PR video from Black Country Communion

Black Country Communion’s official site has been updated with a promotion video. In the video, all members get to talk about the band and we also get a look into the recording sessions as well as some sound clips of the new songs.

    Well, at last something to be excited about. There was always a possibility that this project would implode. Album in stores 21 Sept. I hope they tour this in europe and particularly scandinavia – I’ll be there if they do.

    Several comments from the video by the various band members are striking. References to spontaneity, novelty, fire, spark and super-excitement give promise and are not words generally associated with current Deep Purple recording prospects.

    Although it is too early to draw a conclusion from the mere snippets available, the samples do convey this excitement. The guitar passage playing during the control room discussion was of particular interest. Although I’m more of a single-coil guy, the phrase caught my ear and I had to go back and listen to it a couple of times. You just can’t beat blues riffs.

    Joe Bonamassa’s comments demonstrate the right attitude. It is important to get the right feel without over-doing things until it becomes numb. Even Glenn Hughes is talking wanting to go out and rock–something he says he’d been missing and should have been doing all along. “Let’s make a classic rock album…” Derek Sherenian also alludes to “vintage style” Hammond organ playing. I just hope that the B3 remains high in the mix throughout the record rather than just for color–as it often was in Whitesnake.

    It is difficult to manufacture brilliance, which is why deliberate “supergroups” often fall short. This group, however, appears to be founded more on serendipity–and that is from where most great inventions come.

    T said SERENDIPITY….

    I like that word.

    Hopefully Glenn stays in the rockframe without straying too much.

    He has a history of flipflopping all the time in that respect.

    How long will it thake that his other personae the FUNK BROTHER will jump out of his brain?

    I love the funk input but I have hoped fruitlessly for many years now that he would realise that he should contain himself.

    A few seconds of overdoing your Michael Jackson and other deplorable inclinations will do, Glenn.

    There is SO MUCH you can do with that voice, man.
    Please dont spoil it.

    Cheers, Mark

    Look at Glenn saying “We decided to be just a classic rock band”. When he was in DP, he wanted to be in a “funky blues band”, remember?!

    And look at Jason saying “My father was a big fan of Trapeze…” He would never admit or say his father was a big fan of DEEP PURPLE.

    …well, I like what I see and hear so far…! Looking forward to hear more from these guys!

    The moment in time Jon Bonham and Ritchie spoke to each other while doing a piss is great as well.

    Ritchie told a shocked Bonham where Jimmy Page found his so called original ideas.
