Inspiral Carpets Inspiral Carpets on Limited Edition Import LP
Inspiral Carpets – along with the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays – made their name as part of the whole ‘Madchester' scene, with a string of classic singles and a lucrative line of merchandise. Between 1989 and 1995, the band notched up 15 hits and four Top 20 albums. In 2003, they re-formed and have been playing live ever since. In 2011, they reunited with original singer Stephen Holt.
In 2014 the band unveiled their first new album of studio material in two decades, simply entitled Inspiral Carpets. The album was recorded at Airtight Studios, Chorlton-cum-Hardy, south Manchester and was mixed by Jim Spencer (The Charlatans). In addition to the sterling singles "You're So Good For Me" and "Spitfire," another highlight comes in the form of the garage punk opus "Let You Down," which boasts an amazing cameo by legendary punk poet John Cooper Clarke!
