Tom Hingley is best known as the former vocalist and ex-frontman of Manchester legends Inspiral Carpets. The band were one of the most iconic to emerge from the 90s Manchester scene with a sting of hits including ‘This Is How It Feels’, ‘Joe’, ‘Saturn 5’ and many, many more.
Carpet Burns is Tom Hingley’s account of his life as lead singer of Inspiral Carpets, one of the big three bands of the Manchester movement who, along with The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays, changed music for a generation. Tom’s own words provide an account of what it felt like to be in the eye of a pop hurricane and what happens when the hits end and the arguments kick in.
This is a fascinating and unique book about a unique and fascinating life. Memoirs are made of this. – David Quantick
