To accompany the forthcoming publication of Tim Book Two: Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco by Tim Burgess (published by Faber on July 21st), Tim and cover artist Pete Fowler have collaborated with celebrated British audio equipment manufacturer Rega to produce a one off, special edition Tim Book Two turntable, featuring Pete’s striking artwork.

The turntable will be travelling the country on Tim Book Tour (dates below), taking centre stage with Tim and an incredible list of special guests, to broadcast a selection of music featured in the book. Guests on the tour include Cosey Fanni Tutti, Chris Carter, Sharon Horgan, Andrew Weatherall, Shaun Keaveny, Gary Neville, Stuart Maconie, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert and Ian Rankin.


Tim Book Tour will also be bringing along Vinyl Adventures, Tim’s very own traveling record shop.

Vinyl Adventures will be stocking records featured in the book, Tim Book Two: The Soundtrack, vinyl releases from Tim’s record label O Genesis and of course books. Tim will be doing a signing session behind the counter in Vinyl Adventures every night.

Finally each night there will be an exhibition of ‘broken vinyl artworks’ of the album covers in the book, including Sandinista by The Clash, The Slider by T-Rex and Born In The USA by Bruce Springsteen.

We hope to see you there.
