There are two bands with the name The Charlatans. 1. An alternative rock band from the United Kingdom 2. A psychedelic rock band from the United States 1.
The Charlatans (known as The Charlatans UK in the U.S. to avoid confusion with the 1960s group of the same name) were originally formed in the West Midlands/Northwich, England in 1988 by bassist Martin Blunt, who recruited fellow West Midlanders; Rob Collins (keyboards), Jon Brookes (drums), John Baker (also known as Day) (guitar) plus vocalist Baz Ketley. - Early Days and Initial Success (1990-91) - Former Electric Crayons singer Tim Burgess (from Northwich) replaced Ketley before the release of The Charlatans debut single "Indian Rope" in 1990 on the band's own Dead Dead Good Records label. It proved an indie hit and the group soon found a major label, Beggars Banquet off-shoot Situation Two, in time for the release of The Only One I Know which reached the Top 10 in the UK singles chart.
A further single, Then, and debut album Some Friendly, were released later that year to great commercial and critical acclaim. - Line-up change / Elusive success (1991-94) - Baker left the band after the 1991's Over Rising single, to be replaced by Mark Collins (no relation to Rob), who made his debut on another non-album single and video, Me. In Time. Trying to capitalize on the earlier success of "The Only One I Know" the band brought in maverick producer Flood for their second album Between 10th and 11th. ...show less
