Inspiral Carpets Biography - Saying the Unsaid
The year 1983 saw school friends Graham Lambert and Stephen Holt recruit drummer Craig Gill for a garage rock project, forming what would eventually become an iconic Mancunian music outfit. Throughout the '80s they released two albums worth of demos but truly found their footing as part of the burgeoning Madchester scene, cutting their teeth alongside bands such as The Stone Roses.
Their first studio-produced EP, Planecrash, garnered much critical attention - particularly the eye of ingenious talent-finder John Peel, who asked the band to perform a live session for his influential BBC Radio 1 show. Though their talents sewed the first seeds of public interest in the band, their chart performance was buoyed by controversial off-stage happenings - such as the prosecution of an Oxford fan for donning one of their offensive branded T-shirts. Subtly has never been IC's strong suit, their music and attitude nothing if not cocksure.
The band reached a high point at the end of the '80s when they formed their own label, Cow Records. The single 'This is How it Feels' and debut album Life charted in the Top 15, with the former gaining attention for touching upon themes of unemployment and domestic violence. Overcoming a temporary split and a few line-up changes over the years, the band are back and well-ready to entertain with both a string of old favourites and new chart-toppers.
