The tour now includes:

  • 30 Mar - Band On The Wall, Manchester
  • 31 Mar - Band On The Wall, Manchester
  • 01 Apr - Jazz Café, London
  • 02 Apr - Jazz Café, London
  • 03 Apr - Sub89, Reading

Last year PERRY put his Back On The Controls album out on the Upsetter label.

Producer Daniel Boyle recreated the original set up of Black Ark studios by collecting all the original equipment used by PERRY back in the day, and rebuilding Black Ark in his own London studio.

Hearing of this, PERRY couldn’t resist a visit to London, and the resulting sessions that reunited the Upsetter with his original recording set-up was the blueprint for this brand new album project.

It has since been nominated for a Grammy award.
