Biography

Clint Boon, is the Inspiral Carpets’ keyboard player/vocalist/songwriter who, since 2004 has become a permanent fixture on the airwaves of Manchester. He has worked as a radio presenter for several Manchester based radio stations, 96.2 The Revolution, XFM Manchester, Radio X, BBC Radio Manchester and XS Manchester.

Believe it or not, 2020 marks Clint’s 45th year as a DJ. He set up a mobile disco business in 1975 at the age of 15. He’s pretty much DJ’d ever since. For the last 25 years, Clint has carved out a successful career as one of the UK’s most sought after club DJs. His weekly Saturday night at Manchester’s South Nightclub is now in it’s nineteenth year, the longest running weekly club night residency in the city. He also DJs around the UK and internationally.

Since 1985, Clint’s work with the Inspiral Carpets has taken him around the world several times and resulted in many hit singles and five highly acclaimed studio albums. The band are seen as one of the definitive ‘Madchester’ bands alongside Happy Mondays, James and The Stone Roses. Until recently, Inspiral Carpets were still very active on the live music scene having played recently not only in the UK but in 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 in Rochdale. He helped Gary Mounfield (Mani) become The Stone Roses bass player. He took Noel Gallagher around the world as a roadie for the Inspirals and introduced him to the music industry. In the late 90s he recorded two albums under the name ‘The Clint Boon Experience’ which featured vocals by an unknown opera singer from Fleetwood named Alfie Boe.

In recent years, Clint has also become a mainstay in the world of radio. Since 2004, he has presented primetime shows on a daily or weekly basis for various stations including BBC Radio Manchester, The Revolution, XFM Manchester and Radio X. He is currently presenting the weekday drive time show on XS Manchester.

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.

In January 2016, Clint launched a weekly podcast ‘Storytime With Boon’ which received rave reviews and won the Bronze award for ‘Podcast of the Year’ in the 2016 ARIA Awards.

Clint is a father of five. He and his wife, Charlie, live in Stockport with their three boys, Oscar, Hector and Cassius. He also has two children, Harley and Max from his first marriage.
