Maximilian Theodor Eider - Max Eider (real name, Peter Millson) is a guitarist and songwriter.

He studied English Literature at University College, Oxford, graduating in Trinity Term 1980. He played guitar with Pat Fish in college in bands such as The Institution, Wow Federation and The Tonix. Then in The Jazz Butcher from June 1982 until 27 November 1986, when after an alcohol-fuelled altercation with Fish, he left the band. He went on to record a solo album, The Best Kisser in the World, which mixes up-temp indie-pop numbers ("Let Somebody Down" and "Quiet Lives") with songs in a moodier, jazz-influenced style. He also played on recordings by others, including Songs from Another Season by David J.

He rejoined the Jazz Butcher for what was billed as the last ever Jazz Butcher gig on 21 December 1995, and has performed and recorded with Fish since, on the live album Glorious and Idiotic (2000) and the studio album Rotten Soul. 2002 saw the release of a second solo album, Hotel Figueroa, and a third, Max Eider III, appeared in 2007. In 2010 Eider released his fourth solo album Disaffection on Tundraducks Records.

Max is still an active participent of the ongoing J.B.C. (Jazz Butcher Conspiracy) where 2012 saw Pat Fish and himself record and release the completely fan funded album "Last Of The Gentleman Adventurers".
