Wacky British Politician/Singer Insults Friends
Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow (David Edward Sutch) was a British performer both in music and politics.

He convinced Jimmy Page to put together a recording session with some of his buddies, promising to keep their names secret. When the album came out in late winter 1970, all the names were there to see—and be vilified by the music press as the worst album ever recorded.

2023 Update: Yesterday's Papers has an excellent Youtube video overview of Lord Sutch's career and the future stars that played in his various bands—good watchin' an' learnin'.

No US singles from this album. However...
In 63 & 64, he did release these outstanding tracks: Jack The Ripper and She's Fallen In Love With The Monster Man, which you can see at the 45cat link.
