JPT Scare Band: Acid Acetate Excursion/Rape Of The Titan's Sirens 2LP
'Banded together during the tumultuous years of the early 70s, 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 tapes that would make up much of the band’s catalogue.
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 band’s formation. The release highlighted the band's heavy psych/proto-metal blues sound through the otherworldly and unheralded guitar work of Terry Swope, and each has become an underground cult classic.
Ripple Music presents a very special double LP reissue of Acid Acetate Excursion and Rape of the Titan's Sirens. Originally recorded in the 1970s, these albums represent the foundational statements from the band that Classic Rock Magazine hailed as one of "the lost pioneers of proto-metal."
