Big Music Meets: Irwin Sparkes (The Hoosiers)

The Hoosiers have a chain of smash hits under their belt, from ‘Worried About Ray’ and ‘Goodbye Mr A’, to their No.1 album ‘The Trick To Life’. None of this would have been possible without their lead vocalist, Irwin Sparkes.

Irwin sat down with Big Music to discuss his colourful career, how The Hoosiers were almost called The Crafty Butchers! And how he is grateful that the National Lottery has been able to keep his favourite venue, The Roundhouse in business.
