28) "The Mid-Morning Recording" The Charlatans-'Us and Us Only' (Japanese CD Version)
The world laid to rest an amazing person this week. Jon Brookes, the drummer of The Charlatans passed on at the age of 44 from a brain tumor. When Orlando and I first became friends, it was obvious that The Charlatans were one of the best bands on the planet, and we both shared a deep love of their music. We were both gutted this week when we found out that the band had lost another of their soulmates. I only got to say hi to him during at show at SXSW, but Jon Brookes will always be one of my all-time favorite musicians. I can't think of a drummer that I air-drummed to more. The music lives on though, and I would suspect, so does the band. We played the Japanese CD version of this 1999 classic album. I found this version because it is the only version of the album to feature all part to "Good Witch, Bad Witch". I have all three versions of the album including a vinyl UK copy. I went with the Japanese CD because it is more complete. (Yeah, I am a big fan of this band.) Rest In Peace Jon Brookes "Do you ever get this feeling when it’s hard to carry on?" - Michael - MFL
