Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine were a duo, threeo and eventually sixxo formed by South London friends Jim Morrison and Les Carter who made their name with a mix of social commentary, puns, loud guitars and electronic pop music.
They had fourteen top forty singles in the UK and released seven studio albums, one of which reached number one in the UK charts. During their ten year career, Carter USM – as they became known – played nearly 800 live gigs all over the world. Ten years of riots, strip searches, murder accusations, rugby tackling childrens’ television presenters and almost meeting Gilbert O’Sullivan. This is their story… some would say it’s a rollercoaster ride, but Jim Bob describes it as more like a “1980’s sporty hatchback”.
