Re: No, but seriously, where the fugg is everyone.

I met Stewart Lee recently and asked him if him if he likes Cardiacs. He said: "I saw them a couple of times in the 80s... but....I never really... No."

Didn't stop me telling him all about them though.

Re: What did you listen to today ?

Listening to Mogwai right now. Never troubled myself with them before but I'm enjoying the new album. I used to really like Mogwai, but i'm now of the impression that if you've heard a couple of their albums you've heard it all. Is the new one anything special? I'm enjoying it but I honestly have n...

Re:

There's a Cardiacsy spirit to it which has completely gone from the Nest, sadly. I've got a wet and wincey eye this morning, if that's any good. :( The loss of The Seaside in the transition, as has been mentioned, was a tragedy that can't be quantified now, but i've a nagging feeling that it was wh...

There's a Cardiacs-related one here but, Mr Dogs' response aside, I may as well have just farted out of the window: http://www.cardiacs.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=3737

Re: No, but seriously, where the fugg is everyone.

bounce I don't think this place has bounced since about 2008. It's not really about Cardiacs any more though, is it... I like the FB group well enough (it's pretty much an extension of the old Chatlist) but I don't like how quickly a subject gets lost only to be brought up again by someone else a w...

This looks interesting - spotted by someone on Cardiacs Facebook group: http://cutsmusic.co.uk/#/cuts-02/

It's an audio/visual project by Christian Hayes and Jo Sprately - apparently they're going to be supporting fvck Buttons in Bristol.

Re: What did you listen to today ?

Heard this on 6music the other night and can't stop playing it. Beauticious cover of one of my favourite songs. The Unthanks-Starless Was that on Stuart Maconie's Freaks Zone? We heard that too and it stopped us in our tracks - wonderful. I saw Rachel Unthank and the Winterset a few years ago - the...

Re: Your Most Embarrassing "Favorite" Band, Album or Phase

Also - isn't Nik Kershaw awesome? I'm yet to investigate Radio Musicola onwards, but I'm sure there are plenty of gems to be discovered within... As for the first two albums - well, he's a greeeeaaaaaat tunesmith, eh. I haven't listened to Radio Musicola for 20+ years but I always liked it - especi...

Re: Your Most Embarrassing "Favorite" Band, Album or Phase

I have a genuine love of the Bee Gees - they churned out some great, great pop music. I even like the later stuff - this is great! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hW2tGPvsR2E (Does he really sing "Going down without following through"??) I also enjoy a bit of cheesy 70s disco and am not ave...

Re: Your Most Important Taste-Shaping Album

Me and a childhood friend as 12 year olds were really into the electronic pop/chart music of the time (c.'83-4) like Howard Jones, Nik Kershaw, Depeche Mode, etc. I was at his house one day when 'What Difference Does It Make' by the Smiths came on the radio and from first few seconds of the guitar i...

Re:

my (comparatively pop) list No kidding, I'd like to know where Rumours is in all this. :) :D I did have a parallel list that was considerably 'cooler' (at least, it didn't have any Willie Nelson in it) but I could never have carried it off. I know this is another, well covered topic, but I've alway...
