Since the start of 2007 JuggaNote have been dedicated to developing their own take on alternative hip-hop, combining musical genres such as metal, rap, rock and occasionally reggae, predominantly amalgamating those styles more typically associated and ingrained with angst and attitude.
From their first live shows early on in 2007 the band has been rocking stages around the U.K mainly concentrating on home turf in South Wales, working hard to bring their sound to the masses through any and every medium available.
With 3 CD releases in as many years and featuring slots on several compilation albums worldwide JuggaNote continue to build their underground following with particular recognition in Japan, Germany, Russia and throughout Eastern Europe.
Made up of 4 musician/friends JuggaNote collectively state that they do what they do as much for themselves as for their fans. Choosing to focus on constantly progressing in the local rap/metal scene and the worldwide rapcore movement whilst being entertaining and informative.
The band is currently made up of Barry Town lyricist BeSpoken, guitarist Dan 'D Man' Careless, Bass player Martin ‘Marty’ Peareth and Joe Roberts aka the Doc BlackdaWho providing beats and samples using the Akai MPC 500.
Early in 2007 the band recorded their first 3 tracks on a self titled demo. The demo recorded at Nottin Pill Studios, Newport with ex Skindred guitarist Jeff Rose and drummer Martyn “Ginge” Ford.
