An Inspiral Carpets tribute band with a difference. Lead singer Tom Hingley actually was the lead singer of the real Inspiral Carpets singing on all the chart hits including This is How it Feels, Saturn Five, Dragging Me Down, I Want You, She Comes in the Fall and all the songs on the bands four major label albums – Life (1990) The Beast Inside (1991) Revenge of the Goldfish (1992) and Devilhopping (1994).
Formed 2016, THE KARPETS have played barnstorming sets at Shine On Weekender, Embrace’s Secret Festival , Readipop Festival, Vicars Picnic, Rochdale Live, Darwen Live, Festival Too and headline sets at the 100 Club, Audio in Glasgow and over thirty other UK clubs to date.
Comprising of Tom Hingley (lead vocals), Dickon Kyme Wright on keys & backing vocals, Philip McIntyre on guitar & backing vocals, Ste Pearce on bass and drummer Malcolm Law, The Karpets play all Inspirals’ greatest hits as well as the whole of the band’s Revenge of the Goldfish album and a healthy selection of obscure B-side and fan favourites.
The live experience is raw, dynamic, punky & energetic. The band play like their very existence depends on it with humour, skill and volume. Get in there…
The band will perform at Fibbers on Saturday 3rd November and are supported by Skylights, Apollo Junction, and The Feds.
