Thread: Cardiacs--where to start?

  1. #3601
    I just searched Cardiacs on the BBC website and lo and behold I found the actual listing. It will be on Riley's show on BBC Radio 6 on 17 Jan at 1900 GMT. Read this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00021wq

    "Plus archive sessions from Thomas Tantrum, Cardiacs, Bauhaus and Beth Gibbons."


    So cassette recorders at the ready.

    Thx.

    Garage Concerts disc one today. A Wooden Fish on Wheels - I REALLY love the original, but this live one is also fucking glorious - the ska guitar stuff with Tim/Kavus is so damn powerful but also so fun! The riff is brilliant and the chord changes are bloody brilliant!
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    I cant think of one single tune from the garage concerts where I would prefer the original studio recording. Maybe in a few cases I would prefer another live version.

    Listening to some of Tim Smith's Extra Special OceanLandWorld tonight over a beer or two. What a great album this was. Astonishing, really. I love it so much.

    I only see guitars, bass, and drums in Garage Concerts videos. Where are the keyboard sounds coming from?

    Funny thing about that cut - Babba hates his playing on that tune. LOL

    Really, that's cool. There is a certain charm to the originals for sure - Tim's voice is different and there is a certain 'vintage vibe' that is priceless. The Kavus band (Garage) was the (then) current evolution of the band at that time - SO ferocious and SO tight - its almost not to be believed, but of course the Rotten Shed is living proof. Garage concerts might be my favorite "air guitar" album of all time - no shit. And if I had my magical genie wish of pretty much any band I could have played in (in some deranged musical fantasy world), it would have probably been that band (or maybe Hatfield 1975). Live Cardiacs in general is just the best imo.
