About this deal

As the band's popularity grew, Playtime's distributor Red Rhino Records went bankrupt, leading Inspiral Carpets to form their own label, Cow Records, in March 1989. The label's first release was the Trainsurfing EP. [2] With half of the first album, Life, written, Holt and Swift departed and formed the Rainkings, so the band recruited Too Much Texas singer Tom Hingley and Martyn "Bungle" Walsh of The Next Step to replace them. [2] Martyn Walsh became the band's 13th bass player. [6] After a handful of singles on their own label, with "Move" nearly reaching the UK top 40, the band signed a deal with Mute Records and soon experienced their first top-40 chart success in the UK with " This Is How It Feels." The single reached No.14 on the singles chart, and the debut album Life reached No.2 on the albums chart in 1990. [2] Walters, Sarah (28 August 2012). "Inspiral Carpets pulled the rug from under me claims ex-frontman Tom Hingley in new autobiography". Manchestereveningnews.co.uk . Retrieved 24 November 2017. In 1991 the band released “The Beast Inside” and achieved the number 5 spot on the albums chart. By this point in their career they were building a following in Portugal, Germany and Argentina. In 1992, the band released “Revenge of the Goldfish” which charted in those particular countries. It made it to number 17 in the UK and managed an impressive four singles in the UK Chart. On 20 November 2016, drummer Craig Gill died at the age of 44. [11] [12] [13] Memorial services were attended by music-industry friends including Inspiral Carpets members, Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, Stone Roses bassist Mani and Happy Mondays singer Rowetta. [14] Soon after his death, Gill's friends began a social-media campaign to make the band's 1994 hit "Saturn 5" the Christmas number-one song for 2016. [15] Reunion 2023 [ edit ]

It was announced that Jake Fletcher will be touring with Inspiral Carpets in 2023 & Kev Clark [17] from Dub Sex will be on the drums for the tour. [ citation needed]
