JPT Scare Band has been blazing psychedelic trails for quite some time now. Over the years and decades they have managed to progress from totally unknown to painfully obscure. In spite of all that... they are still together, with the original lineup intact. Still making meaningful music in the 21st century, this veteran group of jammers is also proud of their vast legacy of classic twisted insanity recorded back in olden analogue times.

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 the band has never really considered themselves as true heavy metal, they will take whatever positive press comes their way.

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 of one, as they are 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 simply vanished into thin air due to heavy craziness and the suicide of one of the two founding partners. The Sleeping Sickness CD is also now out of print. Two of the tracks on the Past Is Prologue CD ("Sleeping Sickness" and "Time To Cry") were originally featured on vinyl and then reprised on the Sleeping Sickness CD.

Their Past Is Prologue CD is still in print and is available at CD Baby and For any visitors from Europe, JCR Music News in Paris can fix you right up. You can also download JPT Scare Band tunes and albums to your iPod from

The band has recently released an album of all new original material titled Jamm Vapour. There are a few tunes from the new CD up on this site. "Jello Jamm," "Right Mind" and "Amazons" are featured tracks from Jamm Vapour. There is also a video of "Ramona," which is another track from the new CD.

Review of Jamm Vapour Album from Difficult Music Blog (The Mule)

"They laid this thing down live and dangerous in the basement, and while their sound might not be as dark and volatile as it once was, they’ve clearly still got the fire. The JPT modus operandi is pretty straightforward: write a really cool ‘70s-style rock song and jam it out to wring the maximum amount of music and excitement out of it. Take it up, take it down, drop out, drop in, and sprinkle liberally with Terry Swope’s mad-as-a-hatter guitar work. The really joyous thing about the whole enterprise is how it so obviously comes naturally to them. Unlike so many '70s-themed projects nowadays, these guys are the real deal."

Review of previous album, Past Is Prologue from Tangerine Magazine (Glenn Tillman)

"Listening to this CD, you can't help but wonder why Terry Swope isn't revered with the same kind of awe and worship as Jimi Hendrix, Robin Trower, Alvin Lee, and the rest of the 60's/70's guitar gods. Their music is psychedelic/stoner/bluesrock ecstasy. An outstanding rhythm section, emotive vocals, and a one in a million guitarist make the JPT Scare Band the best new “old” band of the year."

Review of previous album, Sleeping Sickness from (AG)

"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."

Nice to hear some old style rock a la BloodRock / Butterfly vein. The band works well together as the bass and drums lockup smoothly. Of course I am partial to the guitar work..well done. Good vocals Rock On!
