The World As We Love It

Almost a year ago Russian band Pushking started working on their new album called The World As We Love It (working title: Pushking Duets). The goal of the project appears to be essentially similar to Gillan’s Inn — re-record an album worth of old numbers with guest appearances from as many big name musicians as possible (although, in all fairness, I don’t think most of the guests ever heard of this band before, unlike of Gillan).

So far, with the help of producer Fabrizio Grossi they have secured contributions from an impressive list of rock luminaries — including several members and relatives of the Purple Family — Glenn Hughes, Joe Lynn Turner, Graham Bonnet, Matt Filippini, John Lawton, Udo Dirkschneider, Dan McCafferty, Steve Lukather, Eric Martin (ex-Mr. Big), Jeff Scott Soto, Alice Cooper and his guitarist Keri Kelli, Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Joe Bonamassa, Jorn Lande, Eric Ragno, Stevie Salas, Steve Vai, Billy Gibbons and Paul Stanley. And the list keeps growing.

Basic tracks were recorded at the Matt Filippini’s studio in Italy, while various guests do their bits mostly in studios around Los Angeles.

The project will be ready, well, when it’s ready. You can follow the progress at pushking.eu.

Thanks to Kostya from deep-purple.ru forum for the heads up.

    Wasn’t last time even Ian Gillan’s name mentioned as one of the guest contributors?

    Interesting indeed, I’m impressed after getting the entire scoop at their website… it would even be better if, like on G’s Inn, they included a 5.1 mix.
