Jim Bob, aka James Robert Morrison, formerly of Carter USM, blah blah blah, is going out on tour. Great. The reasoning behind this madness is the success of ‘Goodnight Jim Bob’, which was a regular clubnite packing out the Hope & Anchor in north London last year (which I never got to go to cos they always bloody clashed with the DiS gig nights).
Jim has released approx 300 albums since Carter split in 1997, and now you non-Londoners get to see a selection of it live. Expect Carter tunes as well and probably lots of pissed guys in the audience chanting “you fat bastard,” just to be really original and clever.
