posticon Warhorse


Hello friends. It's been a long time since I've posted anything, family commitments and all. I don't get much computer time anymore.
   I recently had the pleasure of hearing the 2 Warhorse cd's for the first time. And I must say that I was very impressed. After reading an interview with Nick Simper in which he stated that the he was responsible for much of MkI's sound, I thought that he was giving himself too much credit. He admits to having sour grapes toward the band. But after hearing Warhorse I saw just how wrong I was. This is what DP should have sounded like, and would have sounded like if not for the classical thing going on at the time. No need to rehash that here. Of course, on the flip side, I really enjoyed the classical thing on the MK1 albums, so I can't judge on whether that was the right thing to do at the time or not. Back to Warhorse, Nicky was right. They absolutely rocked. If anyone knows of any live Warhorse or DP MK1, please let me know. I would love to hear it. Thanks.

Re: Warhorse


I'm a huge Warhorse fan. Still remember hearing that debut album for the first time, and thinking how great it sounded. Heavy, raw, agressive. One of the best forgotten bands of the early British rock scene. That debut especially, is fantastic.

Don't think any live Warhose exists other than the bonus cuts on the CD, and Beat Club footage of the band playing Ritual, where Pete Parks pretends to play Ged Peck's lines, if I remember correctly. I'll have to dig it out.

As for Deep Purple MK1, there is the Inglewood gig that has been released officially.

Check out Nick Simper's Fandango too, if you haven't already. Same guitarist, Pete Parks, that was on Warhorse's second album, but with a more commercially-driven sound. A cross between ZZ Top and Nazareth perhaps. Some fantastic songs on here too. Great stuff.
