Budgie - [1972] - Squawk (UK Hard Rock)

***< Enjoy! >***


  1. Sin does not to know what is this for band,and does not appreciate Budgie - it blasphemy. Absolutely cult band with a distinctive sound and the singer's voice with a very rarely encountered tones. The first heavy metal group which,has toured in Poland in 1982.

    Budgie was established in Cardiff (Wales) in 1967, composed of bassist / vocalist Burke Shelley, guitarist Brian Goddard, drummer Ray Phillips under the name Budgie Droppings (apparently the name is taken from the TV series.) contested by the pastor,who 'make available', hall to attempts for musicians. Soon to musicians joined a second guitarist Tony Bourge whereas Goddard left the group.

    This band really stand out with the 70s crowd. They move like no other, they rock like no other, and they feel the music like no other. There is some really great soul put into their music by each and every one of the three members. The music screams at me, or better put, SQUAWKS at me. Though I haven't listened to all of their albums, I can't imagine them going bad, if they keep their style. Pain medicine is weak compared to the abilities of this band. They rock like the wind, and roll like the sea. They jam like the earth , and prog like the inner flame inside all of us.

  2. Burke Shelley is one of the highlights of the album. It roars like the throat of a monstrous whale. It rams the music forward into stardom. And it fills in perfectly where it is needed in the music. His voice is as eerie as the wind whistling upon the nooks and crannies of a mountain. His voice is as a flute. Strong and tremendous, but very pleasant to hear indeed. He keeps attacking the song with his voice as if every breathe he speaks he were actually eating the song up, grokking the music. His voice is soft cheese to my ears, and his bass is a fine donut.

    Tony Bourge adds a drop of whiskey to the music with his drowning guitar. His passion show fruitfully, and he truly is a beast. It jams with the infernal light of ingenuity. The guitar and bass truly act as throughout the entire album so well that you would think it was one guitar on one really fat neck.

    Ray Philips is a true drummer. He knows where to put the beats. And his drums are a true backbone to this music. THe drums are bloodbrothers with the bass completely. They work so well together. The true warriors, and barbarians dissappeared, rebirthing as rock and rollers! So every rock and roll fan is a true is a warrior at heart

    Initially, the team was inspired by the achievements of the Beatles, but soon began to aim to make a more powerful sound in the style of Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. Up until 1971,band had the status of an amateur, playing in clubs in Wales. The breakthrough came when recordings were handed Budgie known producer Rodger Bain. This allows the band signed a contract with a big record label MCA and able to enter the studio to record material for their debut album.

    Album simply called Budgie appeared in 1971,effort by MCA. The album was recorded in rooms having an extraordinary acoustics of the Welsh studio Rockfield Studios, under the ear great producer Roger Bain (such as Black Sabbath) and was recorded in four days live in the studio for so-called. (eight path of) tape recorder. Do not look far attributed, to him Budgie name. Anyway, the basis the band's name, lies idea of ranked by whose she had to express "something light"on the principle opposites of musical style for the which the band undoubtedly keep up.
