Something old, something new, something borrowed, always blue...

Very unexpectedly, the very dead band !JP released a collection of their best live-songs.
On ONCE FREAK SHOW, once more, the listener is treated to a little glimpse of a very interesting past, a fitting past made by the unique, sometimes grotesque, but always punk-rocking band !JP (a.k.a the Velvets of the new millennium).
On Thanksgiving 2016, the memories of this band will give away free downloads of the album.
Make sure to check and to like the memories of !JP page on FB>>>



Along with !JP's ONCE FREAK SHOW, the promotional single SNAKE is released as well.
Backed with the eponymous (sort of) track MOTHERFUCKER, which became the band's showstopper in the first decade of the current millennium, the single release also contains the cleaned-up version of the 2012 live-single release of SNAKE.

After the fully extended website/bandcamp version of CARBON COPY and the additional CARBON COPY DANCEFLOOR, the CD/Vinyl/Tape version is now also available on a variety of download sites (like iTunes and Amazon) and stream sites (like Spotify and Deezer).
Although #JK dropped festivities around this celebration album due to a very tight schedule in both theater and film, he now continues to celebrate he has survived 25 years in the music industry (not without a fight here and there, by the way).

November 5th, 2016: 12 and a half years of SURRENDER THE PINK; !JP's philosophical album about love, a strange trip across genres like drum 'n' bass, rock, pop, punk, dance and world-music. It was the first time avant-punk band !JP made an "almost pop album."
During the OVER THE BRIDGE WE GO, LOOKING FOR LOVE TOUR, !JP then enforced, they released a couple of vinyl collector item EP's.
For the first time these EP's have now been digitally re-released.





Plus: this December, the re-mastered album SELECTED SURRENDERS will be released through CROMMANIA RECORDS (the original record company who signed !JP in 1993).
SELECTED SURRENDERS is the first in a series of albums, containing music by !JP from the original albums, re-mastered, edited and sometimes an addition or alternative is added to the albums.
The first album to receive such a treatment is SURRENDER THE PINK (2004).
Soon to be pre-ordered on iTunes and Amazon, already to be pre-ordered on this site or on #JK's BANDCAMP site.
