You fat, what?

Really, really sad to hear of the death of Jon Beast. Such an essential part of the Carter USM experience for me in 88-92. I only ever had brief dealings with the man in 89 but, despite his wayward reputation, he was generous to me. Even got me into the Brixton 91 afterparty, which was an oddly quiet affair.

If you want to contribute towards the funeral, you can do so here:

And this is one of my best memories of Carter. The excitement of this little duo singing about South London and following them from the matchbox of the Venue New Cross to the ‘made it’ venue of the Brixton Academy.

There’s a whole gig’s worth of Carter here:
