Back in the days when "indie" wasn't synonymous with no sales and no TOTP appearances, Carter USM briefly ruled the world with a collection of great singles, albums and incendiary live apperances (not to mention knocking over Philip Schofield in front of 11 million live viewers on BBC1).
1992 - The Love Album entered the UK album charts at No. 1 on its release in May 1992. Highlights include the band's highest single placing for radio-friendly chant of The Only Living Boy In New Cross, the punk explosion of While You Were Out and the Marc Almond-style waltz of England - British melancholy at its best.
Both parts of Carter USM are alive and well - Jim now solo having recorded for a while with Jim's Super Stereoworld, and Les with his punk outfit Abdoujaparov, as well as his excellent new career presenting an indie/punk/glam show on local radio station Phoenix FM.

I love this album... sadly I gave it to my ex when we split. Still missing it 5 yrs on I ordered it... but received The Love Album as per the photo.... a 2 cd various artists.. full of schmultzy love songs.. so very disappointed. Wasnt offered a chance to request a replacement just to return .. so I am.. and sadly have ordered it from somewhere else because I have no way to be sure same thing won't happen again and I wanted this cd for a car trip and wasn't prepared to wait.

This was Carter at their most popular, having blown little long-haired indie kids away with their impossibly catchy and energetic 30 Something. This album was highly anticipated, and (if I remember correctly) went in at No1 in the album charts. It is full to the brim with catchy and extraordinarily satisfying melodies. Their popularity was often explained in the press as being a result of their cockney cheekiness, and the fact that Fruitbat jumped on Phillip Scholfield. The fact is, however, their songs were layered, sometimes beautiful, and always highly addictive. They knew how to write a tune, by God! Their song writing talent should not be underestimated. Listen to those bass lines and those chord changes. Some are just inspired. Oasis came in and blew us all away with a formula that wasn't a million miles away from what Carter were doing, i.e. incredibly catchy, layered songs with a powerful, rough-edged voice on the lyrics.

Played the life out of the CD I bought when it first came out - then lost it...
Bought the download for my iPod, well pleased - doesn't sound any better
or worse than the CD.

I have 3 or 4 Carter albums but this is probably my favourite overall for it's mixture of well crafted, clever and downright rocking tracks. If you have more than a passing interest in this duo, you must have this.

Living in New Cross at the time of its release, it would have been rude not too buy this and the melancholy ballad the Impossible Dream (made famous again recently in the epic Honda advert) sealed the deal. These boys really know how to write songs, with wordplay (Do Re Me So Far So Good) second only to Paul Heaton and perhaps Morrissey IMO.

From the James Bond-esque opening rifts of 1993 to the powerful The Impossible Dream, this CD has no weak tracks (apart from perhaps the accordion in England, which just doesn't do it for me) only well produced and sometimes edgy ones. Listen out for the occasional Bowie/Ziggy Stardust influence too.

Carter have their own grown-up rocking indie style with their own lyrical take on the world. Superb stuff.
