Has there been a busier musician over the last two years? A more prolific artist? More creative? More heroic? Tim Burgess – as self-effacing a band leader, solo star, label runner, repeat memoirist and all-round caffeinated can-do kid as you’ll find – would certainly shrink from that last accolade. “A hero??” he’d likely mutter with a shake of his boyish mop. “For playing some records?” Yes, Tim, we would say that.
His new album, Typical Music, is a 22-track blockbuster set of songs that are as expansive and diverse as they are rich, as fun as they are funky, songs that embrace heartache and love and that run the gamut, if you like, from ABBA to Zappa.
Note: The LP is initially available on limited-edition red/blue vinyl.
