Your most valued Carter possessions.

Postby RKP » Tue May 25, 2004 9:02 pm

I would never sell any of my Carter gear ever - but loads of people do which i can't understand.Is there anything you own you consider ' not for sale'

My personal faves are:

A German comic/cd set.

I rather like the Carter condom set i have also - they are rather out of date now.

Related possession would be the Abdou Murder 7" - it's numbered 69 :D - how childish am i.

None of my Carter stuff is ever going near e-bay or a charity shop........ As for favourite possesions i'd have to say my signed white Carter T-Shirt which still has the blood on it from the 1997 gig at Exeter Cavern and also the crazy bright green shirts from the 1995 tours and, being the sentimental sod that I am, i'd have to go with the 30 Something Shirt that the missus got us for xmas last year.....Records wise there's nowt that I could ever let go for one reason or another........

I was after a good ol' workhorse sampler a couple of years back, and as luck would have it, Fruity was flogging the Akai sampler that he used on tons of Carter stuff circa 91/92 on eBay. Many of the samples are still on it.

That said, and I'm only remembering this as I type, he never did send on the instruction manual for it like he said he would. Did Jim ever dig it out, Mr Fruit? Without it, most of the functions are completely unfathomable.

i'd have to say that this is my mate's old driving license with Fruity's and Jim's autographs from their gig in finland WHERE I WAS NOT and which is still my worst carter experience, because it seems that all my friends were there.

of course, beacuse I was not at the gig, it is fitting that my friend never remembered to send me the drivers license though he promised a lot of times :(

all the gig memories I have.
;)

I'll never sell any of my carter stuff anyway, but no-one can take these away from me apart from if I bang my head too hard or something and then I won't remember who they were anyway.
:D

My memory of Les asking me to play guitar for him at Jims sisters benefit gig and my mate Henry practically pissed his pants at meeting Carter on his birthday.

And the moment when we support them at Brixton Academy when they reform..............
I wish :lol:

I've got a copy of 101 Damnations on CD on Big Cat? Someone once told me that was rare???

Is it? :?:

However to answer the question... my most valued possession is my sheriff fatman clock that I made out of a 7 inch single, which is absolutely rambunctious!

Peace

Most valued possession? Jim's book, because it's the newest

Most valued memory - being unpopular in the sixth form because I was the only one that liked them. Kind of set the tone for the rest of my adult life (so far)

I don't have a lot of merch beyond the music and a handful of t-shirts. I am quite happy with my Jamie Wednesday records and my Jim Bob shirt. I don't know if they're what I'd grab in case of fire but I do like them quite a lot.
I think I might have the Don Quixote X-Mas card someplace.
