"JACKVIPER are like a woman yanking down your pants to give you a blowjob. The vocals go straight for the throat while the rest of the band grab you by the nuts and demand to be noticed!" -- www.sleazeroxx.com

Biography

JACKVIPER was formed in the dirty backstreets of Soho, London, UK in defiance of characterless manufactured music everywhere. The aim was simple: to put trashy sleazey rock n roll back on the map! To this end when the JACKVIPER sleaze n roll circus rolls into your town you will witness a live show like no other! JACKVIPER play with a vitality and attitude reminiscent of the hard rock bands of the 1980's and whilst maintaining a genuine admiration for those great bands, JACKVIPER are firmly a product of modern times, producing exciting music in their own contemporary style. To quote:

“JACKVIPER play at the speed of Motorhead and with the intensity of Guns N Roses. At last a retro sleaze band who can write songs as well as fit into lace-up leather trousers...Notoriety and infamy awaits.” METAL HAMMER MAGAZINE

Already JACKVIPER have completed three full UK tours all in support of various multi-platinum artists, played in Germany with Phil Lewis’ LA Guns, provided the soundtrack to the Axl Rose DVD: "The Prettiest Star", been released on Perris Records' "Hollywood Hairspray V" compilation and featured as a breaking band in Europe’s best selling Metal magazine, Metal-Hammer. JACKVIPER's track ‘Spider to the Fly’ was also featured on the Metal-Hammer cover CD.

‘Spider to the Fly’ has also been pre-loaded onto half a million Creative Zen MP3 players released throughout Europe, and JACKVIPER have been officially endorsed by Marshall Amplification. JACKVIPER were also featured on Perris Records international release ‘The Perris International Network CD’ released in February 2007.

JACKVIPER were the only UK band to be invited to play Hollywood Cruefest 2007 and also at New York Cruefest 2007. Both nights were a complete success and JackViper will be appearing Stateside again very soon!

Lyrics

Spider to The Fly

Written By: JACKVIPER

Candy apple, black inside,
Garden path, led astray,
Settle down, stay the night,
You know you can't resist.

Step inside my broken world,
Mind the ropes, dont hang yourself,
In my filth, I dream the dreams that make you scream.

Step into my parlour said the Spider to the Fly,
If you stay a while surely you must die,
Into the parlour, taste my poisoned mind,
No need to struggle said the Spider to the Fly.

Sweet nothings, nothing to me,
Help yourself, it aint free,
Bittersweet, bite down hard,
Now you're in you can't get out.

Close your eyes,
Pray to your God,
Saint and Sinners follow me,
Pied Piper of depravity,
You twist and turn and beg and yearn.

Step into my parlour said the Spider to the Fly,
If you stay a while surely you must die,
Into the parlour, taste my poisoned mind,
No need to struggle said the Spider to the Fly.

(Repeat)

Into the parlour,
Straight to Hell.

(Repeat)

Step into my parlour stay a while.

Devil May Care

Written By: JACKVIPER

You play with razors
you're gonna get cut
Burn your bridges
you cant look back
We've all got a cross to bear
hit the bottom
I'll see ya there.
Bitch has got a loose mouth
shot it off all over town
Words are bullets to the faithful
reputations shot to hell.

Devil may care x 3
but I don't.

Time aint been too kind
one day ya just left behind
When there's no more money to burn
how the hell ya gonna get by.
Cold turkey in a dirty alley
how's the view from down there
sitting in the detrus
with your wide eyed stare.

Devil May Care x3
But i don't.

No-one cares about you
your used up life,
Say your last goodbye
and just curl up and die.

Devil May Care x3
But i don't.

Devil, Devil, Devil May Care!
