The book Time To Remember: Budgie’s Heavy Revolution 1980–2010 has been released.

The final instalment in a trilogy based on the influential Welsh rock band features contributions from band members, roadies, promoters and photographers, as well as anecdotes from late guitarist John Thomas, who died in March this year.

The follow-up to 2014’s In Pecking Order: Budgie 1974–79 also includes previously unseen photos from their 1982 tour of Poland, then part of the Communist Eastern Bloc – two years before Iron Maiden made their groundbreaking debut in the country.

Time To Remember: Budgie’s Heavy Revolution 1980-2010 can be purchased via the book’s official website (opens in new tab).

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
