This is a "live" TV performance of "Jack the Ripper", a wild 1964 rock 'n roll hit song (mostly in England), by Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow (real name: David Edward Sutch) a very talented and creative English rock 'n roll singer / musician, who became famous in the 1960s, with horror-themed rock songs. It is somewhat surprising that the song is not very well known in the United States, not even as a Halloween song. By the way: The name "Screaming Lord Sutch" was a stage name. Sutch was not a member of the English aristocracy in any way. The name was a twist on the name of the 1950s rock star and legendary musical performer Screamin' Jay Hawkins. His fame in England was enhanced by his repeated (although unsuccessful) campaigns for election to the British parliament, from a wide assortment of districts, over 40 in total. Although he did not ever have a winning campaign, he sometimes had a significant impact on the outcome. Sad to say, Lord Sutch passed way in 1999.
For anyone interested, there is a good biography of the life of Screaming Lord Sutch
