The British psychedelic-funk rockers Charlatans U.K. are wrapping
up work on their follow-up to 1997's Tellin' Stories. The beat-heavy
rockers have not yet announced if they have a permanent replacement for
late keyboardist Rob Collins, who died in a car crash prior to the
release of Stories. The new album, which the band's currently mixing in
England, is due in March 1999.
