Inspiral Carpets Issue 1989 Demo

Carpets fans know that the group denoted all its releases with a “Dung” number.  Dung 4 was assigned to the band’s 1989 demo, a recording that have been unavailable for some time. That will change when Cherry Red–a great reissue label–will release Dung 4 on April 28.
