Former Blackhole frontman, Richard Carter joins new band, Pariso

We were rather fond of Hertfordshire hardcore rock ‘n’ roll mob, Blackhole so when they decided to call it quits after only one album, we were a bit miffed. Vocalist Richard Carter, however, has just joined grimy London hardcore argh-meisters, Pariso! Hooray!

We had a chat to Richard Carter and he said:

I’m really excited about finally getting back into playing live again and writing. At the minute it’s all songs they had done with Mazz, and they’re all awesome so I’m looking forward to writing with them and seeing how it comes together.

He also quite rightly pointed out:

It is a different vibe but if I joined or started another riffy, rock ‘n’ roll band people would just think I’m trying to have Blackhole pt.2.

While Pariso are off playing a few shows up North over the next few days, Carter doesn’t join up with his new bandmates until 06 April at Bournemouth Ibar. It’s because he’s got a job.

Did you know that Pariso are Alice Dellal’s favourite band? Dunno if she actually said so but she whipped her hair at them once.
