Yesterday, I received a twitter reply — in response the the sixties garage rock set — hailing the campy greatness that is Screaming Lord Sutch.  For horror movie obsessed, kitschy, garage rock at its finest, I couldn’t agree more.  Alice Cooper had nothing on this guy. The lord’s best known track, “Jack The Ripper, has been covered by various ’00s garage enthusiasts including Black Lips, White Stripes and, naturally, the Horrors, though, really, none compare to the original.  Check out this live version too — dude is a freak.
