‘120 Minutes’ Rewind: The Charlatans U.K. get ‘Some Friendly’ with Dave Kendall — 1990

The Charlatans UK

For this week’s installment of our “120 Minutes” Rewind series, we travel back to 1990 for this Dave Kendall interview with Tim Burgess and the late Jon Brookes of The Charlatans — or The Charlatans U.K., as they were forced to be known as in the U.S.

In this 7-minute “120 Minutes” clip, Burgess and Brookes — who, sadly, succumbed to brain cancer in 2013 — discuss the name change, the Manchester scene, their breakout single “The Only One I Know” and the impending release of their debut album Some Friendly.

The Charlatans, thankfully, are sill with us, and released their latest album, Modern Nature, last month.

  1. I love this band. But you can see right away when the Stone Roses are mentioned that the Charlatans are sensitive of being pigeon-holed as a Roses rip-off band. And, in some ways they were — but they did it masterfully and later grew into their identity.
