unanticipated directions.

Along for the ride were Perry’s live musical director Emch and Volker Schaner, director of the documentary film Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision Of Paradise.
