Budgie - The MCA Albums 1973-1975 album review
Three remastered monsters from Cardiff’s greatest exports. Who’s a pretty noise, then?
Throughout the 70s, the unfashionable Budgie were as oddball as their name. Although specialising in heads-down, no-nonsense riffage, their albums all included acoustic interludes and softer songs which, by accident or design, made everything else sound even heavier. Additionally, they wrote the most ridiculous song titles ever. (Don’t waste your time looking for a better pair than You’re The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk and In The Grip Of A Tyrefitter’s Hand.)
