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.
The latest BRITs Week show has been announced and sees the legendary Charlatans playing a show at the Brooklyn Bowl.
The Charlatans came in to talk to John Kennedy about their great new album You Cross My Path.

Which artists have come out of the block, all guns blazing? XFM picks half a ton of excellent debuts.
