I’d like to start this review by saying that Ted Milton is a crazy man. The world needs crazy people so we’re off to a good start with this one. I really shouldn’t like Ted Milton or Blurt (the band he is the only surviving member of) because he plays the sax and there is no instrument I struggle with more than the saxophone. It generally goes right through me, but every single Blurt or Ted Milton tune I’ve heard I liked. It’s very similar to me not liking cheese but loving pizza.
Anyway, this is a limited 7” on Blank Editions (next single by Thurston Moore) limited to 250 copies. The stereotypical Milton sound is present here. It’s nigh on always cathartic, with shouty vocals, an edgy and nervous sounding beat, and some shiny skronk. Milton’s vocals sound a little on the unhinged side but they’re held together by the relentless beat and guitars. It’s an energetic beast for sure.
The flipside is equally unhinged encased in a Factoryesque new wave tune with French muffled vocals. Oh and there’s some smoothish sax in there too. Ted Milton is a jazz mutant and you should love him like I love pizza (but not cheese).
