Description

    Screaming Lord Sutch Torquay Concert Poster (1962). David Edward "Screaming Lord" Sutch is a very English oddity in the entertainment business. He has been referred to as a musician, a politician, and a maverick. Taking his inspiration from American R&B performer Screamin' Jay Hawkins, Sutch began his career in 1962, releasing singles produced by legendary UK producer Joe Meek and others. HIs biggest early hit was "Jack the Ripper", and he was known for appearing onstage dressed as the notorious killer, thus predating Alice Cooper's "shock rock" style by a number of years. Sutch's 1970 album, "Lord Sutch and his Heavy Friends" was cited in a 1998 BBC poll as the "Worst Album of All Time," despite an all-star backup band featuring Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, John Bonham, Noel Redding, and Nicky Hopkins. Sutch also dabbled in politics, attempting several unsuccessful runs for a seat in Parliament, before his suicide in 1999. This rare hand-made poster comes from a very early gig. It measures 20" x 19.75", and is in Good+ condition. Cheers to Lord Sutch -- jolly good show, mate!
