New album from Inspiral Carpets

Inspiral Carpets have signed to Cherry Red Records, with a new album and a reissue both planned for 2014.

A self-titled album is scheduled for September, with a re-issue of their Dung 4 demo tape planned for this year's Record Store Day on 19th April. The new album will feature recent singles ‘You’re So Good For Me’ and ‘Fix Your Smile’ alongside ten new tracks. The demo will contain all eleven original tracks, remastered from the original master tapes, with a bonus 7” EP of the band’s earlier four-track Cow demo from May 1987. All tracks will also appear on the CD edition.

Clint Boon: “We recorded and mixed the Dung 4 session at my little studio in the Guide Mill on South Street, Ashton Under Lyne. It cost nothing to make. We all had jobs at the time. This is what we did after work. We were a garage band. I knew this recording session was a very important moment for the band. To me, Dung 4 is our debut album. Listening to the original master tapes for the first time in 27 years was the most goosebump-inducing moment I’ve had in my time with the Inspirals.”
