Buy Online The Charlatans - Between 10th & 11th (Expanded Edition)

The second album by the British alternative rock band The Charlatans “Between 10th and 11th” was originally released on 23rd March 1992. and features the UK Top 20 hit (and biggest US single) “Weirdo”, as well as singles “Tremolo Song” and “I Don’t Want To See The Sights”.

When Tim Burgess isn’t busy hosting his Twitter listening parties (if you haven’t already, make sure you check them out HERE) or playing as a solo artist, he’s once again riding high with indie icons The Charlatans and to celebrate thirty years since the release of their seminal second album ‘Between 10th and 11th’, the Manchester lads are bringing out a new Expanded Edition.

Between 10th and 11th was originally released in the Spring of 1992 and include such game changing singles as ‘Tremelo Song’ which would become their biggest selling song to the US to date. Criticism within and without settled on Flood’s production style as well, his crisp, technically sharp abilities seem to go against the band’s natural flow. In hindsight, though,it is much stronger than its reputation, with many fans proclaiming it their favorite. It’s partly due to Burgess more up-front vocals.

Similarly, Rob Collins keyboards stand out more, either shading or leading the songs perfectly. “Weirdo,” the album’s lead single and strongest point, has a brilliant lead organ break from Collins and series of great funk stabs that became his strongest performance ever. Equally fine is the electric piano start to “Tremolo Song,” leading to a deep Blunt bass and sassy flow of a song. Mark Collins also fill out their parts equally well, with Flood’s production strengthening and creating excellent arrangements for everyone as a whole. His numerous touches are really something, from the sudden shift to buried/flanged production on “Ignition” to “Subtitle”‘s atmospheric mixing and burbling bass. Other highlights include the string-laden charge of “Can’t Even Be Bothered” and the concluding “No One (Not Even the Rain)”.
‘Between 10th and 11th’ (Expanded Edition) will include a remaster of the original album, plus plenty of bonus material in the form of the entire live disc devoted to their heralded 1991 Chicago gig know as Isolation 21.2.91. – with even more on the bonus CD!

The Band:
Tim Burgess – lead vocals
Mark Collins – guitars
Rob Collins – Mellotron, Hammond organ, piano, backing vocals
Martin Blunt –Bass guitar
Jon Brookes – drums

Tim Burgess unveils fresh cut “The Mall”

Tim Burgess is back with a further new single “The Mall”, a second taster of his forthcoming album I Love The New Sky.

“The Mall” arrives after last month’s lead single and album opener “Empathy For The Devil”Burgess says of his new single, “The mall is like a state of mind – everything and nothing is there. It induces a kind of torpor. Even the process of going between floors is assisted by moving staircases. Shop windows are hypnotic but you don’t have to take part in anything. Malls are a great leveller – class and status disappear. They are like a waking dream, an altered state. A kind of limbo. Plus they are handy if you need new shoes or a doughnut.”

I Love The New Sky marks a different chapter for Burgess, who wrote all 12 tracks on the album himself. He says, “In the past, I’ve written collaboratively. (2012’s) Oh No I Love You was written with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner in Nashville, and then Same Language, Different Worlds was a collaboration with Peter Gordon who had worked extensively with Arthur Russell.”

Burgess adds that he wrote the tracks “in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away. There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music.”

As frontman of The Charlatans (or The Charlatans UK in the states) for decades, Tim Burgess has become an alternative rock statesman. Arising in the early ’90s during the thriving Madchester and Britpop crazes, The Charlatans have dipped their toes in a lot of styles over the years, but Burgess has remained an interesting figure and compelling songwriter all these years later. Burgess is also an author of several books and an adept solo musician, and his fourth solo album, I Love The New Sky, which was announced with playful lead single “Empathy for the Devil,” is due out May 22nd on Bella Union Records.

Tim Burgess has brought us a lot of joy this past month or two. He’s spoiling us because his brilliant debut for Bella Union Records, “I Love The New Sky” featuring label fave Peter Broderick no less, is imminent.

