Album Notes
"Truly Some of the Most Brilliant and Disturbed Guitar Playing on Record."

Who in the freaking hell is this band, JPT Scare Band.? Some kind of American mystery band from the 1970s who are putting out new CDs in the 21st century. Why has no one ever heard of these guys? Who are they?

Here and there, in odd corners of the world, growing numbers of those who love the old school guitar crazy heavy rock have somehow become aware of the existence of JPT. The band was featured in an article in the March 2007 issue of classic rock magazine titled, “Lost Pioneers of Heavy Metal” in which they were included in the same exalted company with Iron Butterfly, Bloodrock and Leafhound. Although they have never really considered themselves a true heavy metal band, they will take any good press they can get.

The members of JPT are extremely proud of the fact that their first two albums were released on vinyl only. Good luck finding a copy, as they are both long out of print. Their first CD, Sleeping Sickness, was originally released on Monster Records and featured tracks from the two vinyl albums. Sadly, Monster Records imploded and their web site simply vanished into thin air due to heavy craziness and the suicide of one of the founding partners. The Sleeping Sickness CD was out of print for many years. But... now... It's Back!! Reissued on the band's own Kung Bomar Records label.

Their Past Is Prologue, Jamm Vapour, Rumdum Daddy and Acid Blues Is The White Man's Burden CDs are still in print and are available at CD Baby. The Acid Blues album is also available as a double 12" vinyl LP set with two extra bonus tracks. JCR Music News handles European distribution from Paris. JPT Scare Band tunes and albums are also available for download from CDBaby, iTunes and other digital download sites.


“If the band had a signed contract back in the early ‘70s, there is no doubt they would be up there with Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Black Sabbath for guitar overload damage.”
CDNow.com (Staff Recommendation - Andy Perseponko)

“It starts off and grabs you right away with its true 70s blend of acid and blues. Pure volume and sweat... reminds me of a cross between Band of Gypsies and Led Zeppelin with a hint of King Crimson and John McLaughlin... Very very heavy - very guitar rock.”
Stonnerrock.com (Robwrong)

“Not for the weak, I almost think that this should have been packaged with a warning label: THIS ALBUM MAY CAUSE SERIOUS MUSCLE STRAIN DUE TO UNCONTROLLABLE FITS OF AIR GUITAR. USE WITH CAUTION. If history had unfolded differently, or had they hooked up with a proper label at the time, there would undoubtedly be another guitar hero honored in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.”

"Mmm, this is the tenth time I hear the f**kin album in 2 days time. This is a real masterpiece, you dig it at the first hearing... I heard those songs (hehehe) and wow, they were so cool. Hehe, and the music itself? Mmmm, try to imagine this... mix in a hellish mixer some Hendrix, Cream and Grand Funk Railroad, some drops of even more psychedelic sounds, and really hard hangovers about really awesome Jams (with capital J), from the beginning to the end. Definitively, a classic album for many styles lovers (Hendrix psychedelia, hallucination Monster Magnet passages a-la 25 tab, Cream cool lyrics, and some doom and drone sips). A coooool one, dudes. Mmm, I'm going to hear it again."
Angelfire.com #Stonerrock Album Reviews (ntzr)

“An obscure & eclectic Hendrix influenced, brain-cracked power rock trio who recorded in a stone basement out of Kansas City in the 1970s. Truly some of the most brilliant and disturbed guitar playing on record.”
therawk.com Best of 2000 Lists (Charlie Quaker)

What can I say. All their 3 albums should be given more than 5 stars. Love every single album by JPT Scare Band. Every single member played so tight. Please give us more of your music. Can't wait to hear you guys again. Cheers

I was investigating pshycedelia when I came upon "Stoner Rock" and this record, and was I ever in for a treaty?! Here is everything that a 70's rock fan can whish for!!! Loooong jams, good rock and blues and an overweight of additions that adds to the sound ;) - loads of psychedelia here for any fan of "Iron Butterfly" and any of the early birds that did fly along or before these guys.
I love the sound here. waves of bluesy/acid and loads of psychedelia... Freakin' great!! :)
