INSPIRAL CARPETS

INSPIRAL CARPETS

The Oldham-based Inspiral Carpets were formed in 1983, and emerged alongside bands like The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, from the indie scene of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Their sound is based around harmonic (and often psychedelic) keyboards and jangly guitars. The band were propelled to fame after being ‘discovered’ by the Radio 1 DJ John Peel and had their greatest chart success in the UK with a single entitled This Is How It Feels, which is a song about loneliness and unemployment.
