Carter – Hello Good Evening Welcome & Goodbye (Live at Maida Vale)
Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine (frequently shortened to Carter USM) were an English indie punk band formed in 1987 by singer Jim “Jim Bob” Morrison and guitarist Les “Fruitbat” Carter. They made their name with a distinctive style of power pop, fusing samples, sequenced basses and drum machines with rock ‘n’ roll guitars and off-beat wordplay-loaded lyrics. Hello Good Evening Welcome & Goodbye is a live release from their last ever radio session. It was for Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6Music show which Steve himself had been instrumental in making happen. The hour long career-spanning set was performed to a small but extremely passionate crowd of fans at the legendary Maida Vale studios in West London, making for a very special occasion.
