Re: Look what's new at the Consultant's Memorabilia Collecti

I have, I just mean it doesn't matter if any of these CDs have been re-pressed or if they're being hauled out of a dusty box in the attic - all that matters is that Tim's/Cardiacs' work is available to buy again.

Re: kitten pyramid

It's quirky and tempo-changey, like "the" Cardiacs, who we've never heard a note by but they seem like an appropriate comparison. I can't decide if it's great that they can make that comparison without having actually heard them, or depressing... Either way, they're right - they're "...

Re: Is This The Life

Brilliant - thank you :D

I'm sure this is new to me - it's certainly much better quality than my version of Toy World.

Re: Is This The Life

Ha, sorry, yes, I mean I wonder how it sounds on the 'Snoopies' LP. It's not something I've thought about trying to get hold of before.

EDIT - Just had a look on Discogs - doesn't look like something I'll be buying any time soon!

Re: Is This The Life

Ahh, yes, must be. I only have really poor quality version of that tape - wonder what it's like on the LP. Might have to keep an eye out for it...

Is This The Life

I know it's not necessarily representative of Cardiacs generally (what is?) but 'Is This The Life' is the first thing I heard by them as an awkward 16 year-old in 1988 and is still, for me, as an awkward 41 year old, the greatest song ever recorded by anyone ever...

Re: Guns

Thought I'd dig up my old Guns thread from a few years given the other one has gone to shit. Let's favour this thread to carry on talking about Guns/Cardiacs and the other thread to embarrass ourselves.

Thanks.

Re: New Stars In Battledress Album, "In Droplet Form"

Very exciting, especially after Richard Larcombe's set at the Bumming Shed last summer which was one of my musical highlights of the year.

With an Arch Garrison album due too, we're being spoiled.
