the more you listen to it, the more it just gets into your head and your soul


It really does, doesn't it! I can play music through headphones while I 'work' and I seem to be playing this about twice a day at the moment!

They never did any live shows, did they?

Actually - was anyone at the gig, I think it was at the Venue in New Cross, circa.1992, when Jim suddenly went of on a huge, long rant and started shouting? I don't think I've ever heard him speak before or since. I can't remember what he said but he got an enormous cheer for it! I'm certain this ha...

He's not just Jim, he's Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim, Jim (and so on. And on.)

A couple of weeks ago, I taught my 2 year old godson to punch the air and shout Jim repeatedly. Obviously, his parents were thrilled...

Spratleys Japs

Not strictly Cardiacs but I wasn't sure where to post it... I ranted about this album on the other site but feel the need to continue here! I think it's the best non-Cardiacs thing Tim has done. In fact, I might go out on a limb and say it's probably the best thing since Sing To God... (I haven't pl...

Hello Dapper Swindler - yeah, people seem to be coming back. I was going to change my user name but I'm not imaginative enough - my surname is Bates so, Batesy it is - cunning, eh!? :? ps: anything we can do about the board layout? it's a bit annoying constantly having to scroll right and left to re...

Liam Gallagher bought me a pint once - I was expecting him to be a complete git but he was quite nice actually. I'll say that about anyone who buys me a pint! I've been within kicking distance of the Queen and John Major. Rock n roll, eh? I used to work in the West End of London and saw loads of fam...

Themes

I can generally pick out lots of First World War references and the childlike images and language permeate throughout, but it is really difficult to know what Tim's singing about . He never dicusses the lyrics either which is kind of good but a wee bit frustrating too! Can anyone shed any light on a...

I was about 16 in 1988 and I heard Is This The Life on Gary Davies' lunchtime Radio 1 show - it was his single of the week and he played it every day. It was everything I loved about music at the time (noisy, sweeping giuitars and a bit gothy - well I was 16!). On hearing it, I rushed to my local re...

Woo hoo - gotcha!! :D :D :D Thanks AABC for directing me here - got a bit worried there. Mind you, I had a very productive day at work with no Cardiacs forum! Have people changed there user names? There are a few I don't recognise. I found the old forum at Cardiacs page of Wikipedia - has the link f...
