As singer with Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine Jim Bob had 14 top 40 singles, 4 top ten albums (including a number one), sold over a million records, toured the world and headlined Glastonbury. In 2007, ten years after initially splitting, Carter USM reformed for a series of huge sold out shows until they called it a day again in 2014.

Outside of Carter Jim Bob has had a long and varied solo music career. He has released ten solo albums and written songs for Ian Dury and for the 2006 Barbican production of Mark Ravenhill’s ’Dick Whittington & His Cat’. In August 2010 Jim Bob made his Edinburgh Fringe debut in the Ward and White musical ‘Gutted, A Revenger’s Musical’.

Jim Bob’s autobiography ‘Goodnight Jim Bob – On The Road With Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine’ (Cherry Red Books) was released to critical acclaim in 2004. The sequel ‘Jim Bob from Carter’ (Cherry Red Books) followed in 2019 to tons more praise.
Jim Bob (AKA J.B. Morrison) has written four novels –‘Storage Stories’ (Ten Forty Books), ‘Driving Jarvis Ham’ (Harper Collins), ‘The Extra Ordinary Life of Frank Derrick, Age 81’ , ‘Frank Derrick's Holiday of a Lifetime’ (Pan Macmillan), translated into eight different languages. In 2015 his fourth novel Frank Derrick’s Holiday of a Lifetime won the ‘Best Older Person’s Character in a Book, Film, TV or Radio Drama’ in Gransnet’s Older People in the Media Awards.
His fifth and six novels, ‘A Godawful Small Affair’/b/w ‘Harvey King Unboxes His Family’ (Cherry Red Books) are published together in March 2020.

Now, after a break from writing or recording new musical material of nearly seven years, Jim Bob will release a new album (Cherry Red Records) in August 2020.
