Tim Burgess at Aye Write Festival
March 17, 2017
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow
The follow up to Charlatans front man Tim Burgess’s critically acclaimed memoir, Telling Stories is the marvellously titled Tim Book Two – a tale of his lifelong passion for records, the shops that sell them, and the people who make them. For this ‘Difficult second book’ Tim set himself a quest. He would get in touch with people he admired (Iggy Pop, Johnny Marr, David Lynch, Cosey Fanni Tutti) 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. Come and hear the tender, funny and surprising story of what came back.
