As you know TBC have a passion for the cinema of the ’60s and ’70s and one of our all-time favourites is the British gangster classic, Get Carter starring the great Micheal Caine. It’s not the first time this film has influenced musicians with their artistic endeavours, The Human League also paid homage in their track of the same name on the seminal album Dare. … Continue readingMy name is… Carter’s Revenge

Welcome one and all to 2019. This year will see me celebrate my 56th revolution around the sun, the imminent release of the Phoenix Sessions EP, the recording of TBC’s debut album and the start of TBC’s Bars, Bordellos & Beaches tour. 2018 marked a turning point in the life of The Burning Curtains.

Sometimes is coming along nicely. I’ve already finished Hypertension and Punk is on the menu for tomorrow. Here’s a little video of yours truly deep in shoegaze guitar heaven!
Was out in Alexandra Park, Oldham, UK on Sunday and snapped this on my phone. I’m working on a radio edit of the single and thought this is a more striking image for the artwork. While you’re here why not have a listen to “Fountains” on Spotify?
Back to tracking guitars this week for our next release “Phoenix Sessions” which will be a 3 track EP featuring “Punk”, “Sometimes” and “Hypertension”. These three tracks featured in a live webcast earlier in the year and reached an audience in excess of 3000. Due for release worldwide after Christmas, we shall be making it available on 7 inch vinyl in a limited run of 100 copies. These will be exclusively available to purchase from the venues we will be playing from April next year. Cant wait for you to hear it. xTBCx
Only one more day to wait before the launch of TBC’s debut single “Fountains” 🎶🎸😎🚀 Today we’ll be doing an interview with Tim Forker of Forkster Music Promotions which will be available on his blog and online tomorrow. It’s been a long road to get to this point. There have been casualties along the way. This is the end of the beginning and as a new chapter unfolds we hope you can stay with us and enjoy the rush xTBCx
One of the first songs to emerge from our damp basement in Jim Allen’s old house in Middleton and inspired by 1968 movie thriller of the same name, I’ve decided to bring this TBC classic back into the sunlight where it belongs.
Master for Fountains was delivered today and uploaded for release. Make a note for the 5th of November. Our debut single will be available on all your usual digital channels worldwide. So happy that we are finally there and a massive thank-you goes to Joe Sage who has done a remarkable job for TBC. Love ‘n’ stuff Stuart Campbell
Just listening to the final mix of ‘Fountains’, top job Joe. Give Joe a visit: https://www.facebook.com/nevisaudio/
After some deliberation, 20 seconds of it, I have decided to name the tour “Bars, Bordellos & Beaches Tour”. What do you think?
