INSPIRAL CARPETS +  Blossoms + The Scruff

On Saturday 20th December the ‘Pad Presents’ team have lined true up Manchester Royalty as Inspiral Carpets come to Northampton Roadmender, for the first of what we hope are many shows at the iconic venue.

Alongside The Happy Mondays, The Smiths, New Order and The Stone Roses the Insprial Carpets are integral part of the Manchester music scene which saw the band rise to fame during the huge ‘Madchester’ indie dance phenomenon of the early 90’s. The band scored numerous top 20 singles including This Is How It Feels, Joe, Saturn 5, Move, Dragging Me Down, Caravan, She comes in the fall and the classic ‘I want you’ which featured legendary Fall frontman Mark E Smith’s only ever TOTP appearance.

As well as hit singles the band also cracked the top 10 with their 4 albums Life, Revenge of the Goldfish, The Beast Inside, Devil Hopping as well as unleashing a best seller ‘Greatest Hits’ collection. Around this time the band played huge shows around the UK with shows at Gmex and Ally Pally and even got to headline the iconic Reading festival in 1991. The Bedford show is one of the first UK indoor dates the band have played in over 2 years, their last UK tour in 2012 saw sell out shows up and down the country including a sell-out show at Koko.

The band will be playing the hits and classic favourites, and will be also feature the first ever airing of a couple of songs from their new album which the band have been recording over the past year which will see the light of day later in 2014.

Support comes from new Manchester band BLOSSOMS and Bedford indie urchins THE SCRUFF – Go check them out straight away on Youtube!
