MEET THE ‘OTHER’ CARTER

IN­TRO­DUC­ING JONATHAN, THE THIRD EL­DEST SON OF HOUSE CARTER AND DE­SCRIBED BY HIS SIB­LINGS AS “TER­RI­FY­INGLY IN­TEL­LI­GENT”…

Kerrang! (UK) - - Carter Brothers -

AL­RIGHT, JONATHAN. DO YOU SHARE A SIM­I­LAR MU­SIC TASTE TO ANY OF YOUR BROTH­ERS? “My mu­sic taste is a bit dif­fer­ent to all of my broth­ers. While I lis­ten to a lot of what they do, I en­joy an eclec­tic mix. The Gaslight An­them and Biffy Clyro are two that I’d say ev­ery­one would agree on. I’d say Steph’s taste in mu­sic would be most like mine due to the di­ver­sity of it.”

WHILE THE OTHER GUYS ARE IN BANDS, YOU WORK IN COM­PUTER PRO­GRAM­MING… HOW DID YOU GET INTO THAT? “I work in com­puter pro­gram­ming and I used to be a videog­ra­pher. I toured with Gal­lows doc­u­ment­ing life on the road and putting to­gether tour di­aries and other videos. After my last pro­ject with them crashed out in spec­tac­u­lar fash­ion, I was pretty dis­il­lu­sioned and broke. I took a job do­ing cler­i­cal work for my dad and was in­tro­duced to code through him. I en­joy mak­ing things, and the puz­zles in soft­ware de­vel­op­ment are an ad­dic­tive pas­sion.”

BUT YOU DO PLAY BASS AND HAVE BEEN IN BANDS, RIGHT? “I tried to learn to play bass while I was younger be­cause I’m lazy and, in my head, four strings had to be eas­ier than six. It was, but I am no bass player. I re­spect mu­si­cians greatly for ev­ery­thing they give us, but that’s not the way I chose to go. My place in that cir­cus is be­hind the lens, not in front.”
