Between 1987 and 1997, Jim Bob rode a decade-long rollercoaster from the UK’s pub and club scene to the top of the album charts and back again, leaving behind a trail of hit records, legendary gigs and enough t-shirts to clothe a small nation. As recounted in his first autobiography, the critically acclaimed ‘Goodnight Jim Bob’, Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine toured the world and sold the records, during the UK’s last period of genuine musical free-for-all, mutating from a two man and drum machine combo to an extensive six (sometimes seven) piece group along the way. But then the rollercoaster stopped…..
So what next for a recovering former rock star? Whatever happened to that bloke from Carter?
