    This makes Tim sound as if he should have a much bigger nose, an ugly mustache, a constantly sarcastic expression, and play an SG. Which isn't a comparison I would usually make.

    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    Oh boy... I think I watch this once a week - and that's been going on for years now.

    These guys popped up on the Cardiacs FB page today. Sounds like things we probably should listen to.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    There has been an update by Mary on Tims rehab status posted on FB.
    Probably not everyone has seen that so here goes:

    UPDATED STORY, SATURDAY 6TH JULY, 2019
    There is a saying (probably): when you need to make omelettes, life has a way of breaking your eggs. This is certainly the case for Tim, as has been proven time and time again during his eleven-year period of duress.
    When the original statement for this JustGiving page was written, all of it was completely true…However, trying and testing circumstances have now changed it into the most barefaced and egregious of lies, which is not OUR fault. The time has come to update the information here before we all get found out and humiliated in front of our peers.
    Bluntly, things did not work out as had been hoped with Tim’s previous abode. The promised improvements and miracle therapies were not forthcoming. In fact, as time went on, it became evident that even the most basic physiotherapy was to be denied him there, so our team brought in outside help and paid for it with your loving offerings. Thank you. It made an enormous difference to his physical and emotional well-being.
    We assembled a goodly collection of therapists, rolled up our sleeves, and started work. Meanwhile, the shambles at Tim’s rehab unit went from bad to worse. It became unsafe there. This did not go unnoticed by the authorities, and, in response to several anonymous tip-offs, an emergency council investigation resulted in the closure of his unit in late spring and all the residents being shipped out with only a few days’ notice.
    It was an anxious and frantic time, but things have worked out far, far better than we could have hoped. Tim is now in a new facility, receiving top notch treatment from a multidisciplinary team with links to a specialist university unit. It’s early days, but the therapists there have said they are tremendously encouraged by his response to their ministrations so far. They made incredible promises for a brighter future but we’d heard all this before and wanted to feel fully confident that they would all come to fruition before we announced the news to you. We have seen it with our eyes!
    Your donations are currently funding extremely important extras, nay, necessities, which at the present time are sadly not available from our poor benighted NHS. So far, these have included modifications to Tim’s electronic wheelchair, postural aids, and specialised transport. Future plans for spending the donations involve new communication aids, adapted musical equipment, and (perhaps most importantly of all) modifications to Tim’s own home and recording studio, and the purchase of all the paraphernalia that will mean that he can return there to live full time. This has been a fondly-held dream, for so long now, which is at last on the cusp of becoming a fondly-held reality.

    With much love and heartfelt thanks from everyone on Team Tim.
