5. 11. THE CHARLATANS
Technically speaking, The Charlatans were founded in the West Midlands, but they later moved to Northwich in Cheshire, the hometown of singer Tim Burgess and their connection with the Madchester sound is undeniable. Their debut single Indian Rope was a huge indie hit, while their second release, The Only One I Know, made the UK Top 10. Over 25 years, The Charlatans have released twelve albums, including Up To Our Hips (1994), Tellin’ Stories (1997), and the latest, 2014’s Modern Nature.
