"Born in 1943, musician, poet and self-confessed 'performance junkie' Ted Milton had been around several creative blocks before meeting Tony Wilson in 1978. As a verse writer, his work appeared in the Paris Review and Children of Albion: Poetry of the Underground in Britain (1969), while as a left-field puppeteer in the Seventies he performed with Mr Pugh's Puppet Theatre and the Blue Show, as well as supporting Ian Dury on tour in 1978. He also contributed a puppetry scene to Terry Gilliam's 1977 comic film Jabberwocky. Few early Factory artists could boast such a colourful background.
