the cocks are crowing and the horses clip-rattling in earshot of Tim Burgess ' Norfolk isolation bunker.
The Quiet , rural home, which he shares with his young son, is a world away from The Rock 'n' roll carnage of his Los Angeles days. It is precisely here, however, that the 52-year-old leads The Resistance against the blocking of the blues, with its popular online album, love-ins.
Or, as Tim puts it, rather succinctly, "We hear on The Albums , apart."
"The idea is so simple, but it works on so many levels," he says.
The opening Two Weeks of Tim's Twitter-Listening-Party - celebrate-classic-to have albums and future favorites seems to be hit stranded a chord with many people on Social Media , thanks to the insights of many of The Star 's musical friends, including The Chemical Brothers.
And for The Second Saturday in the indoor range in a row, the twice-nightly virtual station "at the top of the trending charts, as he urged his followers to join in and former Oasis guitarist Paul "Bonehead' Arthurs, for a socially distanced "Deep Dive " into The Band 's best-selling 1995 LP, What's The Story (Morning Glory ? ).
"I knew it would connect with people, as I have done with The Charlatans events.
"But I thought only if I were also some of The People I know, in - Like Bonehead, or Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand , or horseback riding, or Dave Rowntree of Blur, is Then sorted in The First week!"
"I thought it could be great," he adds.
Now, with the growing faster than the queue outside the downtown supermarket, we asked his host about the importance of the human connection through the music in these troubled times, and the release of his fifth solo album, I Like the New sky.
As the insulation is So Far Tim go?
I'm pretty good with it. Or maybe even used to it. But there's something about the proximity to people, which I miss.
Describe your typical listening party set up for us. There is to eat? Alcohol? What is with the dancing?
It was danced in the Dust up [Chemical Brothers' debut] Exit Planet. I would be A Fool !
I always have some ready to say things, because I always want to answer as many people back as possible.
So, You know, it is my full-time job!
Everyone had something to say amazing and it is so good that it will come great new bands [The Factorial, Fontaines, D. C, Pip Blom ] and contribute.
The Morning Glory listening party threw up memories of You guys, the support from Oasis in Knebworth 1996. This time was obviously marred by the death of [the late charlatans Keyboard Player Rob Collins . How do You remember the gig?
I know it's not really very much, to be honest. I just didn't know that we can play well again.
Rob was our Number One musician in The Band , and probably The Best singer. I always had to look to him to be able to know that I was singing In Tune , and he was not there, so it was really difficult.Mark Collins ; Tim Burgess , Rob Collins , Jon Brookes , Martin Blunt of The Charlatans at the Reading Festival in 1992,
are You in search of home-schooling?
I'm not trying to drill in science and mathematics in him, but I'm talking to him about volcanoes and coronavirus, and The Environment . But try to make him a bit of spelling and reading is really difficult!
when they lifted the lockdown restrictions-hopefully, can You see more, hear from the parties?
I can see how they are on lockdown. I only see it getting bigger and bigger.
The Cult want to make and The Flaming Lips happened.
It is easy to have your own Thing now. I think that people will copy... I also have people offer advice on how I should give them the film, or make it more effective. But You know what? I'm just saying, 'I Like You The Way You are'.
I write alone a lot, but this is The First record that I ever thought, 'Well, it's about Tim Burgess album, I'm going to write to me and I'm going to spend some time where I don't do Anything Else , apart from to write this album. '
A lot of The Time , I'm going to be, Like , 'I've got a couple of songs, I think some sound very charlatans, some might not. "Or I'm going to write a book or do a couple of gigs or something Like that.
Everything is fragmented.
That was something I thought if I spent some time only to all of the songs on this album, it is a very focused Thing .
It has been described as a record About Love , anger and loss
It is all of these things really. Remember, it was my focus for a year, and happened a lot in 10 Minutes with me!
Everything in there, from looking for a few new friends that I communicated a lot of experience with already. To quarrel with people I would not want to see ever again.
And such is life.
how is it in sound-talk?
I wanted it to sound as natural as possible and for the melodies and the lyrics to kind of direct where the chords go.
In the Rockfield Studios near Monmouth, Wales] there is a sound of singing that I really wanted for this record. So I went there for the First Time in 25 years. I invited Mark Collins , and he slept and played in the same room as he did 25 years ago!The Singer 's fifth solo album,
no. I mean, I understand why obviously.
The crazy Thing is, we managed to get four shows in New York - we were supposed to do South by Southwest, but This Was cancelled after the - Then fly home The Day , because it was the Last Flight Back Home .
So it was pretty crazy. As it seems, it must have been years, in a utopian past.
And it will also give people something to look forward to and we can have a listening party with him.
