    SIX TON BUDGIE was formed from the ashes of post BUDGIE outfit TREDEGAR, by original Budgie & Tredegar drummer Ray Phillips, who also played with WOMAN, FREEZ & TITUS OATS in the late '70's.
    Six Ton Budgie was actually the original 1967 name that the first Budgie line-up went under, before eventually shortening it in the early '70's.
    The new Six Ton Budgie was formed in Gwent in Wales in 1992 with fellow ex-Tredegar members Jason Marsh on Bass and Sam Lees on Guitar.
    Following initial recording sessions, Phillips' son Justin was installed on guitar, and another ex-TREDEGAR member, and former PHANTASM bassist, Tom Prince came into the fold too.
    The band's first album, 1995's "Unplucked!", featured 15 songs, including five re-recorded classic BUDGIE numbers.
    As well as handling drums and vocals, Phillips senior also contributed Guitar and Bass parts on some of the songs.
    Some recordings featuring the band's original personnel were also included on the disc, which was released through the band's own Axel Records in conjuction with the NWoBHM specialist label Vinyl Tap Records.
    This album was followed in 1996 by their second, "Ornithology Volume 1", again released through Vinyl Tap/Axel.
    With both of the discs long out of print, Phillips self-released a further Six Ton Budgie album in 2007 entitled "A Bird's Eye View".
    This disc compiled tracks from the two original albums in remastered and remixed form, with additional instrumentation added, and also included four previously unreleased songs.
    This brought the curtain down on Six Ton Budgie, as the band had folded before the record's release.
    In 2010, as work neared completion on his debut solo album "Revelations", Ray returned to the stage with the RAY PHILLIPS BAND, a new band also featuring his former Tredegar and Six Ton Budgie band mate Tom Prince on Bass alongside hotshot young Guitarist Adam Healey.
    The band are now gigging extensively, and Ray's solo record, on which he plays the majority of the instruments himself, was released recently.