While in The Charlatans, Tim’s indefatigable energy has been a consistent fuel for the band across thirteen high-charting albums, his solo adventure has been no less extraordinary, scaling new heights in 2020 with his fifth solo release to date: it features wonderfully connective songs of everyday minutiae and universal experience, of love and anger, of loss and belonging, all united by elaborate yet natural arrangements and an effortless but deceptively expert way with melody.

I Love The New Sky’ differs from its predecessors in that all twelve tracks were self-penned. “In the past, I’ve written collaboratively,” says a characteristically, but rightfully excited Burgess. “(2012’s) ‘Oh No I Love You’ was written with Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner in Nashville, and then ‘Same Language, Different Worlds’ was a collaboration with Peter Gordon who had worked extensively with Arthur Russell.”

The twelve tunes of ‘I Love The New Sky’ were authored, he says, “in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away. There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music.”

So far, so Laurel Canyon, though ‘I Love The New Sky’ would end up sounding anything but hippie/folkie, thanks to a connection Tim made while living in a warehouse space in gritty Seven Sisters in North London, before heading to Norfolk.

“The Quietus had their office there,” he recalls. “I used to know pretty much all the stuff they were writing about, but then their album of the year for 2013 was ‘Glynnaestra’ by Grumbling Fur, and I really fell in love with it. I started talking to the band about working together. To cut a long story short I recorded a song with Grumbling Fur,

Lyrically, this might almost be a defining collection from Burgess after thirty years honing his craft. There’s plenty of typical lightness of touch of ‘Only Took A Year’s joking reference to the album’s twelve-month gestation period,

Tim Burgess has announced that his fifth solo album I Love The New Sky” will be available from 22nd May via Bella Union Records, celebrating the news with the release of its new lead track Empathy For The DevilHe’s also revealed a whole slew of live shows to take place across the UK and US between March and July.

Solo artist, singer, label boss, DJ and author, Burgess hasn’t let his role as The Charlatans frontman define him. Each of the tracks on the new album are self-penned. On his writing process, Burgess said that most of the creative process took place “in Norfolk, in the middle of the countryside, with the nearest shop eight miles away. There are no distractions, and I guess that way things happen. I wrote everything on acoustic guitar, and the chords were really considered. The guitar lines would lead the melody, and the melody would inform the lyrics – just dreaming away with music.”

Burgess worked with Grumbling Fur’s Daniel O’Sullivan—whose solo albums came out on Burgess’ label, O Genesis—to arrange and produce the new album, as well as help record the bass, drums and piano for all twelve of the new tracks.

I Love The New Sky will be available from 22nd May via Bella Union Records.

The Silver Field, is Coral Rose, her debut album, “Rooms”, out on Tim Burgess’s O Genesis Recordings that comes out this new year. Was recorded in Coral Rose’s bedroom using loops and layers generated by instruments such as the double bass, cello, guitar, mandolin, harmonium, harmonica and a bagpipe chanter, with her father’s old SPX-90 drenching the rich sounds in delays and reverts, Rooms is the introduction to the sound world of Coral Rose and friends. A touching sound collage patching together voice, tapes, bass, strings, reeds, drums, small sounds, big sounds, sunlight, moonlight, a lot of water.

Rooms is a coming out album in queer sense, and Rose feels it shows her encountering herself as an adult and more specifically, a human being. Coral Rose explains, “This plays out through the metaphor of leaving a house behind – a house of the stuff that builds up around you as you grow up – leaving that behind to make your own decisions about how to live. The last track, ‘Rooms’, is just a little snippet but to me it’s a moment of looking back, seeing it all in a new light with a different perspective from outside, seeing all the feelings and meanings that were once so all-encompassing as something different – as just part of the landscape.” The Silver Field takes the field recording techniques and moves them inside housing them in a touching patchwork of the homespun and the barely awake, magical.

Coral Rose co-opted mates Cathy Lucas from Vanishing Twin and Kiran Bhatt from Red River Dialect and has for “Rooms” embraced an earthy recording process, weaving real tape loops among digital time lines for a texture that’s off-kilter but on point. The reel to reel player used was picked up for a mere pound at a car boot after Coral spoke to the kindred spirited seller about Daphne Oram, and if you really concentrate you can hear the ghosts in the machine, warm warps and pleasing wobbliness. Literally home spun genius, and following on from some inspired recent releases on O Genesis.
