JPT Scare Band - Acid Acetate Excursion, album review

This Is JPT

Recorded on reel-to-reel in a basement between 1973-76 [I believe], initially released in 1994, and now getting a vinyl re-release, this is freak-out, 'proto-metal' - not my tag - music that is for fans of quite raw, jamming wah-wah and fuzzed guitar.

The opener Sleeping Sickness is the only song of the four with vocals by Jerry Swope, and his guitar work dominates with occasional echoes of Hendrix but by and large just heaviness, and much of this quick. The other two in this power trio are drummer Jeff Littrell and bassist Paul Grigsby.

You can tell it's basement jam music and spaced out on its own spontaneity, but that is what makes it so authentic. If you like guitar and feedback and skill, this is it. This.
