Product Description

Between 1989 and 1995, the band notched up 15 hits and four Top 20 albums before disbanding. In 2003, they re-formed and have been playing sporadically ever since. In 2011, they reunited with original singer Stephen Holt and are now working on a brand new album for
Cherry Red – their first for two decades. Back in mid-1989, after the Inspirals had launched their own Cow label, they released the mail-order cassette DUNG 4. This album’s worth of demos had been recorded around New Year’s 1987, boasting unique songs as well as versions of tracks which they later rerecorded. Dung 4 went on to sell some 8,000 copies but has never been reissued on vinyl or CD. Officially sanctioned by the Inspirals and remastered with help from their organist Clint Boon, Dung 4 is now expanded with the addition of four tracks from their earlier demo tape, Cow, recorded in May 1987

I still have my Inspirals DUNG4 cassette from the 80s.

I don't. however, have a cassette player to play it on. I bought the cassette, back in the day, in Eastern Bloc records when all I'd heard of the band was a single track on a vinyl compilation of Manchester indie bands.

After playing the cassette, I was an immediate fan, and ended up seeing the Inspirals play live 6 times: Hacienda (complete with the "Inspiral Carpets? Bunch of f***ing wan***s!" looping audio track before the performance and the eclectic slide show. Various other places, whose venues elude me, owing to a hazy memory of the era, culminating into the 1990 G-Mex extravaganza, complete with drum troupe, I've got the milk bottle to prove it!

Having lost all means to replicate DUNG4, I was overjoyed at the prospect of owning DUNG4 in a playable format. And I can honestly say it's lost none of its original magic - the rawness, the catchiness, the unique sounds, all come through perfectly in the CD.

If in doubt, purchase 3 copies, at least. Great stuff!

Format: Audio CD
Dung 4 is the band's original cassette demo from 1987/88 and has been remastered from the original master tapes (as detailed in the liner notes). The cassette was very popular with fans in the late '80s and is said to have sold 8000 copies! Not bad for a demo! So it's the first time Dung 4 has ever been released officially on CD (vinyl too on Record Store Day) and it includes the older Cow demo tacked onto the end of the CD. Not only is it just great, but it's also interesting to hear earlier versions of songs such as Joe etc. and has the original singer (now back in the band for their first album in 20 years in September), Steven Holt!

Strangely that quote is about the only thing missing in this version compared to the original tape which I still lovingly treasure, bought in Piccadilly records in about '89. The rawness, especially that of the cheeztastic organ are still vibrant dspite the clean up. I hoped this band were going to carry on from this rather than end up with the stuff they put out later. I love every track on the original, especially Joe, Keep the Circle Around and the psycho cover of 96 tears. Let's hope their new offering is as exciting. And Noel, don't forget.

Purchased this and glad i did, different versions of already familiar songs, Causeway stands out on this for me and is definitely one of my favourite carpets tunes. Glad the band re-mastered this but i dont buy the hype of it being the first album proper. That's in no way a negative slur as this compilation is a necessity for any true inspirals fan, an album that captures a band on the road to success. There are many a gem on this 'love can never lose its own' is a song i would love to hear played live today it has a timeless pop feel to it. Its all in there Boons farfisa driving it along with the manic drumming of Craig and Graham's ripping guitar. Looking forward to the new material but in the mean time this is suffice. The quality of this for having been originally recorded on a tascam 4 track is amazing. Buy this just to hear the raw garagey sound before the heady heights of Madchester.

A Great band, this is a remastering of their earliest work, and it's an unqualified success.

A few songs appeared in their albums, however this is still worth buying as the earlier versions are sufficiently different and interesting to warrant buying this too.

I first discovered the Inspirals through Dung 4 when someone copied me it year's ago on tape from their tape, the good old days of tape to tape. I played that tape to death in my Vauxhall viva.
This release is a must for all. Trully brilliant. And for 7.50 a bargain
