Rod Warner’s review of “The Mariner’s Rest”
and “Essays in Mutliation And Despair”
Carrot’s appearance at Club Sporadic, Loughborough
of Black Carrot supporting The Fall, 24th March 2006
“Sometimes you find the strangest
things in the strangest places.”
“Black Carrot come from the sleepy provincial town of Market
Harborough, where they have clearly evolved in splendid isolation.
A trio with drums, bass and saxophones, they play a fierce, largely
improvised set of what they themselves style krautrock-inspired
space jazz folk. Certainly, if you have any fondness for Can or
Faust, or perhaps more recently the American band Morphine, you
are going to find something to love about Black Carrot.”
