So…..

Early heavy metal is one of the best kinds of music out there. It really rocks and it’s so freaking raw. I love how this group from Wales recognizably influenced bands like Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, and Soundgarden. I mean, maybe they won’t admit it, but they really sound similar.  At the time, I’m sure that this band from Wales didn’t know that they were doing anything that amazing. On the other hand, maybe they did think they were the best band in the world, like most garage bands do, but somehow the accidents of history made them actually stand out from the rest. Now bands that try to recreate the old heavy metal sound like Wolfmother, etc. really owe their careers to bands like Budgie.

Check out Breadfan. I don’t even know why it’s called “Breadfan”. I’m a fan of bread. Am I a breadfan?

Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage with an intro from Guns N’ Roses’ Welcome to the Jungle and some other stuff…. Even Led Zeppelin……
