Album Notes
Banded together during the tumultuous years of the early 70’s, JPT Scare Band fused a sound equally heavy in hard rocking blues as it was tripped out in psychedelia, creating a sound so imposing that it perfectly reflected the emotions of the era. Formed by guitarist / vocalist Terry Swope, drummer Jeff Littrell, and bassist Paul Grigsby, JPT Scare Band began recording songs in their Kansas City basement, and soon compiled a vault full of reel to reel tape that would make up much of the band’s catalog.

Though the band formed in 1973, JPT Scare Band’s first album, Acid Acetate Excursion, wasn’t released until 1994, over twenty years after the bands formation. Along with Acid Acetate Excursion, the band, in conjunction with Monster Records, released two more albums, 1998’s Rape of Titan’s Sirens, and 2000’s Sleeping Sickness. Each release highlighted the bands heavy psyche/proto-metal blues sound, the otherworldly and unheralded guitar work of Terry Swope, and each has become an underground cult classic. All this musical madness has led to Classic Rock Magazine to declare JPT Scare Band as “one of the lost pioneers of Proto-Metal” and all that is heavy.

The new millennium has seen JPT Scare Band delve deeper into their archive of recorded material, accumulated through massive jam sessions throughout the 70’s, as well as the 90’s, and a flood of product was soon released. Through the band’s self realized record label, Kung Bomar, seven albums hit the streets including 2002’s brilliant Past is Prologue, 2007’s stunning release of all new material, Jamm Vapour, and most recently, 2009’s Rumdum Daddy.

In the waning months of 2009, JPT Scare Band has merged their energies with indie rock label, Ripple Music, to release Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden, a collection of unreleased tracks, extended jams, and outstanding cover tunes that will help bridge the gaps of the JPT chronology and turn on a whole new generation to their classic version of acid-rock.
