NEW STUDIO ALBUM "inFinite"
LYRIC VIDEO FOR FIRST SONG "TIME FOR BEDLAM" LAUNCHED.
Ian Gillan has said:
"If you take it literally you may, quite reasonably, think the 'Finite' part of the word describes the life of Deep Purple, with a clear beginning and a nebulous end; but what of the 'in' bit? The word infinite is a three-dimensional double edged sword. It describes something that goes on forever in all directions; not unlike its temporal equivalent 'Eternal' What's that all about?
Stephen Hawking declared (in 'A brief History of Time') that, before the Big Bang there was nothing. That would put the kybosh on the idea of our universe being Infinite, as he provides a starting point, which is not acceptable to the concept. So, Hawking's universe in 'Finite'; by definition; whether he agrees or not.
Ironically, he is quite wrong (scientists always are eventually), therefore the Universe is infinite, which means it will never end, and also means that it never started, and the corollary to that of course is that we don't exist.
There is a metaphysical solution to all this, but it will have to wait until the tour is over because (thanks heavens) there are only 24 hours in a day (for the time being) or 10 hours in a metric day. More on that later..."

Deep Purple "Vincent Price" Official Music Video
A video is born. Vincent Price stalks the flickering frame and someone else also, as it turns out, but all will be explained below. Click HERE. For Wordographic heaven peruse the full wordography set for NOW What?!. This is situated but a short scroll from here.
As musical idea rose from the depths and began to coagulate it was given the working title of 'Vincent Price'; it sounded like the sound track to a horror movie. When Roger and I were tackling the lyrics we started with a list. Something we imagined would be drawn up by the director of a Hammer Horror movie; a list of essential ingredients for any self-respecting Vincent Price movie of the 1960's.
So: Creaking doors, dungeons, rattling chains, howling dogs, dripping blood, vampires, thunder and lightning, sacrificial virgins and zombies to die for, etc.
And there you have it; the lyrics in a casket, manic laughter, fade.
IG says: 'It didn't enter my mind to include a pole dancer in the lyrics - silly me.'
wordogs are rolling in. Here's everything from NOW What?!, in randomised ig order. Ian on (eventually, probably, who knows) everything - the complete lyrics, in good time.
It's thrilling, the whole lot of it. Critical acclaim for from the renowned Buffalo Report. Click HERE.
