Tim Burgess‘ coffee company Tim Peaks is heading to Festival Number 6 (5-7 September) to host a stage that will feature bands, talks, DJs and more at The Portmeirion Town Hall that they’re sharing with Q. We put five questions to our room-mate for the weekend.
WHO would play you in the film of your life?
I’ve been told there’s this actor called Nico Mirallegro who was in the recent Jimmy McGovern drama called Common. I read on Twitter that his mum always says “You’d make a good Tim Burgess” and I could see a bit of a resemblance. Besides Clint Eastwood is a bit too old.
WHAT are you currently working on?
Songs with Grumbling Fur, finishing a new Charlatans, doing the next book: Tim Book 2; there’s some more stuff with Peter Gordon. Lots of stuff floating around.
WHY do you do that thing you do?
I don’t really know any other way at the moment. In my 30s I learnt how to be myself very meticulously, now I’m doing it unconsciously.
WHERE do you see yourself in ten years?
Tim Peaks will have grown and will have been given a more room at Festival Number 6. The great thing about it is the profits go to the David Lynch foundation and I love the idea that the coffee keeps on giving. Perhaps we’ll have a TV ad by then too. Lawrence from Felt came up with an idea, I think it was I take my hair off and it was filled with coffee. I think that was the idea. Or we could do a Gold Blend couple for the Twitter generation, filmed by David Lynch. That will be good.
WHEN will there be a harvest for the world?
Tomorrow! And the day after.
