Britpop, for the majority of people not concerned with it, is a genre that is the home to bands such as Radiohead, Oasis, Blur and Pulp. Plenty of other bands land in this genre, but because of the success of said bands, they tend not to go by noticed. The Charlatans are such a band. ‘Us And Us Only’ was first released in October 1999 and acted as a new chapter for the band, as it was their first release on Island Records, and was also their first album without keyboardist Rob Collins (who tragically died in a car crash in 1996).
