The Charlatans background
Bassist Martin Blunt formed the band in 1988, and then went on to recruit the members Baz Ketley, Rob Collins, Jon Day and Jon Brookes. Different from most bands, The Charlatans include the keyboard, harmonica, organ, hammond organ and mellotron in their music. By 1997, Baz Ketley, Rob Collins, Jon Day and Jon Brookes had been replaced by Tim Burgess, Tony Rogers and Mark Collins. The Charlatans debuted in 1990 with the studio album Some Friendly. Reaching No. 1 on the UK albums chart, the band was off to a good start. "The Only One I Knew" and "Then" from the album were also popular, peaking at No. 9 and 12 on the UK singles chart.
