Pressed on translucent red vinyl.

One of a series of one-off remote collaborations captained by Lee "Scratch" Perry in response to pandemic travel and performance shutdowns in the Fall of 2020, just prior to escaping Europe for his native Jamaica at the turn of the year. These tracks unite musicians from France, Switzerland, and Washington, DC.

The source tunes came from dusty Tascam tapes of smoky 1990's basement sessions led by Andrei Soloviev--bandleader of DC's long-lived new-wave-Go-Go-jam-band Circus Mind.

For this release, those tunes are lovingly rebuilt from the ground up by Scratch and his European and American friends, and given the dubwise treatment by Perry himself. Even at age 85, the Upsetter offered these moments of brightness ina dark time.
