Seminal baggy pioneers Inspiral Carpets will be playing their 1990 album Life in its entirety along with their greatest hits when they visit Wrexham’s Central Station in March.
The reformed psychedelic rockers, named after a clothing shop in their native Oldham, found fame in the late eighties and early nineties as part of the “Madchester” music scene. What marked the band out from their peers was Clint Boon’s distinctive organ sound weaving its melodies through their records. The Inspirals, as they were known, never achieved the fame of some of their contemporaries like the recently reformed Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, whom they recently supported.
Central Station is Wrexham and North Wales’ premier live music venue, regularly playing host to rock, pop and indie acts, as well as club nights. Other upcoming gigs include rockers Skindred, Northern Ireland’s Therapy?, ex-Echo & The Bunnymen frontman Ian McCulloch, indie darlings The Subways and tribute bands Limehouse Lizzy and Hi-On Maiden.
Radio One’s Huw Stephens will also be Djing at the launch night of Central Station’s new Propaganda club night on September 28th. Propaganda is part of a regular club night across 5-countries that attracts over 25,000 alternative music lovers every week. It will be held every Friday from 10.30 to 3.30am.
