Fans of Beefheart, Pere Ubu and the Near Jazz Experience gather round – the first LP in 35 years from Redditch’s lairiest will scratch the prog-punk, Dadaist itch that other abrasive avant-gardists can’t. Growling, prowling and poetic, frontman The Shend is at his most frenetic on Blurred, going fruitily out of control on the jazz-swing assault of Bigband, a symphony of saxophonic devastation. (610)
