HMV stocks Fighting Demons CD
HMV, the specialist retailer of music, film and games, has announced that it will be stocking The Fluffy Jackets' debut album in 50 of their largest stores around the UK.
(London, UK, March, 2014) In today's modern music industry, it is rare that a relatively unknown group is being picked for woldwide distribution by mainstream companies, certainly on the UK high street, where products are fighting for every retail shelf available. However, the first Fluffy Jackets record has some serious pedigree behind it, which convinced HMW to take a punt on this debut release.
The debut album "Fighting Demons" was recorded in parts at the historic 1950’s Sun Studio in Memphis TN, where The Fluffy Jackets founder Helge Rognstad was joined by classic rock legends Manny Charlton (Nazareth), Neil Murray (Whitesnake) and Robert Hall (Jerry Lee Lewis).
Further sessions would take place in London UK at the Cowshed Studio. This line-up would again feature bass player Neil Murray, plus renowned harmonica player West Weston, in addition to Fluffy Jackets regulars Jerry Bessent and Nick Rhodes. Emil Gammeltoft from the Swedish band SKoR also feature as a special guest on the album.
The album will be launched available in 50 HMV stores on the UK high streets on the 3rd of March 2014. This follows the news that The Fluffy Jackets have signed a 3 year record deal with Cargo Records, a leading distributor of music in Europe.
