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. The year was full of highs and lows.

Artwork for the radio edit of Fountains

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 the studio

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


Take No Prisoners

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


Back to Bullitt

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
