Friday is Rock'n'Roll London Day





On Monday we visited The Ace CafĂ© – you can catch up with that post here – where we saw the plaque dedicated to Lord Sutch…






David Sutch (1940 – 1999) – the self-styled Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow – was leader of the Monster Raving Loony Party and holds a British political record in having lost all 40 elections in which he stood.

His “day job” was as a musician, and his CV features collaborations with such luminaries as Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and Keith Moon. In 1963, billed as Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages, he released Jack the Ripper on the Decca label, a garage rock classic which has since been covered by The Horrors and The White Stripes, among others. Here he is strutting his stuff in 1964…
