RARE BEAT - GARAGE ROCK AND PSYCHEDELIC
SCREAMING LORD SUTCH
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

Sutch was born in Hampstead, London. In the 1960s, inspired by one of his favourite rock and roll stars, Screamin' Jay Hawkins, he changed his name to Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow. Following a successful career as an early-'60s rock 'n' roll attraction, it became customary for the UK press and citizens to refer to him as Screaming Lord Sutch, or simply Lord Sutch. Early works included recordings produced by legendary audio pioneer Joe Meek. During the 1960s, Screaming Lord Sutch was known for his horror-themed stage show, as well as for usually dressing like Jack the Ripper, pre-dating the shock rock antics of Alice Cooper by several years. Accompanied by his band, The Savages, he often started the show by coming out of a big black coffin. Other stage props included knives and daggers, skulls, and "bodies". Sutch also booked 'themed' concert tours, such as 'Sutch and the Roman Empire', where the Sutch and the band members would be dressed up as Roman soldiers. Despite his self-confessed lack of any vocal talent, he released many horror themed singles during the early-mid 60s, the most popular and well known of which is "Jack the Ripper". He stood in various parliamentary elections. In his career he contested over 40 elections, rarely threatening the major party candidates, but often getting a respectable number of votes. Despite his seemingly light-hearted antics, in actuality Screaming Lord Sutch suffered from periods of low mood and committed suicide by hanging on June 16, 1999, following the death of his mother the previous year.
