PURPLE - The 99 Second Song

Music Television presents Purple
Presently playing several sold out shows in Europe, fresh out of Beaumont Texas is a hard rocking trio named Purple. The members are Joe "Prankster" Cannariato on bass, Taylor Busby on guitar & vocals and Hanna Brewer on drums and vocals.

This group happens to be one of our very favorite emerging rock bands whose three best videos we featured on September 20, 2014. (Click here to watch those videos.)

Purple isn't likely to be a band that is going to heal the world or anything, but the fact that they really know how to have fun is what is so admirable. Big fat kudos for that in this world where too many artists seem to dilute their sound and sell their soul before they have any fun or rock the way they want to.

An old real deal rock star once said, "You can't be a rock star without contempt... Without contempt, you'll be a pop star at best". And yes, there is a difference! For instance, acts who bend their sound to the whims or wants of others such as label heads, supposed producers or the self-proclaimed Moral Majority, have no contempt. Is there a real deal rock star worthy streak of contempt flowing through the veins of this group, especially Hanna Brewer, that is pushing them to stretch into their own unknown depths of letting loose, turning up the amps and screaming? It's a strong possibility.

One of the lines in the song is: Give me the love, but not the disease! If that's not a rock star mantra...

Purple is an old Rolling Stones song: "I know, it's only rock & roll, but I like it, like it, yes I do..."

Below is Purple's latest video to their song titled Thirteen from their debut album named 409. Very interesting how the whole song and video is only 99 seconds long, and it's not one of those teaser videos. Enjoy! GC
