Streetlamp is my Home – Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets) Hoodie
Artist Statement from Clint: “When I was asked to design something, I immediately thought of a song I wrote back in 1987. It was a song called ‘Joe’ which became a popular Inspiral Carpets single a couple of years later. I wrote it about a homeless man I knew whose nickname was Joe. Unfortunately, he never got to hear it as he died the week after I wrote it. He walked the streets of Ashton-Under-Lyne collecting scrap metal to earn a few pennies to help pay for his food and cigarettes. He had a great spirit. He had fought for his country in the armed forces. His memory stays with me.”
The MCR@Night Campaign draws on the amazing Manchester music scene, but also how there are two very different experiences of the city after dark. Whilst some people are attending gigs and seeing their favourite artists, others are at risk of cold, wet, violent behaviour, and lack of food. For every hoodie purchased as part of this campaign, one is donated to someone in need. Your purchase will keep someone warm at night. It’s really that simple.
All orders are made on a pre-order basis. Orders will close on December 24th. Production will then begin and orders will ship out from January 6th. All donated hoodies will be given to guests at our Christmas Project regardless of purchase date.
