Track Listing / Description

We have acquired a limited number of this 1990 magazine written by David Katz and the late Hank Targowski in which the pair attempted to chronicle Lee Perry's life and art.  As far as we know there never ever was an issue two, though ultimately Katz went on to write the definitive book on the subject with his brilliant People Funny Boy.  Meanwhile, back in 1990 this slight pamphlet was as deep as it got, examining Perry's early years in the sixties as an artist and as a mover and shaker at Clement Dodd's Studio One setup in detail.  The centre pages depict four Perry Postcards, though you'd have to cut them out to use them, as well as an example of Perry marker pen art.  There is an early discography up to the year 1968 when he actually recorded People Funny Boy, while Scratch himself penned the "Hot News" that takes up three pages of standard Perry hyperbole at the back, fittingly, these pages are intentionally printed upside down.  

Paperback A4 size 23 pages.
