Reverse tributes

April 24, 2015

Hot on the heels of Coverdale’s Purple Album, and Blackmore’s rumoured Purple Rainbows, comes news of a sort of reverse tribute offering, from the Deep Purple covers band Purpendicular.
They’ve gone in the other direction, and ditched their covers in favour of an album of all new material BUT with contributions from Roger Glover, Ian Paice, Don Airey, Steve Morse and Neil Murray!
It’s a concept album entitled This Is The Thing #1 and available through through their own website.
Nick Simper has also gone the same way and cut a new album with Nasty Habits, the band he did the successful Mk 1 tribute shows with for some time. This time he’s doing all new material, contemporary rock.  The CD is titled De La Frog Conspiracy (don’t ask us why!) and it’s available through the band. Email them at nasty.habits@chello.at

Purple on black

Three vinyl reissues which may have escaped people’s notice. Flagged up here as DTB Online Store has been able to get more stock of them all at last. Purpendicular came out again in 2011. Slaves & Masters was reissued last year, while Battle Rages On, one of the rarest of the band’s albums in vinyl, came out a couple of months back. These are all European pressings on heavy-weight vinyl. Check to store out or give us a call for more details.
