JPT SCARE BAND
"Acid Blues is the White Man's Burden" (Ripple; 2010)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Unearthed from obscurity, Kansas City psychedelic proto-metal group JPT Scare Band have been around since the early 70s but have only been releasing albums since the mid-90s. The band’s latest batch of tunes stemming from a multitude of basement and studios sessions comprises the collection "Acid Blues is the White Man's Burden," a fuzz-laden seven track time machine trip through the formative years of hard rock via a bevy of organically organized hazy blues jams that wouldn’t sound out of place between Hendrix, Cream and Zeppelin on classic rock radio.
Throw in some garage rock charm, a dash of Blue Cheer rhythmic rattle, explosive fretwork fireworks melding Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimmy Page and an unadulterated rock'n'roll spirit and you’ve got the makings of a band long overdue to collect the praise and adoration they richly deserve.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
