About this item

The Charlatans frontman originally met New Yorker Peter Gordon in 2012 and they decided then on a music collaboration. Burgess had been a long time fan of Gordon’s work with Arthur Russell and The Love Of Life Orchestra. The album was produced by Gordon in New York and features many of his and Tim’s previous collaborators: Ernie Brooks who played with Arthur Russell on the first Modern Lovers album, trombone player Peter Zummo, conga player Mustafa Ahmed and Nik Void from Factory Floor.

"What I love about working with Peter is that in the late 70s with Peter Zummo and Arthur Russell and all the New York cats at The Kitchen, they were all making futuristic records," Burgess enthuses. "Now Peter in his mid-60s is still looking to do that. It's the world that I want to be in."

STAFF COMMENTS

Laura says: If you're only aware of Tim Burgess from his Charlatans releases, then you may be surprised by this album. Working with veteran composer and musician Peter Gordon, Tim explores more experimental / avant soundscapes, with his softly sung vocals floating over pulsing beats while keyboards bubble and whoosh, saxophones wail and trombone, congas and guitars drift in and out of the mix.
