Crawly Day 4: Screaming Lord Sutch's "Dracula's Daughter"
This one strays back into novelty territory, but in entirely enjoyable fashion. Screaming Lord Sutch seems to have made a full on novelty act out of his love for campy musical treatments of horror film material and the like, including tunes with names like "Jack the Ripper," "Murder in the Graveyard," and "The Wolfman Strikes Again."
Sadly his love of the darker side of life wasn't a joke - according to this, he committed suicide by hanging in 1999. RIP Lord Sutch.
He left behind his musical legacy plus, interestingly enough, a British political party called the "Official Raving Monster Loony Party."
