One Two Another is a collection of the very best lyrics by lead singer of The Charlatans, Tim Burgess, with added commentary and memoir. A good song is a good song whoever writes it and however the writing happens.
Over the past three decades, he has cultivated a lyrical style that is equal parts searing, elusive and raw. Brimming with nods to an eclectic array of influences, from French chanson to East Coast rap, his words provide vivid snapshots of modern life, its highs and lows, and the things we do to get by.
For the first time Tim's collected lyrics are accompanied by his revealing commentary, featuring backstage anecdotes, advice on how to conjure up the music muse, poignant reflections - and insight into a very idiosyncratic songwriting process. One Two Another chronicles the evolution of Tim's songwriting and reveals the method behind the madness. He knows why pop's art, a culture and a cure.
