Managed to catch the last half hour or so of this and was enjoyable as usual! (Hadn't heard Last Note Of Freedom in ages emoticon). Btw Dougie, was it you I saw at the Gotthard gig at the London Underworld yesterday? If so, did you like them? (I thought their singer had an absolutely gobsmackingly good voice!)

Re: Dont Give Up the Day Job


Well, I just received this review, but personally couldn't agree on the last comment

Deep Purple
Rock Hard Café 11 October 2005

Fireball
I've Got Your Number
Strange Kind Of Woman
Kiss Tomorrow
Rapture OF the Deep
Wrong Man
Lazy
Perfect Strangers
Highway Star
Smoke On The Water


To celebrate the re-opening after a fire earlier in the year, the
café was opened for this special event, that sadly featured more
trendy suits, business types, cast iron spiky haircuts and
those `wishing to be seen at the event' than genuine Deep Purple
fans; including foulmouthed celebrity gobshite brat Kelly Osbourne
who took part in the charity auction.

Packed, with 200-300 people or there abouts, it was a smoky and
sweaty atmosphere when Rooster came on stage. Indie rock, the new
Reef, NME favourites. Not bad but certainly nothing outstanding or
too grabbing. Very formulaic trendy indie rock.

Deep Purple hit the stage late, playing a straight set of 65
minutes. First song or two they were a little unsure of themselves,
I think because of the setting, atmosphere and crowd, but as soon as
they realised that they were actually on form and would go down a
storm, they soon had the place rocking.

Ian Gillan remains one of the truly great rock frontmen, smiling and
certainly in top condition and very strong on this tiny stage; the
band barely having room to move. Bassist Roger Glover and drummer
Ian Paice proved a solid and exciting rhythm section that certainly
put Rooster to shame.
New boys guitarist Steve Morse and pianist Don Airey were not only
on form but stamped their sound on songs new and old, fitting in
seamlessly.

More recent songs from the last few albums and the latest set
Rapture Of The Deep were just as good as anything Purple have ever
done and went down well, and mixed in perfectly with older numbers.
Airey's lengthy keyboard intros to Lazy, Perfect Strangers and
Highway Star were superb.

Smoke On The Water remains the perfect set closed as always.

An encore of Black Night and Hush had to be abandoned due to time
constraints (starting an hour late didn't' help). Apart from that,
no complaints whatsoever. On this evidense, Blackmore and Lord won't
be missed.
