Carpet Burns - Book Launch with Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets)
Tom Hingley will be reading excerpts from his Inspiral Carpets biography, Carpet Burns at this official launch event for the book.
Hingley will also be interviewed by Mike Joyce (The Smiths / Beatwolf Radio) about his Madchester experiences and beyond.
Carpet Burns is Tom Hingley’s account of his life as lead singer of Inspiral Carpets, one of the big three bands of the Manchester movement, who along with The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays changed music for a generation. Tom’s own words provide an account of what it felt like to be in the eye of a pop hurricane and what happens when the hits end and the arguments kick in.
This is Inspiral Tap.
