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.

  • Dirty Songs Play Dirty Songs

    Directed and produced by David Toop, DIRTY SONGS PLAY DIRTY SONGS reacts against our poisonous present, inspired anti-nostalgically by similarly reactive records and live performances from the 20th century: Soft Machine and Pink Floyd 1967-68, The MC5’s Kick Out the Jams, The Stooges, Sun Ra’s Cosmic Tones For Mental Therapy and The Heat Is On by The Isley Brothers.

    DIRTY SONGS PLAY DIRTY SONGS is the musical offshoot of a project conceived by artist Maxime Rossi, originating in (among other things) speculations on the (then unreleased) legendary Pink Floyd “John Latham” recordings (1967) and FBI investigations (1964) into subversive and obscene messages supposedly buried within the recorded lyrics of The Kingsmen’s “Louie Louie”. Developed through conversations between Maxime Rossi and David Toop and through support from Fondation Fiminco & MRAC, these ideas metamorphosed into the band and recordings known as DIRTY SONGS, existing both as audio recordings and audio-visual elements of Maxime Rossi’s installation Christmas On Earth Continued, exhibited at MRAC in November 2017.

    DIRTY SONGS is David Toop (bass, guitar, digital electronics, VCS3 synth), Phil Minton (voices), Evan Parker (soprano and tenor saxophones), Steve Beresford (Farfisa organ, VCS3 synth), Mark Sanders (drums).

    21 track DL 17 track CD 16 track LP.
