Peter has also given us a translation of an article from the ECLIPSED Magazine from Germany 11/2010:
After his leaving from D.P., Nick Simper recorded 2 great albums with “WARHORSE” and later on some mainstream projects. Together with the Austrian Band “NASTY HABITS”, Simper worked on important songs from the 1st DEEP PURPLE Lineup and brought it with the Youngsters on stage.
The result is amazing, cause they performed the old songs with a lot of feeling, joy of playing and power. “Emmaretta” is steaming, “Chasing Shadows” is played with drive and a 60´s atmosphere, “Lalena” is beautifully through the lyric phrases- and “Hush” they played also of course. Believe it or not- this lineup sounds more authentic then the actual lineup from DEEP PURPLE.
