Listening & Watch Parties


Tim Burgess spoke to us on the back of our Introducing The Style Council party and the assistance during Our Favourite Shop.  He asked  @MRCOOLSDREAM to be the host of The Style Council listening Party for Cafe Bleu and for Tracie's Far From The Hurting Kind. #timstwitterlisteningparties   The other ones for The Cost of Loving, Confessions of A Pop Group and Modernism will all be run from @mrcoolsdream.  All parties will hopefully have band members dropping in and out. 


Tim Burgess has had millions of  website hits, appeared on local and National TV, countless music magazines and hosted over 200 listening parties. Amazing!
