I think I've just read two mindless narrow minded comments )

Scratch has always been a bit provokative, even back in the 1970s:

The original Upsetter - I am glad he still provokes and upsets (some) people )))

That video (and album with Andrew WK) marks a low point in Scratch's career. More stupid than provocative.

I've never heard the whole album but I still find this particular tune (and video 2) a bit provocative.

Surely it's a lot more narrow minded to assume that just because someone was once great then everything they do (many years) after that must also be great?

Agreed, Peter! As much as I love Scratch and his music, I do concede that these days he's more well known for his kooky outfits and eccentric behavior than for his music. I wonder how many neophyte reggae fans go to see Scratch live or listen to that album he did with The Orb, knowing that he's legendary, expecting something brilliant and then wondering "This guy? Really?" :lol: I certainly respect Scratch for following his muse and continuing to make music, but I think quality control has been low on Scratch's list of priorities.
