Lee Scratch Perry On The Wire 1987

I have former Better Badges designer Derek Harris to thank for this one. He later got involved in making t-shirts for On-U Sound and forwarded me this tape back in 1987. Lee Perry, after 40 days and nights in the wilderness, had finally returned to the fold by hooking up with Adrian Sherwood and recording an album ‘Time Boom X The Devil Dead’. The both of them then duly traveled up North to join Steve Barker on his BBC Radio Lancashire radio program On The Wire (which recently celebrated its 25th Anniversary – Congrats Steve!) to premiere the new tracks. This tape is an edited version of this historic show – originally broadcast March 1 1987.
