Pop Quiz: Clue Are You?


You know him! You do - well his name anyway. But who is he?
A couple of pointers for you...

He's a non-music biz contributor to pop culture.

Born in Brighton, died in 1987.

And a hint expressed through the medium of Lee Perry

The Bleechers - Check Him Out

*puts hand up* I know sir.

It would have been confusing if youd posted the only Bleechers track on my Ipod, Ram You Hard.

It must be the pic Simon - I'm guessing it wasn't the clues?

Delightful title. One to roll over 'til Valentine's Day perhaps?

Wasnt the pic, it was the song, Ive been a fan of the mystery mans work for years. Thats a clever clue, nice one!

hmm... no idea have to think on

Mondo said...

Couple of clues then F-Ron. His work was at it's most popular but still cultish in the late 60s/early 70s. Revived in the late 70s, and would say it's mainted peak saturation and awareness since the mid 90s.

He had a mention in a post last month.

Additionally, I love doing things through the medium of Lee Perry. I may work today in the style of Lee Perry. Anybody in Holborn watch out for fires!!

No idea. But then I am famously useless at cryptic quizzes so don't mind me.

Did he invent the toaster? Lee Scratch Perry used to wear one on his head, so I'm pretty confident.

(WV: tostru! I can't fail on this one.)

Our Holborn building had a mini-blaze about 18 months ago. I casually lumped my way out thinking it was some dopey ol' fire drill, only to step out into tumbling embers and a scene from Casualty..

Luckily I had my wallet in my back pocket, but train ticket, Oyster and MP3 were still at the desk - ho hum!

I've been loving this Lee Perry lately...(spot the Groove Armada ref)


I was tempted to post something by this lot OP, but though it may make things to obvious..PS 'nother clue in the post tags..

Mondo said...

No, not Morphy Richards ISB - but continuing on with the fire motif which is nothing to do with Mr Mystery.. another clue..

All the pieces are in place now, surely?

Aha got it, ABS.

Mondo said...

That's the kiddie

Like a homegrown Herb Alpert. Last, Hatch, Kaempfert et al were the link between our parents' record collections and ours ; when we could listen to them ironically and call it Loungecore!

John Medd said...

Doh! Scratch that! I thought it was this fella.

To paraphrase Eric and Ernie

'You're playing all the the right clues , but not necessarily in the right order; I'll give you that, Sunshine'

oh it's like taking candy from a a baby.... not a musician, but a big influence on music culture eh? Clothing perhaps? Big in the 60's and 70's, still up there today? Bit of a mod connection perhaps eh?!! haha! Simple! It's Fred Perry isn't it..... the Lee "Perry" clue was just too much!

;-)

Surprised no one went for Lord Anthony P
