About Carter USM
Carter USM, which stands for Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, formed in 1987 and comprises of Jim Bob and Les Fruitbat Carter.
Difficult to define, they are a cross between indie, punk, rock and pop. They landed four Top 10 albums and 14 Top 40 hits during 1987-1997 and reached the peak of their fame in 1992. They were responsible for the huge hits The Only Living Boy In New Cross and Sheriff Fatman.
However, in 1997 Carter USM called it a day. They went a 10 year break but in 2007 they reformed for two shows at Brixton Academy and Glasgow Barrowlands. Fans were delighted and Carter USM tickets sold out for both shows with the Carter USM Brixton show selling out five thousand tickets in just a few days.
The following years they performed several shows. In 2008 they performed at Birmingham and Brixton Academy. Once again Carter USM tickets sold out. The next year they performed their first four albums in venues in London with tickets selling out again.
Despite their huge comeback success Carter USM are now set to play their final ever show. They will once again return to Brixton Academy. They revealed on their website that it will be one huge party that celebrates the amazing shows they’ve enjoyed since their return in 2007.
Ahead of the Brixton Academy performance they will appear at the Bearded Theory festival, which takes place in May.
