Dandies in the Aspic

Uncut magazine had a short mention about Deep Purple and fashion in the late sixties in their December 2010 issue with quote from Jon Lord:

That leather coat cost more than I’d earned in my entire life. It was all bought one mad afternoon at Mr. Fish. Working-class lads being dressed by a top designer, we weren’t going to say no. We wanted to be a progressive band but we didn’t know how. I remember thinking it was the most wonderful time, with total freedom

Thanks to Yvonne Osthausen for the info.

    Weird how perfectly they are dressed to take part in the ‘Vincent Price’ video. Especially ‘Count Evens’….

    Even weirder is the fact that the first 3 comments posted reflect the same thing. Looks like the video has made an impression…..

    Men’s fashion of the time left a great deal to be desired–but I feel that women’s fashion reached its pinnacle in the late 60’s with mini-skirts, scarves, go-go boots, bright colors, and big hair. Today, it’s tattoos, a ragged look, and anorexia. Perhaps your preference is merely based on what was the norm growing up.
