Demon presents the first official compilation from Tim Burgess celebrating Tim’s Listening Party. This Indies edition includes a signed print limited to 500.
“I’d done Charlatans listening parties and some solo album listening parties, and as the Twitter followers grew, I’d repeat it and do it again and again. It was maybe about a week before being told that we were going to go into a lockdown before we actually did something. I saw all the TV stuff, all the kind of crazy things that were happening and thought if there’s going to be a lockdown, there’s going to be something that I can do.”
As well Tim's Twitter Listening Party, Tim's Listening Party is also a six-part radio and podcast series airing on Sunday nights on Absolute Radio.
Available as a 24 track 2LP collection and pressed on green translucent vinyl, this double LP set brings together 24 highlights from the 1,278 Listening Parties that took place. The parties themselves were an eclectic mix of genres and eras, and the compilation reflects that with Suede, The Chemical Brothers, Sparks, The Breeders, The Lovely Eggs, John Grant, Joan As Police Woman and The Charlatans.
Within the top 100 listening parties, artists reflected on the compilation include John Lennon, The Libertines, MGMT, Dexys Midnight Runners, The Specials and Belle & Sebastian. The 2LP also includes an interview conducted by Danielle Perry with Tim Burgess, detailing the cultural importance of the Listening Party during lockdown.
