Lee "Scratch" Perry & The Upsetters

Super Ape

№ 31
July 2015

We were crazy back then man, yeah, but we were really something else. We kept a bottle of oblivion on the lowest kitchen shelf. We filled the emptiness with us instead of the other way around, and had some ancient astronauts move closer into town.

It was madness man yeah yeah but trust me it was worth it. We pulled our deepest rhythms from the islands where the world ends. We tied ourselves a crown of thorns and danced across the square. We humbled up to ecstasy and grew out all our hair.

We were kings and queens of everything, we even found our faces. We learned our higher eloquence and turned to constellations.
