The band are seen as one of the definitive ‘Madchester’ bands alongside Happy MondaysJames and The Stone Roses. Inspiral Carpets are still very active on the live music scene having played recently not only in the UK but in Argentina, Spain, Greece and Italy.

When discussing the Manchester music scene recently, Clint said “I can honestly say I never experienced any rivalry from other bands, just a wonderful amount of support and encouragement. Manchester is like that. Even now, it’s the most supportive city, especially the music community.”
