The Charlatans Perform Their Hits … And “Call Me Maybe”… On The Strombo Show

Last night on The Strombo Show, The Charlatans performed a stripped-down acoustic duo session and chatted with the host / landlord, George Stroumboulopoulos. Lead singer, Tim Burgess was in fine form, from his thoughts on BritPop: “I invented it… Everyone was in a band and everyone was the same age,” to views on their late members: “We play samples – so they’re on the road whether they like it or not.” They played songs from their whole career and FRANKIIE joined them to cover Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” Brilliant stuff.
