Carter USM classic album giveaway

jimbondandfruitbatQuick history lesson for the uninitiated… Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine were a South London duo that bashed out awesome indie pop punk anthems with a social/political conscience in the early-90s. In our humble opinion, they were flipping brilliant. Carter’s foot-stomping, singalong music had a brain and a heart and touched a nerve with a fragmented Britain to the extent that they had a number one album, a bunch of Top 40 singles and headlined Glastonbury Festival in 1992.

After disbanding later in the same decade, it seemed we’d seen the last of Carter. Not so. A proposed one-off reunion in 2007 proved so popular that the duo put on a bunch more of these shows in the following years, selling out massive venues like Brixton Academy. The band’s two seminal LPs 30 Something and the number 1 follow-up, 1992 The Love Album, have recently been remastered and are now available in deluxe CD editions, each with a bonus disk of rarities/b-sides/live songs and ace new inlay cards.
