- Dec 2 8:50 PMI'm pissed that I never got to see Budgie, dammit!!!
I know that they have toured over here in the states before but when?
I think they used to do a show or two in Texas each year recently for
some reason. All their stuff is great and when they came back in the
80's with Power Supply it was a great return but then they really got
too keyboardy-commercial for my taste after that.
Camel I saw open for BOC in NYC for their first LP, Mirage. That was
a good band and seeing them made me a fan. I bought most of their
Nektar I know I saw a couple times, one memorable show opening for
BeBop Deluxe in '76 and they had the whole trippy lightshow thing
going on. "Magic Is A Child" was my favorite of theirs and I always
play the first song on there near Xmas because the opening has a
total Xmas mood to it.
Next week MSG is playing within driving distance here and I MUST go!
It has beeen too long since my last dose of SCHENKER live.
