This album was released in October 1980 on Active Records, a sublabel of RCA Records. It is the band's eighth studio album, and the first without original guitarist Tony Bourge, who left the band in 1978. The album was produced by Martin Birch, who had previously worked with Deep Purple and Iron Maiden. The album was a commercial success, reaching number 35 on the UK Albums Chart. It was well-received by critics, with many praising the band's heavier sound and Birch's production. The album features the singles "Forearm Smash", "Hellbender", and "Gunslinger".
Power Supply is a solid album from Budgie, and it is a good example of their heavier sound. If you are a fan of hard rock or heavy metal, then you should definitely check out this album.
