From Three Lobed:

-Late on May 31st information started to trickle out about how our
friend Tom Carter had been hospitalized in Europe with a case of
pneumonia. While details aren't really out yet, we hope everyone is
keeping this super-king raga rager in your thoughts. To help him deal
with what will certainly be unforeseen costs associated with
hospitalization abroad and the cancellation of some tour dates, we are
trying to cobble together some money to help him out. As such, we are
selling what few loose overstock copies we have of Tom's OOP
contribution to the "Oscillation III" CD series, "Skyline
Grinder" (http://threelobed.com/tlr/tlr047.html) we have on hand for
$10 each (postpaid in the US, $12 to Canada, $14.50 to all other
addresses) with all of the net proceeds going to Tom. Further, the
net proceeds from the next twenty copies of the epic Tom Carter +
Bardo Pond "4/23/03" 2xLP with "4/25/03" CD (http://threelobed.com/tlr/
tlr089.html) sold by mailorder will also go to Tom. Buy both for $35
postpaid in the US! Since this CD is otherwise out of print and these
copies sold are coming out of some personal stash copies, we have not
set up a PayPal button - please drop us a line to arrange payment.
Please keep Tom in your thoughts!

That Bardo / Carter collaboration is brilliant. Buy yourself a copy now, and get the additional warm feeling of having helped a sick man in a strange town.

This time 2 weeks ago I was getting ready to see Charalambides play OTO, Tom Carter gave me the setlist at the end of their set. I also spoke briefly to him the next night and he was interested in the recording of the show that I made.... I hope he recovers soon.

I ordered that LP today (been meaning to buy it for a while)

Charalambides have completely passed me by. I don't know if this makes me utterly cool (unlikely) or a bit of a twat.

Either way, I hope he gets better soon.

This Pookie

Im sure you know the feeling of someone testifying to the greatness of something you arent convinced by, I have a similar thing with Fushitsusha - all the people whose opinion i value tell me how earth-shattering they are, and I just dont see it. But thats how it should be innit, the whole reason groups like Charalambides exist are for people who want to sit back and take things in on their own terms, even if its not always what we want to get.

It makes you a person with your own opinion. Personally, I prefer Tom's solo work and Eleven TwentyNine to the Charalambides, who I find ok.

It's not that I don't like them. It's just that for a long time I never heard them and even now I've only heard a handful of songs.

But like I say I hope he recovers swiftly!

Me too, he's one of the good ones. I didn't really express myself as well as i could have above, the Charlamabides requires a commitment to listen to, one doesn't do chores and listen to them. Its very tasty stuff over all, comparing diesel to kush its all good.

Zaika was an excellent project he did with Marcia Bassett - I think there is a WFMU session on a free archive somewhere. There are several releases on cassette and CDr that are worth hunting down, the lp on Eclipse is ok as well, a little quieter than those.

He was supposed to play with Loren Conners next Monday as part of re month of Steve Gunn Mondays at Zebulon.

From Volcanic Tongue:

TOM CARTER APPEAL


17 June 2012: While on a tour of Europe with Charalambides, Tom Carter was hospitalized in Berlin, Germany and has been in intensive care for over two weeks. He is currently being treated for serious complications of pneumonia. At this time, there remain many uncertainties regarding his condition, which continues to be variable and evolving. Hospitalization and a projected recovery could last at a minimum many weeks and possibly months.

The consideration and support that has already been expressed, during this time, is of great comfort to Tom’s family.

Many concerned individuals have asked about sending cards and flowers, all of which is greatly appreciated. However, the intensive care unit is not equipped to accommodate gifts. We will be sure to let everyone know if and when the hospital is able to do so. Additionally, Tom is currently unable to receive phone calls or visitors. Many individuals have also inquired as to what other assistance they can provide. Due to the severity of Tom’s illness, his hospitalization away from home, and the projection of a possible prolonged recovery, Tom and his family will certainly incur a more than significant financial burden. There will be medical bills as well as possible travel and housing expenses. It is thought that a considerable portion, if not all, of Tom’s recovery must take place in Berlin.

