NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #282 ~ 09-04-21]

Pictured: Lee “Scratch” Perry, the Upsetter. R.I.P..

As Steve Barrow notes, as much as the early Upsetters LPs had paved the way for dub, the Black Ark never became a center for dub in the same way that Tubby’s did. Unlike King Tubby, whose forte was mainly versioning the music of many different producers who left their tapes to be remixed, [Lee] Perry was involved in his own music at all levels, from the creation of the music itself, to the recording of it, and onto the remix stage. This is not to imply that Perry was less committed to dub as a form that the others; he merely took a different approach that probably went some way toward reconciling his creative eccentricity with commercial necessity. Where King Tubby’s deconstructions were generally and pragmatically confined to B-sides of singles, Perry often produced his A-side vocal cuts as otherworldly landscapes as surreal and spaced-out as Tubby’s most unconventional dub work. It was through this method of working that he created three of his most enduring contributions to dub music and earned him his legendary status as a studio innovator.
