Labba Labba from Labberish (unsure of spelling) = Gossip
Someone once asked Scratch about the possibility of the Black Ark being ressurrected and he said it was "all labberish straight from yard"

Hard to beat Lee Perry and Striker's combo tune 'Labrish'. So this is really Bunny Lee? - + does Lee call Bunny 'Pharoh' at the start of the song?

Love the end of the tune when Perry and Lee start chatin' this-and-that about other producers. Lots of chuckles, lots of labrish.

yes King, true the riddim name 'Bang Bang' but it is actually a relick of the old Bunny Lee standard 'Bangarang' :wink:
