8. 8. INSPIRAL CARPETS
Formed in Oldham in 1983 by schoolfriends Graham Lambert (guitar) and Stephen Holt (vocals), Inspiral Carpets came to prominence when organist (and future Radio X presenter) Clint Boon joined the band and they were included in the burgeoning “Madchester” scene. Their quirky songs, now sung by Tom Hingley , propelled by Boon’s psychedelic keyboards led them to chart success in the early 90s with tracks like This Is How It Feels and Move. They returned for a self-titled album in 2014.
