(Saville Factor: 2)
It seems SO wrong, and yet somehow so right: Lee “Scratch” Perry has done a Christmas song. It’s called Santa Claus. It’s sort of a trancehall thing. And he says “Walt Disney… Mickey Mouse… Monkey in the sky” quite a lot.
On first listen it sounds suspiciously like the ravings of a man who has completely lost touch with reality. But given his track record as a visionary genius, chances are that before too long this tune will have completely replaced the Christmas carol, and The Upsetter himself will be single-handedly delivering presents to all the world’s children. Personally, I can’t wait.
