Budgie's Tony Bourge Returns After 27 Years

(Classic Rock) Ex-Budgie guitarist Tony Bourge has a new album out, 35 years after leaving the Welsh band and 27 years after his last recorded output with heavy rockers Tredegar.

In May 1973 an unsuspecting world listened in awe as Bourge unleashed the riff to Budgie's Breadfan a song later covered by Metallica. Forty years on, the hugely underrated six-stringer has a new 20-track album named Crank It Up released under the moniker of Anthony Bourge.

Crank It Up contains a wide variety of styles, from riff-based rockers reminiscent of the metal Bourge forged with Budgie, to songs and instrumentals steeped in the blues, to ethereal pop numbers.

The album's Shw Mae Mama is a dark, heavy blues song with a Welsh language chorus that translates as "How are you, Mama?" more on this story
