Listen to Lauren Laverne's show on BBC Radio 6 Music on Monday (11th April) for the first play of our Record Store Day 12" Trouble Understanding (Norman Cook remix).
The 12” is limited to 1500 copies worldwide find out more and participating stores at recordstoreday.com.
Tim releases his second book Tim Book Two - Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco on 21st July 2016.
Tim Book Two is the follow-up to Telling Stories, the hugely successful memoir of Tim Burgess, lead singer of the Charlatans. It tells of his lifelong passion for vinyl and the shops that sell them.
After his first book, Tim had more to say. But, instead of another autobiography he chose a different way of telling his story. Tim set himself a quest. He would get in touch with people he admired, and ask them to suggest an album for him to track down on his travels, giving an insight into what makes them tick. It would also offer a chance to see how record shops were faring in the digital age – one in which vinyl was still a much-treasured format.
Tim assembled his cast of characters, from Iggy Pop to Johnny Marr, David Lynch to Cosey Fanni Tutti. Texts, phone calls, emails and handwritten notes went out. Here is the tender, funny and surprising story of what came back.
