interesting, but derivative


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


FFS Budgie were a trio, pretty difficult to be driven by anything else, I love Budgie but at no point in their career were they ever cutting edge, they are a superior hard rock band hamstrung by a vocalist who can be best described as unusual


Hmm.. Hendrix was a trio, not really bass driven, same with James Gang and Grand Funk

Cream was a essentially guitar driven , with bass used melodically, but definitely not as spare as Budgie or Free
