There’s no greater joy than listening to your favorite band from when you were fifteen and realizing they still totally hold up.

Specifically, Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine.

I relistened to their first five albums recently, and wow. A mix of punk, dance beats and puns, they’re the exact sort of band I wanted to join when I was young enough to want to join a band.

Also: Best name for a band in rock.

Are they as good as I think they are?

Perhaps not.

Still, they remind me of my youth, and I love them.

And that’s enough…


  1. I've had the opposite - listen to a band I loved as a teenager and cringed in disgust!

  2. But, are they still together and can you see them on a retro tour?

  3. I haven't had this experience yet. No idea how they will hold up.
