This thread is so classic soapbox :D

A huge loss off incredible talent. Shame on me really for never seeing him live, he must have performed in TCOTU at least 3 times a year. Yet I'd always wait for a convenient gig & when one would come I'd already have something else planned.

There are a lot of Scratch Perry tributes floating around online, but for a solid idea of what he was like in later life, as well as being packed full of great music recommendations, you should all read this 2010 feature:

Choice quote:

Perry battles against this enforced domestication, and every so often, he defecates in champagne glasses, placing them in cabinets throughout the house or burying them in the backyard. He justifies this habit by explaining that shit and piss are the essence of humanity: “The rain holds the sky, the rain goes in the water, we swim in the water, we piss in the water, and we drink the water. To live, we must piss and shit the water out. I believe in my piss. I believe in my shit.”
