A – board

This is the in-store poster for the album, or in this case outside the store on an a-board in Tampere in Finland. One assumes it vanished soon after! Roger Glover has confirmed that IG got the title idea from the sublime comedy show Fawlty Towers, specifically Basil’s line where he is musing on the shortness of a human lifetime: “Whoosh…. there it goes mate…”. David Browne points out that IG has remembered the quote wrongly. So, the album should have been called “Zzzoom!”
