Roast Fish, Collie Weed and… Mince Pies

(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.

You’re probably gonna get sick of me banging on about how good Bullion is, but there’s really nothing I can do about that so you should probably just get used to it.

Here’s why: taking a break from being a sick-like-swine-flu producer of Low End Theory style blip-hop, he’s just released another (free) mix on the internet with like Joni Mitchell and ELO and shit on it. Sunday morning business.
