New book from Charlatans frontman traces his lifelong passion for records

Faber and Faber have announced the release of a new book from Tim Burgess to be called Tim Book Two: Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco.

The book will follow on from his 2012 memoir, Telling Stories, and sees him writing in-depth about his lifelong love for records, record shops and people who make records.

After finishing his autobiography, Burgess decided to get in touch with a number of people he admired, and ask them to each suggest an album for him to track down on various travels. This afforded him the opportunity too to see how record shops were getting on in the digital age. Among those he contacted were Johnny Marr, Iggy Pop, David Lynch and Cosey Fanni Tutti. You can pre-order the book and find out more information here.
