THE INSPIRAL CARPETS – along with the Stone Roses and the Happy Mondays – made their name as part of the whole ‘Madchester’ scene, with a string of classic singles and a lucrative line in iconic T-shirts.

Between 1989 and 1995, the band notched up 15 hits and four Top 20 albums before disbanding. In 2003, they re-formed and have been playing sporadically ever since. In 2011, they reunited with original singer Stephen Holt and are now working on a brand new album for Cherry Red – their first for two decades.

Back in mid-1989, after the Inspirals had launched their own Cow label, they released the mail-order cassette DUNG 4. This album’s worth of demos had been recorded around New Year’s 1987, boasting unique songs as well as versions of tracks which they later re-recorded. Dung 4 went on to sell some 8,000 copies but has never been reissued on vinyl or CD.

Officially sanctioned by the Inspirals and remastered with help from their organist Clint Boon, Dung 4 is now expanded with the addition of four tracks from their earlier demo tape, Cow, recorded in May 1987.
