The Charlatans frontman is keeping the nation entertained by joining forces with artists from Twitter for his album listening parties. Find out when the next one is here...
Tim Burgess has become a bit of a hero for coming up with a way to bring music fans together with his Twitter Listening Parties.
The Charlatans frontman has had thousands of people listening and tweeting along to some of the biggest albums of all time, and even got artists in on the act.
We've been delighted with tales and inside knowledge from the likes of Bonehead on Oasis' (What's The Story) Morning Glory?, Doves on their Lost Souls album and Dave Rowntree on Blur's Parlklife. And there's still many more albums in the pipeline as more and more artists queue up to be part of the phenomenon.
Find out how Tim Burgess' listening parties work, and what artists, bands and albums you can expect to feature soon.
It's simple. Music-lovers are asked to stream or play the album in question, follow Burgess and the relevant Twitter accounts, and share memories or ask questions in real-time. This is also facilitated by the hashtag #timstwitterlisteningparty.
