Black Carrot self-described their music as Krautjazz/Rock/Folk and were a hybrid of those elements and more with a music that bridged satirical pop rewrites through to freeform improv avant-garde. The band also led a dual life, with other conceptual projects involving storyteller Nigel Parkin. Since the band split members went on to the following projects: The Bat Niven, Fangtrouser and Scaley Fuego.

Black Carrot (Market Harborough) are a vibrant quintet who perform new-wave krautrock jazz madness that oozes rock with a psychotic edge. Fierce and abstract yet serving the concept of the song, their unique sound nods towards Beefheart and Pere Ubu but is shot through with flavours of New York jazz skronk, and the loosest, funkiest Krautrock

While the band's first album was created over a relatively long period of time, the follow-up album, Blackfield II, was created in one short burst of activity. Wilson and Geffen worked on their respective projects throughout the end of 2005, but in early 2006 Wilson moved to Israel for six months to work on the album. Wilson performed lead. or co-vocals on all tracks except "Miss U", which Geffen performed all vocals on. The album was released in February 2007 in Europe and March 2007 in the United States

Housed in a sleeve that's a pastiche of Franco Battiato's "Clic" the Black Carrot CD debut "Cluk" (Moon City Music MCITYM02) is a surprising release from beginning to end. Not least in that none of it resembles Battiato, although the same spirit of daring invention is there, and that it pushes through the boundaries of styles and genre.The disc opens quite moodily with The Taming Of The Shoe as we linger a little with a scuttling bass amble joined by very breathy flute like tones from the bass recorder, building to a melodic framework to introduce the song, semi-muffled and expressive, as though Stewart's thinking the vocals in his head, the lyrics are equally bizarre. The Sweat Of The White Man tends to feel a little more jazzy, a bit Volcano The Bear cum Art Bears instrumentally, with nice raspy winds, Stewart kind of half singing talking/relating a tale to us, like a very Edgar Allen Poe depiction of paranoia. Cubic Brothers (presented in two parts) musically transports us back 25 years. It almost sounds like a Karl Blake song from the Lemon Kittens, raucous, punky and wild. I assume this is Oliver singing, and with such gusto that it's quite a surprise after what has gone before. But, that's the nature of Black Carrot - keep the listener guessing as to what's next! Misha Mo opens with what sounds like someone messing around with kitchen utensils and percussion in a big wooden box, transforming into a kind understated folk chant. A Man Is Not A Spider songwise reminds me of the Residents, playful with a jazzy Canterbury-esque cum Henry Cow touch to it. The Smary Marshes On Its Hammock is a spooky wordless vocal chant. Lorelei takes us to Black Carrot's idea of psychedelia, with some wonderful esoteric vocals, against what sounds like a lute, all bathed in shimmering reverb. It reminds me of someone, Tractor or The Way We Live, I think. Aptly Our Final Destination closes the album, featuring bowed bass and other tonalities, topped by a sax solo, finishing the album perfectly.
