Nick Simper & Nasty Habits - Live At Szene Vienna (CD/DVD)
(Angel Air - 2012)

Th original bassist of Deep Purple, Nick Simper caught in concert with a cracking classic rock outfit called Nasty Habits.

These guys are damn tight and perform material to a sell-out audience of material from the 1st 3 Deep Purple albums at the Szene in Vienna on 8th March, 2011. Mr. Simper seems real at home here but I don't know why he keeps having to mention the band name so much - lol.

Highlights of the show include long forgotten never played songs like 'Mandrake Root'; the ballad 'Lalena'; 'Wring That Neck'; 'Kentucky Woman' and of course the one that started the ball rolling in the first place - 'Hush'.

One for the hardest of hardcore Purple fans.
