Verve's Salisbury Stands In for Charlatans' Drummer BrookesThe Charlatans have announced through The Charlatans Official Website that The Verve’s Pete Salisbury will act as stand in drummer for the UK tour whilst Jon Brookes recovers from his operation.

The official announcement continues, "Brookes, who collapsed on stage in Philadelphia last week, is preparing for his operation this week, back in the UK. It is not known how long he will be out of action but it is thought that Salisbury will complete the October UK tour at least."

The Charlatans' US tour was postponed, following the collapse of drummer Jon Brookes during a gig at Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s on September 15th.

The announcement that followed stated, "Early into the set Brookes suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing. Fortunately there was a doctor in the audience who administered first aid and got the drummer breathing again before the paramedics arrived minutes later. Brookes was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Philadelphia and during the night was given a CAT scan and has been responding well to treatment. He has now been transferred to a larger hospital in the city for further tests, although his condition is said to be improving and doctors believe there will be no long term effects on his health." Brookes was flown back to the UK for further treatment. Although The Charlatans were unable to continue their North American tour, they hope to reschedule the dates as soon as possible.

Brookes is reported to be undergoing treatment in the UK for a brain tumour. The band and Jon Brookes want to thank all well wishers for their kind messages of support.

Fans are advised to check the website regarding future tour dates.

One of the most encouraging offerings last week was the UK release of the new single "All the Eastern Girls" by London-based Chapel Club. The band recently headlined on the Emerge NME Radar Tour, and BBC Radio's Zane Lowe previously recognized the track as his "Hottest Record in the World," but don't expect this record to chart in The Official UK Singles Chart, which, in common with the US Billboard Hot 100, is dominated by RnB and TV talent show artists. As a foretaste of Chapel Club's debut album expected early next year, "All the Eastern Girls" is full of promise for the future.

An emerging band based in fashionable East London, Chapel Club is a guitar band that has developed its own, distinctive, trademark sound. Intense, arty, experimental and yet listenable, the melodies are expressive, generally dramatic, at times tuneful, and often dissonant, with intricate guitar riffs and hooks backed by deliberate playing and rhythmic drumming which every now and then explode into driving guitar licks and dynamic drum rolls. The lyrics, written about lust, love, and loss, are intelligent, darkly poetic, frequently pensive, sometimes reflective, and occasionally contemplative, written and sung with meticulous timing by vocalist Lewis Bowman in a soft, crooning voice which has a quality curiously reminiscent of Ian McCulloch at his finest.

Referred to as "gloomsters" by some, Chapel Club's music has been described as "Moody, majestic and magnificent" by others. Global Editor of Billboard Magazine, Mark Sutherland, described the band's sound as, "Amazing… shoegaze but with songs and balls."
