Carter USM: Sex Mechanics

Push, Melody Maker, 6 August 1988

"I DUNNO, REALLY. We just looked at a pot of jam on the table and thought, 'Let's call it Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine'. No, actually, we opened a phone book and picked the first name we saw. It was in the London L to R section. That's not true either. It's a secret and I'm not telling. These are dangerous times. It's all to do with sponsorship and contraceptives. Yeah, that's it."
