    JESTERS OF DESTINY were a Heavy Metal band formed in Los Angeles California.
    During their short run in the mid '80s the band were known for their unusual sound, combining Heavy Metal with psychedelic flourishes.
    Their music was instant but complex, fun without resorting to novelty, memorable and melodic without sacrificing an inch of musical muscle.
    They were later considered to be one of the earliest “alternative” metal bands because of their eclectic style.
    The band first came to people's attention with the inclusion of their "End Of Time" on the Metal Blade Records "Metal Massacre V" compilation LP, released in 1984.
    They then released their debut album "Fun At The Funeral" in 1986 on Dimension Records, a subsidiary of Metal Blade.
    A five song Mini LP was then issued in 1987, entitled "In A Nostalgic Mood", featuring the Jesters taking on songs by BLACK SABBATH, JIMI HENDRIX, CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL and more.
    The band were working on a second full length album, to be titled "No Laughing Matter", when they were dropped by their label.
    Several tracks intended for that album finally appeared on Ektro Records’ expanded deluxe CD reissue of "Fun At The Funeral" in 2001.
    After being dropped, the band continued for a while before eventually dissolving.
    A band too far ahead of the pack to reap the benefits of their pioneering.
    Bassist/Singer Bruce Duff is still active in music, having spent some time working with the Finland based Prog Rock band CIRCLE, he now plays with ANGUS KHAN.
    Angus Khan also feature former members of THE STREETWALKIN' CHEETAHS, B-MOVIE RATS and ADZ, and specialise in authentically grimy retro Hard Rock.
    Angus Khan released their debut album, "Black Leather Soul" on Nickel & Dime Records in 2009.

    It's strange...I recall seeing a quick capsule review [by Chuck Eddy?] in the old Creem Metal magazine back in '87 and always being fascinated by the name. I finally was able to locate "Fun at the Funeral" in decent shape a couple of years ago (one of my last "must-haves" that I had looked for for almost two decades) and now you have the generosity to post this one. Kudos and gracias, sir.

    MEGA THANX RIPTORN for reuploading this goodyfull of their covers of ROCK classics! I love their weird approach when i first heard and blown away by "END OF TIME",loved the combination of psych and hard rock (a style honoured by vintage ALICE COOPER) ,mainly because back then didn't know many such bands!
    Such crossover-mixing styles followed by many bands after the early 90s,but J.O.D. with thier unique psych edged vocals are from the pioneers!!
    JUST SUPERB MATE,THANX AGAIN-CHEERZ!!!! porosimetal
