- Jon Brookes The Charlatans has died.
Bloody hell. One of my favourite all time bands, and the soundtrack to my youth. First Rob Collins, now Jon. RIP Jon.
First charlatans single I bought…

Oh man. that is truly gutting. 🙁 Thoughts to his family.
My favourite band of the the 90’s, Up to Our Hips was and still is, IMO, their best album,.
Saw them live at the Shepard’s Bush Empire many moons ago, bloody fantastic live. They opened up with Forever, which almost bought the house down.
RIP.Posted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber
Won’t mean a lot to many of you but as a fan of the band since almost the beginning this is dreadful news. Down to earth and genuine guy each time I met him and also to my mind one of the truly great British drummers of his era.
A local hero of mine and a loss to his family and friends.Posted 4 years agojamj1974Subscriber
Woody, I’ve got that Indian Rope 12″ – one from the original release. Also got the re-issued CD too. Happy to rip it as it is unavailable. Let me me know if you want it?
Was playing Up To Our Hips on the way in – might go for that era b-sides on the way home… Stir It Up and Only a Boho sound appealing right now…
Emac65. You’re not that far from me – I’m going out for an evening ride around Sutton Park with my bro and a couple of drinks after, you may hear some slightly drunken singing… I am jumping off the wagon to raise a glass for Jon.Posted 4 years ago
