Man Cave Update (Deep Purple & Babymetal Posters – The Eternal Flame of Rock Captured)

Picked up the big Deep Purple/Babymetal art (as in two huge posters from Czech publication Spark joined as one) yesterday, and it now hangs in a corner close to a framed 1981 Whitesnake Poster from my Deep Purple Freak Society days down in the music room/library. There is a symbolic value in this work as Deep Purple belongs to the first generation of Hard Rock bands that came up in the late 1960s (and really picked up speed with the “In Rock” album in 1970), and Babymetal represents the now as the most experimental thing out there today, borrowing from just about every genre in Rock/Metal and elsewhere (the spirit of freedom and hard core talent runs deep in both, although they are worlds apart in many ways).

Cost me about 250 dollars to frame these but the end result is actually pretty awesome. The Deep Purple poster was printed in Spark #4 2017 along with a major cover story on their “Infinite” album, and you have that famous polar expedition look that they went with and the logo. The Babymetal poster was printed in Spark #8 2015 (these publications can still be ordered online), and you have a nice 2013 shot with the gals doing the Fox Sign. Again, with the logo. I really think it is a great look, a fabulous mix.

But here is the thing. As long as Deep Purple is still out there, they both share a brief moment of space and time in this wonderful musical galaxy of ours. And both are certainly a source of much joy, albeit in different ways.
