Video of The Day: The Charlatans

There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video Of The Day are a cut (or two) above.

During my formative music-loving years, I was obsessed by all things UK (and rightly so, let's be honest). One of the most important bands to me as I came of musical age was Manchester's The Charlatans. I've been a fan for almost twenty years now (where oh where has the time gone?!). 

The gents are currently touring the UK, and having seen them a few times now, I can say that those are some lucky, lucky fans indeed that are getting to see those shows. Theirs have been some of the best shows I've ever been to.  

"One to Another" is one of my very favorite Charlies songs, with one of my very favorite lines of all time ("Be my Spiderwoman/I'll be your Spiderman"), and the clip for the song is evocative of the times (late 90s). The song is pure Charlatans, jangly and lively and alive. Swoon. For your listening pleasure, you can also check out some new Charlatans, and I encourage you to pretty much obtain their entire catalog.
