#1: Lee Perry | The Return of the Megamen

“The Return Of The Megamen” prima puntata di DUB&CULTURE dedicata al mito vivente originatore del dub Lee Scratch Perry. Impossibile o superfluo elencare gli artisti da lui creati e che da lui hanno preso ispirazione e insegnamenti, da Bob Marley ai The Clash, da Beastie Boys ai Killing Joke, da Keith Richard a Peter Tosh, da Mad Professor ai Dubblestandart passando per Adrian Sherwood e la On-U Sound… solo per nominarne alcuni e ovviamente migliaia di artisti e produzioni da lui scaturite, parti fondamentali della musica giamaicana, ska, reggae e dub.
