TBC & New Year 2019

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. The lows are now behind us and the highs we can continue to celebrate particularly the release of our debut single Fountains which has clocked up over four and a half thousand streams and downloads since its release on 5th November last year. … Continue readingTBC & New Year 2019


Back recording for our next release – Phoenix Sessions EP

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!

Buzzcocks artwork adorned my bedroom wall in the ‘70s. RIP Pete. xTBCx


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?


Review by Anne Estella

The Burning Curtains are in the press. Read this great review of TBCs’ debut single “Fountains” on Down The Front Media’s music review page.  “The raw, industrial offering that TBC have produced is unmistakably British in character”  Anne Estella 


Bars, Bordellos & Beaches

We are currently booking for our 2019 UK tour. We can’t wait to get on the road and meet you all. xTBCx 


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

Debut Single Release – FOUNTAINS

Debut single release of “Fountains” announced as 5th November 2018 available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, TIDAL, Pandora, Deezer, and Napster.


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

Tour Name Released

After some deliberation, 20 seconds of it, I have decided to name the tour “Bars, Bordellos & Beaches Tour”. What do you think?

Tour News

Looking to do some solo semi-acoustic busking-style gigs next year starting in June/July.  Specifically looking at small venues, radio stations, record shops, pubs, cafes, high streets even your front yard! I’m off to the Scottish highlands and the Outer Hebrides in July and August for a holiday so I’ll be packing my guitar, mic and amp along with the tent and boots for a Scottish adventure.  In the Autumn we’re of to the Med and I’ll be playing at a mates bar in Santa Ponsa, Mallorca. Tbh if that’s as far as I get with it I’ll be well chuffed! I will be fully “self-contained” and if you have an idea or suggestion for a gig stop along the way I would love to hear it.  I’ll publish a map and calendar soon to start pencilling in some dates.  By then I will also be a fully trained barber! (musicians have to have a day job)  So come and see me play, listen to some awesome music and get your hair cut at the same time!  xTBCx xSCx
