The Scratch

From a Lee "Scratch" Perry interview recently in Giant Robot.

"I am a fish, so I get telepathic communication straight from the Seven Seas, straight from the raindrops, and straight from the toilet in my bathroom. You can get communication from your bathroom. Believe in your piss. Believe in your shit. If you did not get water to drink, you could not piss. And if you had no food to eat, you could not shit. So respect the shit and the piss. Your piss comes from the Seven Seas, and your shit from the bottomless pit of stink. The piss will tell you what you need to know, and the shit will tell you what you need to hear with telepathic communication. You have to be open."

I already loved the music. Now, I idolize the man. Mr. Perry, you have my vote.
