In an interview with Flotation Suite drummer John Brookes, he was asked what his favorite Charlatans track was: "It does change, but at the moment 'Indian Rope.' I really enjoy playing that because it's the first thing we ever did and it's got a lot of memories with it and there's even a T-shirt with the cover of 'Indian Rope' on the front. The great thing is that it was 16 years ago which is cool." (courtesy: floatationsuite.com
The name Indian Rope probably came from Brian Auger and Julie Driscoll's "Indian Rope Man" which was a favorite song of Charlatans bassist Martin Blunt.
Initially only 1000 copies were pressed at a cost of 3,000 pounds. However, the song was re-released in June 1991 due to increased popularity of The Charlatans. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England, for all above)
