Biography

Scorcher worked as a deejay on several sound systems from the early 1970s. Although his first single, "Leggo Mi Hand Babylon" was not a commercial success, he had several hits in the mid-1970s with tracks such as "Jolly Bus-Ting" and "Engineers Affair".[3] In 1978 his profile was raised further by his "Peace Truce" single, which celebrated the armistice between rival political factions that would culminate in the One Love Peace Concert.[3] The same year, Scorcher joined Nicodemus, Nigger Kojak, and Mother Liza on Prince Jammy's Tapetone sound system, which soon became Jamaica's top system.[3] His first album, Rasta Fire, was also released on the United Artists offshoot Ballistic, on which he was backed by The Revolutionaries.[3] In 1979 he had a hit with "Roach in a De Corner" (on the "Real Rock" rhythm), which was followed by the similar "Frog In a Water" (on the "My Conversation" rhythm),[4] both songs appearing on his 1980 album Roach In A De Corner. He worked with Ansell Collins on a series off recordings including "Mosquitoes", which was also a hit.[3] He also set up his own Scorcher label and began production work on both his own recordings and for artists such as Tony Tuff.[3]
