In bed with Pipecock Jackxon

Lee “Scratch” Perry continues to baffle me: everytime I think I have a reasonable grasp on his stupefying discography a new compilation/reissue rears it head. This time, it’s “The return of pipecock jackxon“. Presumably the last recordings he ever made in his Black Ark before destroying it(!) and finishing the album in Amsterdam. As of this week, the album is lovingly reissued on CD and LP by Honest Jons – check out the 11-minute opening track for a taste.