A fund is being established to receive donations to offset these costs. Information on how to contribute will follow as soon as it is available. Tom Carter’s generosity and modesty as a musician and friend, coupled with his dedication to a vision of spiritual music as transformative force, provides us all with a rare example of creative and personal possibilities intertwined. Let us keep Tom, whom we cherish, in our thoughts and attune our minds to his full recovery.

Please forward this notice to anyone who may be concerned. We will post updates here as more information becomes available.

Volcanic Tongue is donating all proceeds from sales of Charalambides and Tom Carter and Christina Carter releases to Tom Carter and his family. Blackest Rainbow Recordings have also very generously offered all their available releases to VT with all proceeds going direct to Tom’s fund. Click the links below to browse all the releases that are part of the appeal.

this saddens me greatly to hear this

I was privileged to see Charalambides play at some house in DC back in 06, and sat on an amp inches from Christina Carter, the most intimate performance I have ever seen

got to talk to Tom again a few weeks later in England at ATP, I remember they played opposite SY in that side stage area, and got to say a few nice words to Tom later on

I hope he pulls through, such a nice soul

For the last two years, I think there's no musician i listened to more than to Tom Carter.
I still think some of the songs were a bit too long, all in all Exile remains one of my favourites from last year. The Eleven Twenty Nine one on Northern Spy was a highlight aswell.

Hopefully he'll get better quick.

From Volcanic Tongue:


24 June 2012: More substantial details are coming in as to a potential recovery schedule for Tom Carter while he remains in hospital in Berlin. The doctors are now proposing a plan to keep Tom in intensive care for approximately two more weeks before transferring him to a medical rehabilitation facility for an additional month somewhere in Germany. Afterwards Tom will return to the US for further evaluation, medical care, and convalescence. However, this portion of his treatment and recovery remains largely unknown as to its nature and timescale and indeed, this is a best-case scenario and subject to change according to the vagaries of Tom’s condition.

In order to address the considerable financial difficulties that are sure to arise as a result of a projected lengthy recuperation, Christina Carter (Charalambides) and Cory Rayborn (Three Lobed Recordings) are establishing the Robert Thomas Carter Irrevocable Trust to care for all of Tom’s current and future needs. Information on how to make your personal donation directly to the trust fund will be available shortly.

Also, in order to more efficiently coordinate and consolidate efforts to assist Tom, the Jump Arts organization has graciously agreed to donate the http://helptomcarter.org/ site to the Robert Thomas Carter Irrevocable Trust. The website will be updated to reflect this transfer, so that interested and concerned parties will be able to continue to visit http://helptomcarter.org/ and make their personal gift directly to Tom’s fund. Until the transfer is complete, Jump Arts will temporarily accept donations on behalf of the RTC Trust. In addition, all monies Jump Arts has already collected will be assigned to the trust.

Volcanic Tongue would like to thank everyone who has purchased merchandise or donated monies to Tom thus far. In the coming weeks we will be announcing some very special donations to Tom’s fund that will be available for sale via Volcanic Tongue, including a new EP from Eleven Twenty-Nine (Tom’s duo with Marc Orleans of Sunburned Hand Of The Man), a reissue of a very limited Charalambides live performance + interview DVD, rare CD-Rs/CDs and cassettes from Christina Carter, Scorces and Charalambides (generously donated by Robin Barnes of Isolde) and an original copy of Richard Youngs and Simon Wickham-Smith’s massively rare private press 2xLP debut, Lake, kindly donated by Richard himself. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds for the new Rotten Masters (Richard Youngs + Andrew Paine) 7” has been donated by Sonic Oyster Records. Keep an eye on our site for many more one-off fund raising contributions.

For more details and updates on Tom’s condition, please go here: http://volcanictongue.com/tomcarterappeal -- Please re-post and tweet this link if you can.
