• THE 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 in iconic T-shirts.
• Between 1989 and 1995, the band notched up 15 hits and four Top 20 albums. In 2003, they re-formed and have been playing ever since. In 2011, they reunited with original singer Stephen Holt.
• In September, the band unveil their first new album for two decades – simply entitled INSPIRAL CARPETS.
• “Spitfire” is the first single to be released from their eponymous new LP. Already previewed at their sell-out show in Manchester at Band On The Wall, the song will be promoted by a video which has been shot at Gorton Monastery (another Mancunian institution!).
• The 7” edition boasts an exclusive album out-take.
