Charlatans - The Charlatans Perform At Sea

The Charlatans performed at sea last night (21.06.12)

The group's Tim Burgess and Mark Collins performed an acoustic set on privately-owned Spitbank Fort - which was recently converted to an exclusive venue about one mile off the coast of Portsmouth - in front of just 60 fans and admitted it was one of the most ''unusual'' venues they had ever played.

Mark said: ''It's got to be up there with the most unusual. I mean we've done stadiums, we've done churches, we've done back gardens, and now we're doing a Napoleonic for in the middle of the Solent. All part of the repertoire.''

The Charlatans - who will perform at this weekend's Isle of Wight festival - have most recently been touring to mark the 15th anniversary of their classic album 'Tellin' Stories' but are now thinking about new material.

Tim told Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell: ''We are planning on writing a new album - next year, that's when we're going to start it - it could be casual or intense, we'll wait and see.''

Tim and Mark performed 'The Only One I Know' , 'Impossible', 'Here Comes a Soul Saver', 'You're a Big Girl Now', 'North Country Boy' and 'One to Another'.

Highlights from the gig and the interview will broadcast on Christian O'Connell's show this morning (22.06.12) and will also be available to watch online at
