The Charlatans to release documentary on the making of 'Tellin' Stories'
A documentary about the making of The Charlatans' 1997 album 'Tellin' Stories' will be released in May.

The film – titled 'Mountain Picnic Blues' tells the story of the band's 1997 LP, which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year. A DVD, which will also include a live CD recording of the band's gig at Glasgow's Barrowlands this year, will be released on May 13.

The film features interviews with all members of the band, as well as music from the album, including their hits 'One To Another' and 'North Country Boy'. It also tells the story of the recording of the LP, which was overshadowed by the tragic death of keyboard player Rob Collins. "Afterwards we were feeling like, 'Where do we go from here?', 'Do we just do these gigs and then say, 'That’s it' or do we move forward creating music with another person?" Charlatans bassist Martin Blunt told NME last year.

The film also incorporates tales of their 1996 support slot for Oasis at Knebworth, where the band played in front of 210,000 people. "We stayed about 30 miles out from Knebworth and I just remember we arrived in a helicopter, thinking, 'This is all getting a bit surreal,' you know. I’d never been in a helicopter before. A lot of the press came running down to our helicopter thinking Oasis had arrived," Blunt said.

The Charlatans will be holding a couple of screenings in London and Manchester during the week of release. More information will be released closer to the time.
