Biography

Derby, England, UK (1998 – present)

Paul Carter originates in Derby, England, UK and plays what has become known as acoustic punk. A sound that can’t be described, you’ve just got to hear it for yourself.

Paul first got into punk at the age of 14, after seeing The Adverts on TOTP performing ‘Gary Gilmore’s Eyes’. By 1978, Paul and a couple of mates had formed a crappy band which changed its name every day and by 1979 they’d all fallen out with each other.

By the end of 1980, Paul had done his first gig, playing guitar for Ammunition at their one and only gig at Quarndon Church Hall. The drummer didn’t turn up, so the gig was done without him, and Ammunition split up straight after.

In 1981 Paul had formed Syndicate Anarchy with a few mates. Songs were written, rehearsals were held and that’s as far as it went.

Then, a year later, Paul joined Derby band The Collaborators. That was his most successful band to date, managing 4 gigs playing guitar for them, before splitting up in early 1983.

Not to be deterred by the failure of yet another band, Paul joined AVOID in mid-1983 as rhythm guitarist and, towards the end of the year when the singer left, became lead vocalist. Paul spent until 1992 as the ‘Avoid’ singer, playing gigs all over England, including two gigs at ‘The 100 Club’, and support to English Dogs on their ‘Invasion of the porky men’ tour.
