Minton’s range on this disc [A Doughtnut in One Hand] runs from the sounds of a man choking on his own vomit to the sounds that grandpa makes when you finally decide to pull the plug on his respirator. He’s like a little kid who’s contact-miked himself playing yo-yo with his saliva… Minton forces us to ponder the musical qualities of noises that we’d rather not deal with and for that fact alone, makes this an important recording…

Kenneth Goldsmith

Phil Minton is best known for his startling vocal improvisations. On his new solo CD, this sensible looking man proffers 37 thin slices of his unfettered soul. Not long ago these croaks, burps, high-pitched exhalations, deep-throated drones and shreds of garbled half-language would have seen Minton either burnt or hailed as an emissary of God.

Stewart Lee
The Sunday Times

One of the greatest pleasures of the album [Glad Day] is the opportunity it brings to once again hear the remarkable vocalist Phil Minton. Minton is the most thrilling singer we have, with a messianic passion so fierce that his performances glow as brightly as Blake’s own tyger.
