The Smiths, The Cure, Ultravox & more added to Tim’s Twitter Listening Party schedule
The Charlatans' Tim Burgess started hosting interactive listening parties for classic albums on Twitter -- where the artists who made them would share stories about the album in real time as fans listened along -- back in the early days of COVID-19 lockdown as a fun way to use the extra time many of us seemed to have. It's kept going, though, and has turned into a very popular series, having done nearly 500 album listening parties since April.
There are still lots of great albums to come. The schedule coming up includes The Cure's Seventeen Seconds (9/26), The Smiths' Strangeways Here We Come (9/28), Thurston Moore's new solo album By the Fire (10/1), Madness' '7' (10/2), Cornershop's When I Was Born for the 7th Time (10/3), Ultravox's Vienna (10/5), Saint Etienne's So Tough (10/9), Soul II Soul's Club Classics Vol One (10/10), The Cure's Pornography (10/10), Andy Bell of Ride's new solo album The View From Halfway Down (10/14), The Divine Comedy's Casanova (10/15) and more.
Tim's even got one record on the schedule for 2021: they'll celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pixies' Trompe Le Monde on September 21, 2021.
You can check out the Tim's Twitter Listening Party schedule below, and head to the website for more details, like who is participating in each party.
If you missed participating in one of the 400+ previous listening parties -- like The Breeders' Pod or Belle & Sebastian's The Boy With the Arab Strap -- they're all archived on the website and you can "play" them in real time so you can listen and read along at your convenience.
