Stroud’s prodigal son, Ted Milton returns to the own with his iconic eighties band, Blurt. Milton, like his namesake the poet, is a man with his own unique creative expression. Puppeteer-turned-eccentricsaxophonist Ted Milton is perhaps the epitome of warped genius. His nearly tuneful squawks and lyrics shouted like a newspaper seller are as extraordinarily inspired as his song titles, which include ‘My Mother Was a Friend of an Enemy of the People.’ Founded in Stroud in 1980 the band’s compositions are based on repetitious and infectious grooves of solid robotic drumming and minimalist guitar patterns, topped with wild bursts of free form sax and dramatically demonic vocals to form their inimitable trademark. A cult underground institution.
