Killer on the Loose:
This was probably as controversial as it gets: Philip was even accused of exploiting the Peter Sutcliffe Ripper murders of the early 80’s and the record came out smack in the middle of a manhunt if I remember correctly. ‘Killer on the Loose’ is one great song too, rocking stuff with a memorable beat and superb chorus. Lizzy at their best and I still play it to rev me up for work.
Strangely enough I just saw this single and it’s title a great excuse to use my back cover art from the ‘Chinatown’ album art and Philip and the band agreed, mind you this was Philip’s own idea he passed on to me and my only reservation after the controversy was with the pool of blood under the lettering -but I was just making a quiet jokey reminder of the blood on the rose in my ‘Black Rose’ artwork.
Jack the Ripper 2 was far from my mind, that rubbish all came later from the tabloids who used anything they could to make another Ripper headline
The artwork worked great then and now, but the timing was not the greatest. Then again it’s fuckin music not real life. No one was harmed in the making of this music or art.
‘Killer on the Loose…. Ladykiller on the loose’… etc ? Great writing, so Philip, so Lizzy and unconnected to that moron Sutcliffe who murdered real women, all innocent.
