I Liked You Before


Tim Burgess has recently released a solo album he recorded and then forgot about. At a loose end between Christmas and New Year ten years ago and having only just given up the booze he gathered a few mates around him at The Charlatans studio in Northwich- Martin Duffy on keyboards, Debbie Googe on bass, Josh from The Horrors on guitar and Steffan from The Klaxons on drums. They recorded ten songs and this one, Clutching Insignificance, is the opener to the album (As I Was Now), a little bit ragged but insistent and intent on sticking in the memory.

I like this album far more than the last Charlatans effort (which was rather weak). Some really good songs on it.

I'm with TheRobster. 'Modern Nature' was so great that 'Different Days' came as something of a disappointment.

There are a handful of songs that are good but you're both right, it hasn't stuck anywhere near like Modern Nature did.
