About
The Fluffy Jackets is an award-winning blues rock band from London UK. The band released their self-titled debut EP in 2007, featuring special guest Neil Murray of Whitesnake fame. The first full-length album "Fighting Demons" (2014) was recorded at the legendary birthplace of rock and roll - Sun Studio in Memphis TN, and featured special guests Manny Charlton (Nazareth), Neil Murray (Whitesnake), Rob Hall (Jerry Lee Lewis' Killer Band) plus harmonica-player Steve "West" Weston. Their first single "Why Don't You Smile" was distributed inside Classic Rock Magazine issue #194 on a CD compilation called "Sharp Shooters". This magazine CD was distributed to over 60,000 subscribers and achieved significant radio airplay in the USA and Europe, even reaching far flung places such as Russia and Israel. The Fighting Demons album scooped the "Best Studio Album of the Year" Award in 2014, voted by listeners of the "The Blues Hour" radio show in France and the UK. The band hopes to continue to record and play selected festivals and gigs.

What the press is saying:

"Impressive blues chugging from The Fluffy Jackets" - Time Out London (2007)

"It's certainly possible that a slice of fortune sprinkled with talent may pluck this unknown group from obscurity into the realms of the alternative rock scene" - Lucem Fero (2007)

"Shakin' hellhounds from their trail, British bluesmen run from dusk to dawn, from the blue shadows into the house of blue light" - Let it Rock Magazine (2014)

"The aggregation really hits their stride on the Bad Company-like classic rocker "Why Don't You Smile" where Helge doles out advice to a perennially-depressed fellow over a slow, bluesy lope that's punctuated by a couple of hot guitar solos from Charlton" - AntiMusic.com (2014)

"Fighting Demons is an entertaining story where heavy hard rock is encountering popular music and swinging blues. In short, you have the same attitude to musical variation here that was common on discs in the early 1970s" - Zero Magazine (2014)

"Take various assorted English musicians, a Spanish born former Scotland based guitarist now resident in Texas, an Edinburgh born bassist, an American drummer, a Swedish singer and front the lot with a Norwegian singer/guitarist and you end up with this rather tasty outfit." - Blues Matters (2014)
