Ha, we've got ours on the downstairs banister - I've just ordered the ABC bag for upstairs and have lofty plans to alternate them. It's the interior designer in me.

Slow Motion Blackbird

I heard this on Stuart Maconie’s Freakzone on 6Music last weekend and can’t stop thinking about it – the song of a blackbird repeated over and over and gradually slowed down… It’s really struck a chord with me – I just find it really moving and evocative. It’s repetitive but really worth sticking wi...

Re: What era did you get into Cardiacs?

Around May, 1988 when Gary Davies was playing Is This The Life on his lunchtime show as single of the week. I have this man to thank/blame:

Re: Dutch Uncles

Attendance of a live Dutch Uncles performance should be a basic requirement of all Cardiacs fans. They're pretty special.

Re: Mr Corbin's Bumming Shed, Salisbury, 24 August 2013

Beautifully put, Wilson :D Two things that seem to come out of all reports both here and on Facebook - 1. Can we do it again please? 2. The Garage Rehearsals are perfect - let's ave em! I love that none of us can actually remember what songs were played - all I can really remember is Jim with his le...

That sentence alone is enough to lift even the saddest of spirits, but if you could pop the vacuum cleaner round too, that would be smashing.

Re: Mr Corbin's Bumming Shed, Salisbury, 24 August 2013

Also meant to say, Sarah's artwork looked wonderful - I'm the proud owner of a signed, numbered 'Chinese Lanterns' print. She kindly told us that IKEA do good, cheap frames and told us the dimensions but I think it's deserving of something a little better :D It was really nice to chat with Sarah and...

Re: Mr Corbin's Bumming Shed, Salisbury, 24 August 2013

Perfectly put as ever Mr Dogs. So great to see you, Mrs Dogs, Abnego and everyone else - seeing you all again really made my day actually. I ultimately lost my battle with the cider so I hope my degeneration into a gibbering wreck wasn't too awkward :oops: Great to bump into Belch, Ady, ect in Wethe...

Re: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT

Apologies for being wet behind the ears on this, but i'm not so up on these things. What are the differences between the CD and LP mix for Heaven Born...? AFAIK, the LP mix should be identical to the original Rough Trade CD mix. Only one set of vinyl was pressed and that was for Rough Trade. If Bro...

Re: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT

Is the 'A Little Man and a House...' cover different in that it has the title written in the flower head, like the vinyl version? I don't think my CD from the '95 run has that. Great news that Tim is seeing someone that specialises in working with musicians - it's a very short news piece though - I ...

Oh. I've been looking forward to hearing that for ages! Seems odd that they'd go to that effort for it only to be heard by so few people - hopefully it'll be releases as a download at some point...

Re: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT

25th anniversary of ALMATWWW!?! I've been obsessing over this rabble for a quarter of a century. Terrifying. I already have everything but feel compelled to buy it all again in different formats. Also going to stock up on tshirts as I'm still living in my Garage shirt which plainly states 2003 on it...
