Brixton Memories Needed
I am attempting to write a mini book (about 100 pages or so) about
Carter’s fourteen gigs at the Brixton Academy – as we lead up to the
15th and the last one.
The plan is to finish this by late October
and publish it right away for a few quid as an ebook. This won’t be a
Carter biog (Jim Bob has already brilliantly done that) but instead will
focus on some amazing gigs Carter have played at (what I think is)
London’s most iconic venue.
The mini book will be the story of
what happened at each gig. I’ll look at what tour it was from, where
they were in their career at this point and all the bonkers things that
happened. I’ll have interviews with key figures like the support bands
and the promoters. And even Jim Bob and Fruity themselves will be made
to say something.
I also wanted to hear from you lot though. If
you have anything interesting to say about any Carter Brixton gig send
me an email. I’m after your memories, like one of those dream catchers
(or something). How was it as a sixteen year old going for Brixton to
the first time to see Carter? How did you feel in 2007 when you heard
they were getting back together for another gig? Basically I want to
hear about anything to do with Carter and Brixton, and what the gigs
have meant to you. I will try and include as many contributions as
possible and I’ll give anyone a credit who I use. Get writing is what I
So if you have anything to say please message me here on this page.
I have included the list of all the Brixton gigs below to jog your memories.
I really want to finish this so please help me out! For once I will finish something I start…
