Tim Burgess & Peter Gordon
Same Language, Different Worlds
O Genesis
Catalogue Number
Release Date
September 2, 2016


The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess joins forces with heavyweight New York composer Peter Gordon, founder of the Love of Life Orchestra with Arthur Russell. Four years in the making, Same Language Different Worlds was produced by Gordon in New York and arrives via Burgess’ own O’Genesis label. The duo is accompanied by trombone player Peter Zummo, conga player Mustafa Ahmed, bassist Ernie Brooks and Factory Floor’s Nik Void – all previous collaborators of the two and with many of them former members of the Love of Life Orchestra. While Burgess shines with the smoothest version of his voice, Gordon infuses his compositions with the characteristic experimental spirit that has been defining his work since the 60s: the album places synth-based, plastic pop melodies on drum machines (‘Begin’) next to psychedelic 12 minute epics with propulsive conga rhythms (‘Temperature High’) and quirky piano/sax ballads (‘Tracks Of My Past’).
