RSD 2019. When the Charlatans emerged with The Only One I Know in 1991, there were countless bands similar to them, but they immediately catapulted to the forefront of the Madchester scene, standing alongside such icons as The Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays.
They had such success because they not only could ride the groove, like so many Madchester bands, but they could also write great songs. These were the gifts that made them among the greatest British survivors of their time, rolling through tragedy and stylistic changes to amass a terrific little body of work - one that was modern enough to play in clubs but classicist enough to stand the test of time.
The 30 track 7” box set is curated by lead singer Tim Burgess, and celebrates the band’s 15 year career on Beggars Banquet. The 7” Singles are on clear vinyl and the boxset is limited to 1000 copies worldwide.
