NWOBHM Veterans JAGUAR signs with GOLDENCORE RECORDS / ZYX MUSIC
GoldenCore Records / ZYX Music welcomes JAGUAR with their new Album METAL X and a re-release of their last album from 2003 "RUN RAGGED.
Mixed by Black Sabbath and Judas Priest engineer and producer Mike Exeter!!!
The band was formed in December 1979 by Jeff Cox and Garry Pepperd by placing an add in a local newspaper. The original line-up consisted of Garry Pepperd (guitar), Jeff Cox (bass, vocals) and Chris Lovell (drums). In the following April, Rob Reiss (singer) was added. They built a local reputation and recorded two demos, the latter of which earned them a deal with Heavy Metal Records, and in 1981 they released the single “Back Street Woman” which sold over 4.000 copies.
On 22nd March and 22nd December 1980 Jaguar recorded six tracks that were released on a demo cassette in early 1981. The songs were "Stormchild" (Cox), "Ain't No Fantasy" (Pepperd), "War Machine" (Pepperd), "Battlecry" (Cox/Pepperd), "Feel The Heat" (Pepperd) and "Piledriver" (Cox/Pepperd).
In 1982, after an appearance at a Dutch rock festival, they secured a recording contract with Neat Records and the subsequent single, "Axe Crazy", sold well. After intensive touring, Jaguar's debut album “Power Games” was released in early 1983. Their follow up album “This Time” came out in 1984 and was a marked change of direction. However, this musical change of direction saw sales and interest evaporate and by the end of the year the band folded.
A revival of interest in the NWOBHM in Europe and Japan and a successful re-release of their first album in those regions prompted a reformation in 1999 with a modified line-up of Pepperd, Jeff Cox, Nathan Cox on drums and vocalist Jamie Manton. An appearance at Wacken Open Air the same year proved the new line up was capable of recreating the energy of the early years. The album “Wake Me” followed in 2000, after which Jeff Cox left the band to concentrate on solo material and family life. Jeff was replaced by Darren Furze and the next album “Run Ragged” appeared in 2003.
In 2007 the band released two live albums. The first release was a recording from a show the band performed in the Netherlands in 1982, which originally saw only a limited release, the second was the first of three planned releases covering early, unreleased recordings, entitled “Archive Alive Vol.1”. It covered the period of the band's successful years, the birth of the band and their rise to NWOBHM prominence. Sleeve notes were written by the band's guitarist, Garry Pepperd, and the album cover included rare photographs.
Besides their Sweden debut this summer at Sweden Rock Festival, Jaguar intend to release their latest album shortly - This will be the first new material since 2003's “Run Ragged”. ... =><=Facebook
