Tim Burgess is coming to Think Tank? on 1st May 2020. Burgess, who made his name as the frontman of The Charlatans, has consistently contributed to various music projects throughout the years, including his primary band…
While his contemporaries of the Britpop era often subjected themselves to tabloid worthy antics and tumultuous band breakups, Burgess has maintained both integrity and mystique; quietly creating a rich discography of both solo and collaborative works.
Burgess joined The Charlatans in 1989. In the early 90s, the band became known for singles such as ‘One To Another’ and ‘The Only One I Know’. The Charlatans were initially regarded by some as a group jumping onto the Madchester bandwagon. However they stood out from the likes of The Stone Roses and happy Mondays thanks to their longevity and novel combination of innovation paired with their fascination with 60s psychedelia.
As well as The Charlatans, Burgess has applied his musical talents to multiple projects. The artist has also turned his hand to writing, his latest book ‘One Two Another’, an exploration into Burgess’ lyrics and writing process.
Catch the musical genius at Think Tank? next May. Tickets are one sale from 10 am on 29th November 2019.
