Yes! I should have added earlier Wonderland is another one of their great albums and A Man Needs to be Told is the highlight, it should have been a huge hit for them.

God, I didn't hear a whisper about the album. Was just revisiting "Oh Vanity" (which is utterly great) and then found Modern Nature sitting on Spotify, like a forgotten Christmas present that suddenly turns up mid-year. Did anyone in the US write anything at all about this?

Tried to but my various pitches were turned down. Tim Burgess ended up following me on Twitter a while back -- very flattered, not sure why he did! -- so I've followed him in return and it seems like they've had a very good year of it.

Can't stop won't stop
The Charlatans have released their new single "Plastic Machinery," available now for download and streaming. The song is from the band's thirteenth album entitled Different Days, due out May 26, 2017 via BMG. Co-produced by Jim Spencer, the album was recorded at the band’s studio in Cheshire and features contributions from an array of friends... from Paul Weller and Johnny Marr to crime writer Ian Rankin and writer/actress Sharon Horgan.

The longest time they've ever been between albums has been three years. Most times it's been two, sometimes one.

as you can see from the above pic i'm seeing these lads tonight. i have not paid any attention to them since the 90s ended. i just did some research and they now have 13 albums, that blows my mind. that they somehow have kept it together and are still releasing new music every few years. i have seen them in the past and had a blast dancing my ass off, so i'm hoping for a fun show tonight as one of my old friend talked me into going to the heart of Los Angeles tonight.

i had a blast for a band that is just okay. my friend was joking that the band was really tight but they need a new singer, cracked me up. the audiencewas great as we were all there trying to relive the early 90s all over again. "Sproston Green" is still the best song they have done. i do wish they played more from The Charlatans as "Just When You Thinkin; Things Over" was an obvious highlight and stood out.

i looked these guys up and did you know that they now have 13 albums? good for them for keeping it going.
Yeah I am surprised they have that many albums as well.

The great survivors of their scene, really. Would have seen them last Saturday but other stuff came up.
