Don't Cross the Charatans' path!


Feeling shattered, and in desperate need of rest, and as usual, have too much to do.

However, have dragged myself out of bed long enough to download for free -yup, free!- and legally the new Charlatans single, courtesy of XFM Scotland. their new album is going to be available for free the same way next year, and it seems manager Alan McGee (yup, him, the one that signed Oasis) has realised this is the way the wind is blowing. No kidding...

And what of the song itself? Pretty damn great, and up there with the rest of the best stuff they've done over the last...seventeen years (i have long maintained that I think The Charlatans will outlast virtually ever other band of their original era). I'm already playing it for the second time this morning, and it's only been available for about twelve minutes.

Download it here and let me know what you think

I can honestly say I didn't these guys would still be around but all they seem to do is make solid album after solid album. Here appears to be yet another really good song. Proves you never know about music...

Thanks for the heads up!

Enjoy, sir! And here's to the album...

I like it very much - especially when the chorus kicks in. Thanks for another choice track.

You're welcome. At least this track can be downloaded, have spent the last two days trying to download the new Verve track via the NME site...
