Friday Night Soundcheck with Tim Burgess + Hatcham Social + David Mumford!
It’s fair to say that over the past two years, Tim Burgess has been a very, busy man. In that time, The Charlatans singer has completed Telling Stories, an autobiography for Penguin Books. He’s launched the bold O Genesis record label, releasing a series of 7″ singles that reflects Burgess’ own diverse musical interests and his phenomenal crate-digging instincts.
He releases his new album – ‘Oh No I Love You’ on October 1st. Influenced by Arthur Russell, Bill Callahan and Bob Dylan as much as Lambchop and the local greats, it also features electronic input from Gabe Gurnsey, drummer with London avant-techno group Factory Floor. It’s still very Tim Burgess, the sum total, like that autobiography, of his life and musical loves.
This return to the UK after a few years spent largely based in California coincided with a decision to finally give in to pestering from Penguin that he put the story of his life into print. But Burgess wasn’t content only to look into the past – he wanted to revitalise his present, and look to the future.
With the release of ‘Oh No I Love You’ which arguably features some of Burgess’ finest music to date, he is also busy with his regular eclectic DJ sets, which led Burgess to the attention of BBC 6 Music who commissioned him to produce shows on Christmas and New Years Eve. It’s been a long journey from Manchester to Los Angeles, to a grey part of North East London and Nashville…
