It's fair to say that over the past two years, Tim Burgess has been a very, very busy man.


In that time, the Charlatans singer has completed Telling Stories, an autobiography for Penguin Books.

He's launched the bold O Genesis record label, releasing a series of 7" singles that reflects Burgess' own diverse musical interests and his phenomenal crate-digging instincts.

These have included singer songwriter Joseph Coward, the cult musician R Stevie Moore, an experimental noise piece from Factory Floor's Nik Void, contemporary post punk via Electricity In Our Homes, and a spoken word release from poet Jack Underwood. That's not to mention his presence on Twitter, where his Tim Peak's Diner has become a virtual meeting place for music obsessives the world over.

This, alongside his regular eclectic DJ sets, led Burgess to the attention of BBC 6 Music, who commissioned him to produce shows on Christmas and New Years Eve. And then, of course, there's his new solo album Oh No I Love You, which arguably features some of Burgess' finest music to date. It's been a long journey from Manchester to Los Angeles, to a grey part of North East London and Nashville.

While so many of Burgess' contemporaries from the 1990s have disappeared to come back with lucrative reformations, he and his band have continued to evolve, with The Charlatans taking the brave decision to release one of their most recent albums online for free.
