Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Inspiral Carpets were a band that, at the height of their popularity, pretty much passed me by. They were a staple of the "Madchester" baggy indie scene in the late 1980s, alongside The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays. At that point, in my early teens, I was busy listening to my Beatles, Stones and Bowie albums and didn't have a great deal of interest in new music. However, in the early nineties, I became aware of them thanks to listening to good late night radio programmes and really loved Clint Boon's swirling Hammond Organ sound, particularly enjoying "Dragging Me Down" and "Saturn 5". In 2009, I finally got around to buying their Greatest Hits for a relatively small amount of money. Thankfully, I only spent a few quid on this purchase because, to be frank, I was disappointed when I first heard it. It's not that this is a particularly bad collection (far from it), it's just that this isn't an album that I can easily appreciate by listening to it from start to finish. It's like having a huge box of chocolates and having to eat a lot of chocolates you don't particularly enjoy just to get to the ones you do. None of them are that terrible, far from it, but by the time you reach your favourites, you don't enjoy them as much because you've overdosed on the flavour.

Without delving any further into their back catalogue, it still seems glaringly obvious that the Inspiral Carpets were very much a singles band, because not exactly everything on their twenty track "Greatest Hits" is brilliant. It does, therefore, leave you to wonder what their other tracks were like. Their early material is full of energy, but a little devoid of melody and more than a little samey.

The Inspiral Carpets have always been one of the forgotten bands of the 80's & 90's. Lost amongst the Manchester scene of The Smiths, New Order, Happy Mondays et al, they, like the Farm, are seldom referred to when the scene is discussed. The quality and diversity of their music is brilliant however, and let's not forget the fine, fine use of the Hammond Organ! Dragging Me Down is my personal favourite, but there are plenty of tracks on here that most will remember fondly, especially This Is How It Feels To Be Lonely.

They wrote some of the catchiest singles EVER!!!! If their albums had been as consistent, they'd have been huge!!! This is a really good way to find out what they were really about. 3 Quality minutes of pop, You'll be singing along after a couple of listens...All classics...

Fun and catchy music from the early 90's which somehow got overshadowed by certain other bands from Manchester at the time, notably The Stone Roses, but how could anyone resist Saturn 5 at full volume. Hasn't aged a bit. Unlike me.

Inspiral Carpets / Stone Roses / Happy Mondays

The Inspiral Carpets were never as cool as the Stone Roses, or the kings of the 'E' scene like the Happy Mondays, but they were the great singles band of the Madchester era.

They hit the charts more frequently than their fellow Mancunians of the late 1980s and early 90s.

i saw them live about 10 times in the early 90s... even met the guys at a party once(they were all lovely), brings back memories of a really great band, they never got the credit the roses, mondays et al got but they wree musically great.... just too nice to be part of that scene.
