Please read below if you are looking to have a link from this site

We have been receiving many requests to link to other sites from the Budgie Official Site, this has brought us to the decision to take off the links section and replace it with a gig review section, where we will gladly post the odd show review from yourselves. The decision was taken because we cannot accommodate everyone and all links are not suitable, we do not wish to offend or upset anyone so if there is no links page then no one will be offended.
