One the Juggler was a British alternative rock band. The name was derived from the first Tarot card. It was chosen to complement the band's Gypsy image. [1]

The group signed a record contract with RCA Records in 1982. They had some success in the UK charts and supported artists such as Elvis Costello and Eurythmics. In 1985, a contractual dispute resulted in their last album, produced and played on by Mick Ronson not being promoted. The group disbanded soon afterward.
