HellrideMusic.com, Chris Barnes "The beauty of the JPT Scare Band is it's ability to function as a unit in the nebulous field of the free-form heavy jam. They start with a chord progression and the rest is a musical conversation, the direction dictated by unspoken energies. Terry Swope is a gawdam genius. One of the best all around soul guitarists I've ever heard... Definitely in the league with the best in that genre."

"They just get into a groove, a steady, freaky space and hold that intention, moving time and space through their amps. This is where the album title came from. A full-out acid-drenched jam, allowed to go where ever the vapors flowed." (Ripple Effect, Racer)

Heavy Trips in the Electric Ghost House, by Austin Matthews

interview /  article that will appear in Classic Rock Magazine  #209
 
"Welcome Back JPT Scare Band, Kansas's hidden heroes of heavy psychedelie return, armed with vinyl reissues, on "firece" form."
JPT on the Obelisk After more than three solid months of Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden holding down a top five spot in CDBaby.com’s “Extended Jam” category, legendary acid rockers, JPT Scare Band come roaring back with a blitzing assault on their newest single, “Long Day.” Featuring the sizzling guitar work of Terry Swope, “Long Day,” tears through more than eight minutes of searing guitar leads, massive bass riffs, and mammoth drum jamming, all in the definitive JPT Scare Band style.
JPT on the Obelisk 4/4/2015 -JPT gets a little write up in The Obelisk this month, March 2015.
Rhapsody SoundBoard - Classic Rock Crate Digger: 10 Essential Proto Metal Albums: "This wonderfully raw mismash of once forgotten demos is proto-metal heaven, particularly the 13 minute opus 'Sleeping Sickness'". "In 2007 Classic Rock Magazine tagged JPT as "the lost pioneers of heavy metal". "That's no overstatement, these dudes slayed with the best of them: Cactus, Black Pearl, Pentagram and so on."
  Check out the LP review at The Obelisk
NEWS: read Classic Rock Magazine's interview of JPT, Iron Butterfly and others, "Lost Pioneers of Heavy Metal" "JPT Scare Band was the death metal of early 70s hard rock ...The aptly named band constructed towering walls of terrifying evocative, druggy guitar noise..."
4/4/2015 -Here's a bit of what they had to say about the new LP...
..."Acid Acetate Excursion stats with sounds of a radio signal followed by a man coughing (ala Sweet Leaf by kindred spirits Black Sabbath) and kicks into some classic blues licks before the rhythm section follows with the vocals of singer /guitarist Terry Swope.  This song is a brilliant example of the entire ethos of a band doing exactly what they want and even though it lasts for 15 minutes it feels more like 5!"  (click for the whole article)
...“Acid Blues Is The White Man’s Burden” is a collection of seven tunes recorded between 1974 and 2004, all originals save for a cover of Son House’s “Death Letter.” Not a lot has changed in 30 years and that is to the band’s credit. The same energy and reckless drive is applied to 2001’s “Long Day” as 1975’s “Stone House Blues,” two of the disc’s standout tracks. The best jam comes midway through the disc. “I’ve Been Waiting” (also 2001, although an earlier version was recorded in the formative years) is a template for the power trio format: a killer riff, a vocal that recalls the enormity of 1970s arena rock and guitar solos that build momentum by continually tweaking variations to the main riff. It’s the type of thing Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule would later build their career on.
4/4/2015 - these guys are pimpin up the new vinyl for the band too...
"...This April, Ripple Music will release a very special LP set consisting of their first two, seminal releases - Acid Acetate Excursion and Rape of The Titan's Sirens - re-presented in full, with new gatefold album art that incorporates the images of the original two albums. Originally recorded in the 1970's, these albums have been out of print since the original Monster Records release in the early 90s and represent the full early history of the band that Classic Rock Magazine once hailed as one of the, "LOST PIONEERS OF PROTO METAL."

2004 Rumdum Daddy Documentary                                             John Paul Grigsby

   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkToePijMq0&feature=player_embedded

"JPT documentary video" on Youtube

 

John Paul put together the Jamm Vapour, "Ramona" video and the Rumdum Daddy video documentary of the 2004 recording session at Berry Music Group with Len Alred engineering and Greg Gassman assisting. Rocky Rude helped provide headphone amps to overcome the loud studio volume issues. Using Computer and hand drawn animation along with some black magic, he came up with some cool stuff to melt into as your eyes as your ears soak in it. Daryl Drake recorded the 8mm video for several videos using his wife, Donna's 8mm film camera. This video work was done in the psychedelic summer of 1974 and shows how Volker Park used to look when rock and roll was what you listened to on a warm, summer afternoon at the park with several thousand of your closest friends.

 John and Dr. Bomar have also produced a DVD project from the Crosstown Station gig with camera work done by Luke LeTourneau and Arjay Josephine with Rocky Rude at the controls of the mains and monitors and Dave Brock who recorded the gig having considerable trouble due to massive volume shutting down his MAC at imopportune times in spite of which we were still able to crank out a pretty kick ass video. Dr. Bomar would be glad to snail mail a copy to you for $10 plus shipping, figure about $2. Email for details: bomar@jptscareband.com The whole 2011 show plus interviews and additional videos like Ramona and Long Day are also on the DVD. 
johngrigsby.com is where you can find a  John's music, annimation and stop actionwork. He has become an integral partof the band and a great collaborator.
