Back to the ArkSeptember 28, 2019 Lee Perry and friends deliver another handsome box set.Although I have mixed feelings about Record Store Day, it's hard to fault this set of 12' singles from Daniel Boyle's Upsetter records. Back To The Ark is a terrific showcase of vocals and dubs that gathers together the impressive talent of Congo Ashanti Roy, Sylford Walker, Dennis Bovell, Vin Gordon, and – of course – Lee Perry.Each single includes a vocal track plus dub on the A-side, and the B-sides feature Lee Perry on vocals plus another dub, each mixed by Scratch. Highlights include Danny Red's 'World Crisis' and Congo Ashanti Roy's 'Ruff It Ruff', both sounding like they could have been vintage Upsetter or Black Art singles from the 1970s (in mood, not in production style). Scratch is his usual playful and eccentric self on the B-sides, but the A-side singers are the real attraction here.Of course, the set sold out during Record Store Day in April, but many are still available on or elsewhere. A bit pricey, but a nice collector's set and another cool snapshot of the Upsetter in his twilight years.Nice new waxApril 27, 2019 Some crucial Scratch tunes are back on vinyl and in a handsome box set.With the CD format slowly but surely dying, it's nice to see new collector's sets being pressed on vinyl. Trojan has just announced box set, a nice collection of 10 singles from 1968.
Although the choice of tunes isn't particularly inspired (most if not all have been released on previous Trojan collections), the set looks nicely crafted and certainly serious collectors will want to get their hands on this one.And if you can't afford original Black Art records, continue to release some Lee Perry gems on crisp new 7' singles. Their latest platters include by Lloyd and Devon, by Errol Walker, and by Leo Graham.

Mistakes have been corrected, and broken links have been fixed.At the moment, there are no new Lee Perry collections being released, but there is an on the way for Record Store Day 2019 featuring new vocal tracks from Scratch and friends on top of vintage Black Ark rhythms. Featuring Dennis Bovell, Congo Ashanti Roy, and Sylford Walker, this set looks upsetting indeed.March 20 is the Upsetter's 83 birthday, and he shows no signs of slowing down. Long may he rave!

Welcome to the new Eternal Thunder.Okay, okay, let's take it from here. It's strange to think that this web site has been part of my life for more than 20 years now.
Eternal Thunder first went online as Soundzs From The Hotline in 1996 – crude in both content and design in the early days of the internet. Over the years, as my knowledge of both Lee Perry's music and web design got better, I faithfully updated Eternal Thunder regularly and added a lot of new content. In 2006, after a long period of inactivity, I pretty much rebuilt every pixel of Eternal Thunder. That foundation is still solid, and so this latest redevelopment is mainly about modernizing the web site's code, along with some new content, improved graphics, and a cleaner look. So what's new in the 2018 Eternal Thunder?The has been brought as up to date as possible, including the most recent Perry collections and 7' singles from Pressure Sounds and Reggae Fever's mighty catalogues. A listing of US and Canadian singles has also been added, something that is long overdue.
Also overdue is a search function to hopefully make discography entries easier to find. Some of my favourite singles have been annotated with information and sound samples.Revisiting the was interesting, as we are certainly living in an era of shifting sands when it comes to collecting music. I originally created the Eternal Thunder discography in the 1990s, just as record labels were starting to re-release a lot of Lee Perry's material on CD. At the time, I had no solid information on the hundreds of singles and LPs that were out there in vinyl oblivion, so such a listing never even occurred to me. 20 years later, the CD is moving towards extinction, and – in some cases – certain discs are now almost as rare as records from the 1970s! (A copy of Blood & Fire's Jesus Dread set now sells for anywhere between $80 and $200 on Amazon.)It seems strange to be nostalgic for the 2000s, but the terrific flood of Lee Perry material from that time has now slowed to a trickle, with Pressure Sounds' series of Scratch collections being the only game in town.
