Biography

Once upon a time, a strange brew of gentlemen got together and excitedly called themselves The Bulletproof Vests. They were summoned from places with exotic names such as Snowglobe, Antique Curtains, Jump Back Jake, and The Third Man. Taking a cue from their rock n’ roll forefathers, the boys put together a sonic mash — an aural stew – of songs that became their first album, Attack!

The album, performed and captured by the band themselves in their own Memphis studio, was mixed with a magic wand and a potato battery by Ardent Studios engineer, Adam Hill, who has been involved with Big Star, Jack White, The Green Brothers, The 145’s, & Jim Dickinson.

Inside this smorgasbord of sound sits a rollicking exploration of tone and genre that is part psyched out backwards fuzz freak-out, part sweet country slow drippin’ ear molasses, and part subterranean buzzsaw scream served with a helping of the heart stopping Memphis sound, filled with Big Star’s, Moloch’s, Reigning Sound’s, Oblivians’, Guilloteens’ and MGs.
