Subby here.

Got to see these guys once in the late 70s. Outstanding songwriters and musicians.
So glad to see this greenlit.

I never heard of them, but with thousands of bands out there, there is no way I could know all of them.

Not my normal preference, but I like it.  Thanks for the recommendation subby, though I should have already checked them out.  Our old QA manager used to alphabetically code-name releases after metal bands that were also animals, and Budgie was one of them.

Whoa, I hadn't heard that in ages. Thanks subby.
 
2013-06-09 09:26:44 PM
Had never heard of them 'till I played Brutal Legend. Thanks Tim Schafer.

I've never heard the original, even though I knew it was by Budgie, but Metallica's cover of it is my favorite song by them.

Have we reached the end of the list for band videos?

It's gone full circle now. I found out about Budgie in the Fark Music Tab, and now we're back to Budgie on Fark.

These guys and Cactus played some extremely heavy music for their time. Glad to see I'm not the only one that appreciates where metal really came from.

Wow that was awesome!

Budgie has a surprisingly solid catalogue. A few clunkers here and their first five releases are damned good. Thanks for the post.
 
2013-06-09 11:34:49 PM
Can't say I'm a huge fan, but I break out the album every now and then.

The other track on the album I really dig.

And as others have said, Metallica can rip a mean cover.

I'd never heard of Budgie until I heard Metallica's cover of this song.  Great song, cool vid, thanks subs!

Good stuff--thanks!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Glad you enjoyed.

A couple more Budgie tracks before I turn in:

Napoleon Bona Part 1 & 2 (Gets heavy around 2:35)

Man ...that song really really sounds like it was written by Mike Nesmith

No, really, it does.

Also, I love Mike Nesmith's songs

My father in law turned me onto Budgie.

Apparently Budgie was big in Poland back in the day, and they used to pass their records around.

"Rape of the Locks" is a great song.

/YOU WANT TO CUT MY HAIR!!!!!!

Lars and James are both giant douches but there are about a dozen bands (Budgie, Diamond Head, Mercyful Fate + King Diamond. Glen Danzig and whatever the hell Jerry Only has masquerading as the Misfits, Killing Joke) that were either split up barely holding that are still recording and touring today largely because Metallica introduced them to a new audience

dang I got ripped for posting The Devil's Blood a few weeks back but everyone is okay with this being this week's submission? You people are fickle.

Some atmospheric black metal for you this week:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arsHpfOAmxw  New Summoning
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYGgF7FOmVU Umbrio, some raw black metal from Spain with some awesome Spanish guitar
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3i-ayVK0KA  A friend of mine's atmospheric metal project. It's a demo and there are some faults but with her raw talent this project can has great possibilities

I'm really enjoying the hell out of Old Morning's Dawn. I love Stronghold unabashedly but I'm ambivalent on everything else - they seem to struggle to balance the two aspects of their sound - this one gets it right though)

and we are done in one.
 
2013-06-10 04:19:57 PM
the beginning riff sounds a lot like red hot chilli peppers' "give it away".

Still, great stuff.
 
2013-06-10 04:21:42 PM
Excuse me, RHCP's "around the world".

HST's Dead Carcass: These guys and Cactus played some extremely heavy music for their time. Glad to see I'm not the only one that appreciates where metal really came from.


THIS THIS THIS.

Burke Shelley had a voice I never could get used to, but DAMN, he was a great bass player!

Metallica did a good job with "Breadfan" and "Crash Course in Brain Surgery."

I have their "In for the Kill" and their 'best of'* records.

Criminally underrated for sure.

What genre(s) would you classify them under? Progressive Blues?
Wishbone Ash + early Rush ?

/ * that ' best of ' record is probably the longest single LP I own.... unfortunately the volume is lower than original songs on the orig LPs in order to fit all the tracks on there.
(unfortunate because you just wanna blast it! )
 
2013-06-11 01:05:28 AM
also, some of the wittiest song titles this side of Brand X.

Third_Uncle_Eno: What genre(s) would you classify them under? Progressive Blues?

Heard them described as "Rush meets Black Sabbath" years ago. Still seems pretty apt.

And yeah, "Breadfan" is one of my top favorite song titles ever. "Crash Course in Brain Surgery," "You're the Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk," "In the Grip of a Tyre Fitter's Hand"... all nice and silly yet plenty evocative.
