Since 1985, his work with the Inspirals has taken him around the world several times and resulted in many hit singles and four highly acclaimed studio albums. The band are seen as one of the definitive ‘Madchester’ bands alongside Happy Mondays, James and The Stone Roses. Inspiral Carpets have just released their first new album in twenty years and are back doing gigs around the world with recent trips to Argentina, Spain, Greece and Italy.
Clint has been instrumental in helping some of our most important bands achieve their success. He recorded Elbow’s first ever demo in his loft studio. He helped Gary Mounfield (Mani) become The Stone Roses bass player. He took Noel Gallagher around the world as his roadie and introduced him to the music industry.
For the last 25 years, he has also carved out a successful career as one of the country’s most sought after club djs. His weekly Saturday night at Manchester’s South Nightclub is now in its 18th year, the longest running weekly club night in the city.
Clint also dabbles in the world of acting. He played a small role opposite Steve Coogan in the film ‘24 Hour Party People’ and has been involved in several other independent short film projects. He spends a lot of time visiting schools and colleges talking about his career and is constantly involved in fundraising for various charities.
