You've Taken This Too Far

Some FriendlyIt's hard to believe The Charlatans' debut Some Friendly was released 20 years ago. Tim Burgess reminisces track-by-track. There's even more of a celebration here, including Burgess' album-by-album commentary.

As is becoming customary at significant anniversaries, the band is re-releasing the album in an expanded edition that includes non-album singles and BBC sessions. Pre-order the import through Amazon.com - it's out May 18.

The Charlatans is one of those rare bands that did not peak with their first few releases. They've evolved and continue to put out worthy albums that even feel less dated than Some Friendly. Explore via Amazon.com or iTunes.
