“Suddenly the dancefloor of the Powerstation was reverberating with the thumping of hundreds of feet” (Stuff Review)

‘’still put on a cracking show… tight, spirited and, most importantly, having fun’’ (NZ Herald)

The group found initial success in 1990 with their debut record ‘Some Friendly’. The album charted at #1 in the UK and featured the indie anthem The Only One I Know as well as Then and fan favourite Sproston Green.

Since then THE CHARLATANS have released 12 albums, most recently ‘Different Days’ which fans called “a new classic” and which The Guardian called it their “finest effort since 1996’s Telling Stories”. Along the way they have built up an impressive catalogue of most excellent songs including One to Another, Northern Country Boy, Just When You’re Thinkin Things Over, Weirdo, Blackened Blue Eyes and loads more.

THE CHARLATANS have seen off Madchester and Britpop and made music that’s stood the test of time. That along with their amazing live shows have garnered them a passionate following that has given them lasting success… ‘simply a quality band with great back catalogue, great current stuff and phenomenal live musicians’

THE CHARLATANS sound like home. They’re like your big brothers, always reliable. And always your best mate!”
