It’s innocent and charming

The record company has released another video for another track from Whoosh! This time it’s Nothing at All that got the Russian Stig themed treatment.

Thanks to BraveWords for the heads up.

    How on earth did they write an album a year ago that reflects the current state of world affairs.
    This is very spooky!
    Music of the highest order.

    A touch of Pink Floyd,circa 1987,a dash of Monty Python and plenty of Purple.
    I prob’ly won’t watch it again, but it’s good to see Whoosh get continuing promotion.

    This should have been the first single all along. Among the poppiest DP tracks ever, in line with Never Before, Woman From Tokyo and Call of the Wild. Even people who are generally left cold by DP like this one.

    Mick Box would say: “Oh, and it even has a chorus!” ; – )

    Very… very pinkfloydish in a video way… why? But I appreciate that overwhelming figure that plays the leading (video)role so far. Mature concept, ain´t it? Mature band, you bet. Music of my all life. I … with ease mind… add the address, too.

    My favorite song from the album and for me one of the best songs of the whole Morse era.

    As expected, an “artistic” clip in which the band is unfortunately not shown.
    For me, seeing the musicians is usually the most important thing about a clip.

    But crafted and artistically very nicely done. A lot of effort was made.
    But how I would have loved to see Gillan in the purple jacket with purple bowler hat. Smile

    Somehow I have the feeling that I’ve seen the “bowler actor” somewhere on TV.

    I get Gillan’s lyrics and the video only partially in relation. Both remain somewhat mysterious.
    And “The old lady” looks pretty young.

    A little Monty Pythanesk.

    But the most important thing … there is a video.
    Unfortunately still no vinyl or CD single.

    I hope they bring this special song live.

    When i watch this new video from the Whoosh album but also the previous two videos..I think of… No…Not Deep Purple
    but…Pink Floyd…this is something they could have done…This is “Pink”.. but its also “Purple”…and thats ok… I guess………

    You see Steve and Don, I assume using footage shot by little Ian.

    Video isn’t much, but I love the promotion and I find the song to be excellent. The opening riff with both Steve and Don playing a part is fantastic.

    The next Deep Purple clip without Deep Purple!!! They are tired? Bored? So that way they can make clip to all tracks from the album. I really miss clips made in old style. Am I the only one???

    Love it. A brilliant video. Another one. As the album. Superb. All of it.

    Maybe with a little mouth, but people are talking about a new album. It’s surreal. But hey, I think yet that DP is capable of anything. Unbelieveable.

    The best song from the album,and the best song in the era of Steve Morse since the time of “Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming”. A this real DP classic ,in future cover bands perform for years and years on the set list. I think Jon Lord is smiling and pleased with this song. Gillan’s voice is fantastic !, Bravo guys ! ( and Mr Bob Erzin of course !) no surrender !

    Don’s keyboard work on this song is just plain amazing! There have not been many rock tunes of late in 6/8 time… this one is my favorite! OK, the video is neat – now it’s time to move on, we’ve seen enough of the spacesuit!

    Is it only me or is there more than just a nod to Patrick McGoohan’s Prisoner ? (readers of a certain vintage may remember !)
