Charlatans' frontman Tim Burgess to perform in Falmouth
12:00pm Saturday 31st August 2013 in Cornwall
The Charlatans’ frontman, Tim Burgess will be performing a special solo show at the Falmouth Pavilion on Wednesday 18 September.
His new solo album Oh No I Love You, which arguably features some of Burgess' finest music to date and was co-written with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner with contributions from members of Clem Snide, Factory Floor and My Morning Jacket as well as lo fi legend R. Stevie Moore.
It's been a long journey from Manchester to Los Angeles, to a grey part of North East London and Nashville, but the album has had some fabulous praise: The Times concluded that Tim was "running Damon Albarn close for the title of busiest Britpop alumnus" and The Guardian claimed it was "Burgess at his best".
It's fair to say that over the past two years, Tim Burgess has been a very, 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.
That's not to mention his presence on Twitter, where his Tim Peak's Diner has become a virtual meeting place for the music obsessed the world over. This, alongside his regular eclectic DJ sets, led Burgess to the attention of BBC 6 Music, who commissioned him to produce shows on Christmas and New Years Eve. He’s a man in demand and a contemporary British music icon. If you dig music, don’t miss this one.
