The Charlatans recorded an album, but after fights with Kama Sutra, it was shelved. These early recordings were finally released in 1996. There's an Easter Egg page with more info (hint: they started the Psychedelic Era in the summer of 1965).
The two creative leaders (Hunter & Hicks) departed and the band tried to carry on, finally releasing an album in mid 69.
