I don't see why not.
Quoted from Mitch:
Everyone in this thread does realize this is just another o-din troll thread right? Not sure why people are taking it seriously.
If that is your opinion which obviously is not everybody's, instead of coming here and shitting on me, this thread, and most of all Budgie, why not just drain it and find a thread with subject matter you can better understand or relate too?
Perhaps this one?
Quoted from Darcy:
My parents always said, 'Learn something new everyday'. Thanks O-din. Never heard of them and that they were from Wales.
I may not have heard of them either if I hadn't been hanging out in the Musixbox record store when I was young. That place was a great way to take in all different kinds of music as each guy that worked there was into something different.
It was a Scottish guy named Doug with a heavy accent that told me "I know what kind of music you like and you should definitely check out Budgie" I said which one, and he sent me home with this one. I ended up with all their albums up to Impeckable when my musical interests started to change.
Quoted from Gryszzz:
Man I had one of those like, suitcases for tapes, and someone busted out my window and stole em cause like a dumb ass kid...I left it in plain sight. That was a 1990 lesson.
It was just a year or two ago that I finally thru my suitcase of cassettes in the shit can. They had already all seen better days 30 years ago.
I was tripping over chairs in the backyard late last night when I got the genius idea to start this thread.
I saw them too with Wall of Voodoo in 80 or 81. WOV killed it that night, XTC not so much. Besides maybe the last couple songs they did, the sound quality or performance in general was terrible.
I don't think Mexican Radio wasn't even out yet when I saw WOV. But we did get this.
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:
But things were very Crazy in NY, then!
I heard about NY. Crazy here too, scurrying around to see as many of the Urgh and Decline of Western Civilization shows as we could. LA was as punk as it got in the late 70s and early 80s. Heck my hometown in OC had it's own scene with DI, Adolescents, Social D, among others. Good times indeed.
Nope, no Dead shows. But I did find quite a few tourers camped out at a gas station I worked at when they played Irvine in the 80s. Kind of gave me a feel of the experience. I was more into hard rock and punk.
Our buddy Don (terapin99) who passed away recently had offered to take me to see the New Years eve show this last year, but I passed. Apparently he had a rough time getting thru all of it as well from what he told me.
Black Flag was always gigging around here and I did see Slayer once back in the day.
So much for the "no ones ever heard of them" comment.
I've always looked at music kind of like I look at pinball. You can just take what is spoon fed to you and what every body else says is good, or you can dig a little deeper and find something you really like instead.
For those that never heard of or heard Budgie before, now you have. If you've been paying attention. And I'd buy it if done right. .
