Tim Burgess – lead singer of The Charlatans, in Coventry

December 4, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Coventry Library, 4th December, 7.30pm (doors at 7pm). Tickets £5.

Come and meet Tim Burgess as he launches his latest book, One, Two, Another, a collection of the very best lyrics by lead singer of The Charlatans, with added commentary and memoir.

We’re excited to welcome back The Charlatans lead singer and library fan Tim Burgess ( who played a solo show in Kendal Library)for an in-conversation event to support the launch of his forthcoming third book, One, Two, Another.  Tim will be in-conversation with radio news reporter and 5 Live presenter, Phil Williams. Following the in-conversation, Tim will be signing copies of the book which will be on sale on the evening.

The Charlatans are one of the best loved British bands, as relevant now as when they first released their first single nearly thirty years ago. In One, Two, Another, Tim presents and annotates his lyrics – from The Charlatans to The Chemical Brothers – allowing an insight into a very idiosyncratic and creative song-writing process.

“I imagine that everybody who writes songs, approaches them in a variety of ways to come up with the lyrics” says Tim. “From lists to experiences, there are no rules. A good song is a good song whoever writes it and however the writing happens. I only know what I do. In this here book I have collected some of the ideas and thoughts and words.”
