Lee Scratch Perry remixes Forest Swords’ Thor’s Stone


Listen to legendary dub maestro Lee Scratch Perry remix of Forest Swords’ Engravings offering.

Forest Swords keeps good company.
Just days after announcing his support slot for post-rock icons Mogwai, the Wirral producer has unveiled a collaborative remix with legendary dub star Lee Scratch Perry. It is quite something.
Swords, aka Matthew Barnes, has also announced his biggest tour to date (see below).
Lee Scratch Perry played Liverpool’s Eric’s earlier this year, see Getintothis review and astounding picture gallery by John Johnson below.
