2012 sees Inspiral Carpets re-group with their original singer Stephen Holt taking over lead vocal duties. Rediscovering their garage band roots, Inspirals will be recording their first material in 15 years coupled with worldwide live concerts. On the 27th of July, the Concorde2 in Brighton brings you the psychedelic sounds of Inspiral Carpets, together with local support from Psycho Babble. Along with classics such as 'Commercial Reign' and 'Joe', Inspiral Carpets will also be showcasing brand new material during their 2012 tour. Prepare for chaotic rhythms, a bassist who cannot be ignored, the legendary organ sound of Clint Boon and pure punk ferocity. Along with the reunions of The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, it is clear that the Madchester movement has been well and truly revived!
Psycho Babble are an exciting five piece band from Southern England who have toured with a variety of artists, including The Bluetones, The Soundtrack of Our Lives, Chelsea, The Rifles, Stiff Little Fingers, Shed Seven and The Undertones, to name but a few. Their excellent debut album "Sounding Off", received positive radio and press coverage throughout the UK and USA, and attracted attention from several industry figures, including famous producer Glynn Johns. The band's eclectic range of thought provoking material draws from their 60's, Punk and Indie influences, and switches between soulful numbers to blistering all out songs.
