Screaming Lord Sutch's "Jack The Ripper" Produced by Joe Meek

It starts off with footsteps following its victim, and then a female scream.  Welcome to the world of Screaming Lord Sutch and Joe Meek.  A beautifully scratchy (it adds to the horror) 45 rpm of a classic  disk by two insane people.   The beauty of the music is because its simple and in many ways the history of British dread - a touch of mania to let the poison out.  The B-side is just as bugged out as the A-side. "Don't You Just Know It" is garage rock made by madmen.  A perfect combined four minutes or so.
