Post by Halifax Linda »

Just seen Tim Smith (Cardiacs) has died.
Though not my kind of thing I thought they were very clever and talented.
RIP.

Sad - I know he's been ill for a few years now. RIP

Could easily see their influence on Blur.

I remember watching a Cardiacs gig (or rehearsal or something) online in what looked like a basement years ago and it was brutal. The musicianship on it was crazy

Absolutely loved their ‘Tarred and Feathered’ single which I bought when it came out what seems like a lifetime ago. I thought it was a mind blowing piece of crazy art and the musicianship was incredible. Sadly I never went onto discover anymore of their music.
RIP.
