As noted before, due to personal (happy) circumstances this site has only been slightly updated throughout the past year.
I hoped to add more the upcoming months, but time provides otherwise. Therefore I have decided to close the site until further
notice. It will not disappear (I pay for this webspace), but the information here is frozen as it is as I write this notification.

Somewhere in the (distant?) future I hope to continue maintaining it as I used to do, and who knows I might even get up-to-date with it all again!?

As long as this website is being closed I also deleted the links to my email.
If you still want to leave a note or just say hi, I have opened a guestbook ...

Thank you,

Go to the official site for the latest information on the band.

This discography is divided into the following five sections:

  1. The first section is a list of all worldwide Charlatans releases in chronological order.
    It includes many pictures of their sleeves, so please be a little patient.
  2. The second section is a list of compilation appearances.
  3. The third one is a list of bootleg releases known to me.
  4. Originally I had included information on promotional releases in the first section, but since I do have only a few promo's myself, and all sorts of promo's seem to be put out worldwide, I decided to create a separate promo page. Where I will try to compile all information I can find on promo's, although it is quite confusing, because I have seen many different information on probably the same items! If there's anyone out there who can provide specified information on any promo, please contact me!
  5. To give the Charlatans a sort of historical perspective, a separate section with information about pre-Charlatans (related) releases has been added. This part also includes information about how they became The Charlatans, so check it out to see where it all started from ...

All releases are UK-releases, except otherwise noted.
US-releases are as The Charlatans UK to prevent getting mixed up with the US sixties band The Charlatans.

The Charlatans 1999

This discography is originally based on a page once made by Hans Gylling from Sweden, who didn't update it since September 1995, and on the discography as published in No. 193 (September 1995) of the Record Collector magazine.

Since then additional information was taken from various sources, a.o. some WWW-sites. One specific site I used to check out very often was Eirik Gudmundsen's The Charlatans' BackRoomWindow, and especially his news page for the latest stories and info on the band. I also used his discography page, as well as the discographies made by Sally at "" (not available anymore), the one at Beggars Banquet, and the Scandinavian Indie Charlatans discography made by Erik Söderström.

Another source for additional information (especially on US promos), was the absolutely cool site Particles! - The Charlatans UK Page, maintained by Brian Green. It included loads of sounds, images, lyrics, and was the home of the Charlatans UK webring!
I would like to thank Brian especially for letting me use some of his scans. Thanks mate!

A good information base on the CHAR promos (see my promo page) and the Charlatans postcards (see my discography) was Sarah's "Here comes a Soul Saver on your record player" Charlatans site. Unfortunately it's gone since early 2002.

Also visit The Charlatans official website at !
