They were one of the bands at the forefront of the Madchester music scene.

Now, Inspiral Carpets’ former frontman Tom Hingley is bringing his band The Kar-pets to Blackpool.

He fronted the Manchester band from 1989 for six years, with hits such as Dragging Me Down and This Is How It Feels.

Tom says: “The songs are the stars, come along and hear them sung by the singer who originally sang them.

“This is a chance to truly indulge in nostalgia and to make it new for another generation.”

The Kar-Pets will be performing songs from the 30-plus years of the Inspiral Carpets as well as a selection of cover versions such as Gimme Shelter and Tainted Love.

A spokesman said: “Come and see the hits of a classic Manchester band playing near you soon.”

Tickets for the Waterloo Music Bar on Saturday, January 19, cost £6 in advance, £8 on the door.

* In an article in Saturday’s Gazette, it was stated Catfish Keith was playing the Waterloo on Sunday. This was incorrect, and the bluesman is there on Thursday.
