Hard Lovin' Man is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow.[1] The album is a deconstruction of the song "Hard Lovin' Man" by Deep Purple from their album Deep Purple in Rock. The first track was recorded live at the Avanto 2000 festival in Helsinki, Finland and was later remixed at Merzbow's home studio. The second track is a studio recording from a month earlier.[2]
