Scritti will always remain a subversive blending of beautiful candy coated pop/reggae/funk/hip hop and Bacharach on LSD.
Green has a unique and wonderful vocal style that sounds not dissimilar to Michael Jackson on songs like 'Wood Beez' and the LP's 'Cupid..' and 'Provision' contain some of the most progressive and futuristic machine soul and programming/sequencing ever, and this was in the days when things like MIDI were in it's infancy. Fairlights at the ready......

A huuuuuuge influence. Green, we salute you sir!
