“We love bands like Deep Purple, Aerosmith, Mountain… but it’s a long list, and although we’re very much inspired by the music of the 70’s we don’t want to live there.” – Jack Styles
— Dave Ling – Classic Rock magazine
South Londoners Vambo are pleased to release their much loved live rendition of Deep Purple’s classic ‘Burn’ – packed with raw energy from their legendary live shows.
“If you’ve ever been to our show then you’ll know we simply bleed Deep Purple – since Dave Ling at Classic Rock referenced it we thought it was ’bout time to release the recording of the live performance!”
When Dave told us we’re getting our mug in the magazine we lost our sh*t – collectively been reading Classic Rock since forever. After getting a strong 8/10 review from them on the debut album we’re so buzzed to get a page spread and talk about the band.
“I’m torn between the Deep Purple albums ‘Machine Head’ & ‘Burn’, but David Coverdale is one of my idols so i must pick ‘Burn.”
“Its title track was the first cover that we ever did, and we still include it in our live set. that song holds such significant value to Vambo, it’s influenced us in a lot of ways.”
