8-bit Purple

This collection of little ditties is presented to your by our semi-irregular Weird Covers column.

It is available through Apple Music and probably some other digital vendors.

The evil demon sitting on my shoulder is whispering that this is just a bunch of midi files plunked off them old interwebs and rendered in appropriate style. Shush, little devil, shush!

Thanks to Matman for the heads up.

    This is great …somehow , I can see some sort of Deep Purple rave in the 90s , where they’re playing all these

    No one knows how DP music will be presented at the next platform in 50 years from now but it looks like we heading more towards contactless music.

    Those computer renditions are a heinous crime. Where is that STUXNET cyber attack software when you need it?

    I prefer more organic versions, done in immaculate taste and with best intentions.

    This is rubbish,
    I can’t imagine that any real DP fan is waiting for something like this.
    This dosn’t sound like DP at all.

    On second or third listen, it’s actually quite amusing/revealing as it really condenses the DP melodies to a bare-bones-minimalism. Kind of explains how some of DP’s songs are “engineered” – not a put-down, as a Deutscher (and son of a construction engineer) I always found the obvious ‘Ingenieurwesen’ in Purple’s music appealing. I missed that in Led Zep for instance, the components and construction weren’t as clear.

    These make me laugh and they’re not bad for what they are…

    Demon’s Eye almost sort of works…

    Thanks to late 80s/early 90s production quality, the S&M era songs sound like they were meant for this format. šŸ¤£

    I’d like to see Paicey in a reaction video to Burn
