Description

The Charlatans proudly announce their 30th Anniversary tour and three accompanying vinyl variants, including this 2LP option. Released on Then Recordings these releases sum up their remarkable progress from 1990 Manchester scene hopefuls to one of the UK’s most enduring and best-loved bands. The accompanying tour begins at Belfast, Limelight 22/11/21 and finishes in Aberdeen on 20/12/21.

The band have notched up 13 Top 40 studio albums - three of them number ones - alongside 22 hit singles, four of them top 10. The rollercoaster highs have been accompanied by some shattering lows, any which one of them could have felled a less resilient band, from nervous breakdowns to near bankruptcy and the deaths of two founder members.

Somehow, they have not just carried on but adapted and transformed. The classic Charlatans sound - driving Hammond organ, Northern Soul and house-influenced rhythms, swaggering guitars and Tim Burgess’s sunny, yet somehow yearning vocal - is instantly recognisable. And in spite of everything they have been through their music is now more relevant than ever. The Guardian described their last album, Different Days as “one of their best ever”.

The team at Wax and Beans are incredibly excited about this release, we rank them amongst our favourite bands, having produced a tonne of amazing tracks and some of the best live gigs we've ever attended.
