I think they really are the second best band I never heard in my life.
All albums are astonishing, Tim Smith is a real genius.
Try this:

I recommend you all to see also the "all that glitters is a mares nest" video, I never saw a band live play with such fire, fury and precision...

Hi!

http://www.myspace.com/cardiacsgarageconcerts (that is even better)

then just search them on cardiacs.com or .org!

I was lucky enough to tour with Dominic Luckman when we were
part of Julian Reagan's band 'Mice'.
A great drummer and... a total sense of humour!

From Steven Wilson's Facebook page:
I've contributed a cover version of Cardiacs "Stoneage Dinosaurs" to the Tim Smith tribute album, which will be released on 6th December. You can pre-order now, and I urge anyone that has ever been touched by Tim's music to do so, as he really is one of rock's few living geniuses. As I'm sure many of you know Tim had a very serious heart attack in 2008 and has been in hospital for the last 2 years. The proceeds from the album will go to trying to get Tim back home. The album also includes contributions from (among many others) Oceansize, and another of my musical heroes Andy Partridge (XTC), and pre-orders will also include a free download of a second disc.

I thought they were quite good, tight, and imaginative...but it's not one of my genres. I probably wont put the time in to grow the engrams for it.

Well, Calvin in my not so humble opinion I think you have and are just experiencing a lapse of memory. Think a while and you will see.

A typical reaction! :)
Thanks anyway for listening ...

Andy Partridge and Mike Keneally might be wrong then!

Oh, the Cardiacs, I thought you meant the Cardigans.

Absolutely love them. I'm surprised more Zappa fans don't get into these guys ... there's a lot of Zappa influence in their music. "RES" off of "A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window" always reminded me of Frank ... even Tim Smith's guitar solo is somewhat reminiscent of Frank's 80's guitar work. The last time I connected with an artist like I have with these guys was, no joke, Uncle Frank. Lot of fun!
