Screamin' Lord Sutch !

Hello boys & ghouls…
With a rock & horror act based to a large degree on Screamin' Jay Hawkins, David "Lord" Sutch was one of the first genuine rock & roll longhairs, and his bands employed such sterling instrumentalists as Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Ritchie Blackmore, Nicky Hopkins, and Mitch Mitchell before they became famous. His early-'60s singles -- mostly over-the-top Halloween novelties or covers of early rock and R&B standards -- are genuinely energetic and fun performances that rank among the few out-and-out raunchy rock & roll records waxed in Britain. Twiddling the knobs on his first five singles was the legendarily eccentric Joe Meek, who embellished Sutch's modest talents with his usual grab bag of treated instruments, compression, and odd effects. He was also the founder and president of The Official Monster Raving Loony Party in the UK.
On June 16, 1999, David Sutch was found hanged at his home in London. For his friends and fans the world over it was a terrible and unexpected blow. Sutch's obsession with horror movies and the macabre was well known, an integral part of his image, but it was strictly for laughs. Well, always look on the bright side of death.

Another good selection Rev! I've got an old collection album of his stuff, definitely not the greatest singer but yet entertaining. Especially just knowing that some of the greatest guitarist's ever graced his records.
