As previously reported, everyone’s favorite super-underground Kansas City rockers, JPT Scare Band, have a new album coming out called Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden. In honor of it, the band has just compiled their first-ever video, which The Obelisk is honored to be on a short list of sites premiering. The song, originally written by the band in the ’70s, is called “Not My Fault,” and as the video shows, it’s just as applicable today as it was then. Some things, never change. Like scumbags. Scumbags never change.
Here’s the clip, plus some info off the PR wire:
Legendary rockers JPT Scare Band released some of the most collectible psychedelic/acid rock of all time, and now they’re about to release their first ever music video. 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. Hailed as one of the “lost pioneers of Heavy Metal” by Classic Rock Magazine, JPT Scare Band has seen a resurgence of interest by fans of 1970s heavy fuzzed out rock.
Now, on the heels of the release of their new album, Acid Blues is the White Man’s Burden on Ripple Music, JPT will unveil their first ever music video for the new JPT classic, “Not My Fault,” a song written by JPT in the ’70s but never recorded until the early 2000s. The video makes direct use of the song’s title and biting sarcastic edge as it assails BP for their denial of any blame for the Gulf oil spill disaster. The video is thought provoking and inflammatory, in addition to being a good ‘ol rock video, with tons of never before seen footage of JPT Scare Band doing what they do best.
