The Charlatans Biography
The Charlatans are one of the UK's most loved indie rock bands.
Formed in 1989 by bassist Martin Blunt, the band became synonymous with the Madchester scene. Having undergone numerous personnel changes over the years, 2013 saw the passing of drummer Jon Brookes. The band were joined in tribute at the Royal Albert Hall by James Dean Bradfield, Liam Gallagher and members of the Vaccines and New Order in a tribute gig.
It's the band's first release since the death of drummer Jon Brookes.
The Charlatans came in to talk to John Kennedy about their great new album You Cross My Path.
XFM looks at 2001 - the year of Is This It, Origin of Symmetry, Amnesiac and Party Hard.
Clint Boon hosted the launch of RSD 2014 at Manchester's Piccadilly Records with a set from the Charlatans frontman.
