That's a bit rich coming from someone who likes Budgie.


Actually 68/69 Budgie was ahead of its time.

Davy was in his Newley phase then, wasn't he?


What are you basing that on - demo's, live shows? The first album wasn't released until 1971.

I like the description in the NME Book Of Rock Vol 2 back in the 70's when they called Budgie "a somewhat pedestrian heavy riffing outfit".

If you like that kinda thing, good luck to you.




formed in '67,

pedestrian riffing is bass driven as opposed to Zep, Purple, and Sabbath

and different than Free's bass driven sound


I know they formed in 1967. I just looked it up when you said they were ahead of their time in 1968-69 and I thought they must have released albums much earlier than I'd thought.

I checked. They didn't.

So, as a matter of interest, on what then are you basing your view that they were ahead of their time in 68-69?
