Lee Perry And The White Belly Rats Panic in Babylon
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Moll-Selekta
While somewhat obscure, Lee Perry‘s recent collaborations with Mad Professor on his London-based Ariwa Sounds have produced some of the Upsetter‘s most compelling tracks since the ‘70s. This spotty collaboration with New York City‘s White Belly Rats isn‘t as inspiring, but, as with any Perry release, it has moments of sheer genius. The Rats‘ often rock-influenced dub creations make for an odd if relatively soulless foundation, but Lee is as on as ever, putting hexes on George Bush and Chris Blackwell, and on more than one track. "Have a Perry salad/For this is Perry ballad."
