It is a massive album!

His work on albums like A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window is great, awesome band full of so many talented musicians past and present!   8)

Yes, incredible band, and Tim Smith is a genius.

This was my introduction to Cardiacs at a friend's house around 1989-ish:

When his wife said, "oh god, you're not going to play him that bloody Cardiacs video are you?" I knew I was in for something different. After the five minutes of insanity that is The Consultant's Flower Garden I was wondering what the hell I was watching. Then the songs started and it just got stranger and stranger. I wasn't sure what to make of it at first, but I knew there was something really interesting there, and I was soon going back for more. How bitterly ironic that they've probably been more popular since Tim was taken ill than they were when they were still a functioning band. :(

After some Scelsi, now some Sabbath:



War Pigs, Electric Funeral and Planet Caravan still have the power for me that they had when I was younger  :)

Actually, even parts of Iron Man have quite a strong effect, a bit of psychedelia in there too

The opening of Iron Man still sends chills up my spine.

The gentler, more pastoral side of Cardiacs, and no less strange than the main band. Beautiful stuff.