May 03, 2017 How to import DWG files to Blender? An architectural visualization artist working with Blender will eventually have to deal with several types of file formats, and among those files, you will find the DWG. That is the format that AutoCAD saves their files and gives headaches to lots of people. Autocad download free software. The solution? Keep both SketchUp 8 and 7 installed on your computer. With the free version of SketchUp 7, we can import DWG files using a plugin developed by Google itself. Today, we still can download SketchUp 7 at this link, even with the label saying it is the Pro version, after 8 hours it will turn automatically into the free version. Feb 11, 2018 In the line of the previous post I'm going to continue to show how to import various file formats into Blender. In this case I'm going to talk about the most common that an Arch-Viz artist can receive from clients. It's the DWG from AutoCad, that usually. Autodesk App Store is a marketplace and a web service provided by Autodesk that makes it easy to find and acquire third-party plugin extensions, other companion applications, content and learning materials for AutoCAD Plant 3D. You can find the most up to date apps for AutoCAD Plant 3D. Jan 10, 2014 Paul Kotelevets maintains the Autocad/Intellicad to Blender exporter. The LISP plugin specifically supports exporting of '2D linear data' to OBJ files, which can then be read in to Blender. Paul just released version 3.0.3 - full details (which contain a lot of Autocad lingo that I just fail to understand;-) can be found overRead More.
As we move into the, I'm curious as to how people are going to find, discover and collect Lee Perry's music over the next decade. I'll do my best to keep the discography up to date.– the magazine section of Eternal Thunder – has been completely revamped.
This is where you can find many in-depth articles on Lee Perry and his music. Over the years, I've been able to, analyze some of Scratch's, delve into some, and with the magazine. I've also included some from the 1970s that are fascinating to read, since they come from a time when Lee Perry's music was still new. I hope to add more articles to Upsetting Station in the future.Although I have no plans to produce any new episodes, I'm very proud of the podcasts.
Lee Scratch Perry Discography
From 2006 - 2009, I produced more than 30 episodes of Radio Scratch that chronicled almost every aspect of Lee Perry's career, from his earliest ska numbers to his deepest Black Ark material and his eccentric modern works.Finally, my apologies to anyone viewing this site on a mobile device, as it has not been optimized for mobile viewing. Due to the size of the web site and the volume of information contained within, it might very well be another 10 years before I get around to figuring that out! And if you see any broken links or other errors, pleaseEnjoy the new Eternal Thunder.The Black AlbumOctober 20, 2018 Lee Perry and Daniel Boyle join forces again for another excellent album.For many years, the quality of Lee Perry's recorded output has largely depended on who he's working with. Happily, over the past decade Scratch has managed to find talented collaborators such as Subatomic Sound System, Pura Vida, and the White Belly Rats who have provided a solid foundation for the Upsetter's one-of-a-kind ravings.
At the top of this short list of valued collaborators is UK producer Daniel Boyle, whose first album with Perry, Back On The Controls, was a massive success on many fronts. Featuring a deep and sprawling mood, the album featured excellent musicianship guided by Boyle's expertise in the producer's chair. Four years later, Scratch and Boyle are back with The Black Album.Rather than knock you out like the sprawling and dread vibes of Back On The Controls, Black Album turns things down a notch. Boyle once again assembled a mighty set of session musicians and crucial analogue equipment to create the right vibe for the Upsetter, who muses on outer space, the dangers of eating meat, Kingston rude boys, and black shadows. Scratch is both focused and playful on Black Album, and with some imagination, you could imagine this set as something Perry might have recorded in the early 1980s. The inclusion of dubs for every track is a great bonus, as they nicely extend the vibes of each song and take the mood of Black Album to higher heights.It's an album that reveals more details with each listen, especially in the crisp and spacious dub tracks.
Another high point in Scratch's modern career.Sell me something goodDecember 12, 2017 In Eternal Thunder's, you will find a comprehensive listing of all of the dubious and misleading Lee Perry collections that have been around since the 1990s.These bogus CD releases range from low quality collections of actual Scratch productions to music that has absolutely nothing to do with Lee Perry. Thankfully, over the years most of these titles have faded from sight, but you still see a few of them now and again.As I work on the redevelopment of Eternal Thunder, I was amazed to discover that bogus Scratch collections are alive and well in the 21st century. I would have thought that bootleggers would have given up this trickery in the MP3 era and found other ways to rip people off, but guess again! Currently Amazon lists more than a dozen digital collections which are mainly of material from Return of the Super Ape as well as that have no Lee Perry connection. And then there are some and digital releases that are best left in the dark corners of Amazon cyberspace.Of course, there's a big difference between bootlegs in 1997 and 2017 – now you can listen to these releases before you buy them. Hopefully any discerning Lee Perry fan will check out the audio samples and know that most of this music is available from more legitimate sources or realize that the tunes are not Perry productions.Soon comeSeptember 18, 2017 As reported earlier, I've been slowly but surely working on a major overhaul to Eternal Thunder.
It's a huge task, and the work can be tedious.Also, life and other hobbies often have a way of making sitting in front of a computer chopping out HTML code seem a little dull.
