"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Tube plane

Way back to the past, last century! 

 

The great poet and sax player Ted Milton who formed in 1979  Blurt, a rough band in between punk-rock and funk attitude.
 

 

 

More funky than the more skinny output of NY parodist James Chance, Ted Milton is a grandiose saxophone player, dissonant "à la Charlie Parker", boucing around and some times pure nevrotic sound collagist, as well a great voice screaming with full of energy, reminding The Ex's atmosphere.


here in "Tube plane", recorded live in Berlin, 1980  
with Ted Milton: sax & vocals - Pete Creese: guitar - Jake Milton: drums
