The Charlatans' obsession with reworking their back catalogue began back in 2012, when Tim Burgess and Co launched a periodic table replacing the chemical elements with their own song titles.

To commemorate last year's World Book Day, the innovative band replaced classic covers of famous book titles with their own album artwork.
The titles included all 12 of the band's albums, from their debut 'Some Friendly' released in 1990, to Modern Nature.

Another stroke of genius came with the Tune Map, where the band reworked the classic design of the London Underground map with their own song titles.

However, we think their latest project is the best yet.
The band have turned their entire back catalogue into a collection of apps.
Replacing classic app icons with highlights from the band's near 30 year career, the app has been launched to mark the release of Over Again, the latest single from Different Days.
Created by Manchester tech firm Modern English, the app allows fans to navigate through the band's back catalogue, including exclusive live video clips.
