The Charlatans seem to be in creative overdrive…last week the designed their own cereal and this week their own version of Mendelev’s Periodic Table of the Elements. Created to celebrate the anniversary of the first periodic table by Dmitri Mendeleev in March 1869, ”ËœThe Periodic Turntable of The Charlatans’ – seen above ”“ can be purchased in the form of a signed, limited edition poster from the band’s online store.

Tim Burgess teamed up with friend Nick Fraser and Aiden Smith at Proof Spirit to recreate the periodic table, replacing each element with a track from The Charlatans back catalogue. Alongside their own symbols, each musical element also includes track durations and album credits, creating the ultimate Charlatans resource.

When asked about The Periodic Turntable, Tim Burgess had this to say:

“The periodic turntable may not be able to tell you how to create nuclear energy but it will tell you who did backing vocals on tracks from ‘Wonderland’. Who knew science could be so cool?”

Hand-numbered and signed by the whole band, posters of The Periodic Turntable are priced at £50 and are strictly limited to only 123 copies, tying in with the number of tracks that appear on the table. (Note: the original periodic table contains only 118 elements)

You can see the table in more detail and purchase the posters here.

The Charlatans are also re-releasing their album ‘Tellin’ Stories’ on May 28th through Beggars Banquet Records and will be heading out on tour in June to celebrate its 15th anniversary, performing the album in full at each of the following shows:

1st: MANCHESTER, O2 Apollo
8th: LONDON, Hammersmith Apollo
9th: GLASGOW, Barrowlands (SOLD OUT)

  5. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  6. I like what you guys are up too. Such clever work and reporting! Keep up the superb works guys I have incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it’ll improve the value of my site :).
