Carter USM – The Only Living Boy in New Cross



If ever there was a band who have improved in hindsight, this is it. As memory serves, Carter were deemed naff at the time.

Basing your lyrics entirely on puns and having the sort of ‘Techno’ backing track that would make Jeff Mills roll in his grave if he were dead certainly didn’t help.

Fast forward to 2014 and Carter prove themselves to have been actually just 20 years ahead of their time. Every cunt now has an undercut, wears ironic jumpers, plays awful synth music, goes to pseudo-raves and eulogises about living in da ghetto.

They even went so far as to be into New Cross before it was cool. Hipsters.
