the Official Monster Raving Loony Party

McNaughty Books, London, 1996
(price: 3.99; 80 pages)


The blurb on the back:

Vote for Insanity - you know it makes sense.
This is probably the only Party Political Manifesto you'll ever enjoy - so go on, treat yourself!


David 'Screaming Lord' Sutch was an impressive figure in his own way. With a modicum of talent to draw on, he managed to spin out a career whose longevity was the envy of most of his contemporaries. His records were deeply underwhelming and unsuccessful, despite production by Joe Meek, and despite contributions by the likes of Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore and Paul Nicholas, but then recording was never really his forte. Nor was politics. He was, however, totally harmless, and a nice guy who had a fantastic aptitude for generating publicity.

I can't really comment on this book, since it was ghost-written by me, but there are a couple of good jokes in it, honest.
