The Bell

Bath, Somerset

21:00 - 23:00



In-between many chairs.


Already renowned (as a puppeteer!) in Walcot in the ‘70s, the poet (Ted) Milton formed Blurt in Stroud in 1979. Minimalist Post-Punk before that even had a name; surreal poetry scaffolded on big rhythms, Milton’s out-there sax and abstract noise. There really was no-one like them then, and that’s pretty much still true.

Probably never actually split (moved to Belgium for a few years…) but their gigs have been getting rarer.

The Bell is a historic free house and music pub on the edge of Bath city centre: it is owned by 518 of its customers, fans and workers under IPS CoOperative rules.
