There’s a new album of sorts too
Inspiral Carpets have announced that they are to play an 8-date UK tour in March.
The band, made up of the definitive line-up, Tom Hingley, Clint Boon, Craig ‘Noddy’ Gill, Martyn Walsh and Graham Lambert play their first shows since their 2003 sell-out tour.
Prior to going on the road, the band who first emerged out of Manchester with the Happy Mondays and the Stone Roses, will release an exclusive digital album, “Keep The Circle.”
As well as containing all 13 B-sides to the Inspiral 13 Top 40 singles – “Keep The Circle” also contains previously unreleased rarities.
A version of Saturn 5 featuring Mark E Smith of The Fall and the first ever Inspiral Carpets recording- Garage Full Of Flowers which was previously only available on a limited release flexi disc in 1988 are included.

Birmingham Academy (March 2)
Glasgow ABC (3)
Lincoln Engine Shed (4)
Norwich Waterfront (5)
Brighton Concorde 2 (7)
Leeds University (8)
