I think people compare Screamin’ Lord Sutch to Alice Cooper, since they both came up around the same time in the 60’s/70’s. Still, I think Alice has a little more grit and grossness, whereas Sutch would later go on to politics. Still, his music is seen as an inspiration for the modern mad garage scene, where creeps halfbent on fuzz and reverb look to get wild.
Such creeps are the Fuzztones, who took the ball from the forefathers and ran with it. The Fuzztones are known for being awesome. In doing so, they helped Screamin’ Jay Hawkins out so you know they’re legit.
