We are honoured to have our version of Cardiacs hymn-like anthem ‘Home of Fadeless Splendour’ included on this album. All proceeds so far have done wonderful things for Tim – regular complimentary treatment and the purchase of a car which will mean he can leave the hospital for trips out more frequently and with ease.'scaramanga six';

Apparently the first run of cd's has sold out!

Not all gloomy news then.

Cheers Arf

Cheers back atcha!

Wow ... that is just fantastic news all the way around. Thanks so much for sharing that, Arf.

I am really glad about this, i woke up this morning all messed up after having recurring nightmares about Tim playing a grand piano!
Was a bit freaked out! :?

That is really bloody amazing. To see that this record has actually achieved something tangible and big, and not just a couple of extra physio sessions or something.

Now, what could they buy him with the Volume 2 proceeds? :D

Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

Wizards of Twiddly tweeted this earlier today:
"Tim Smith fundraiser in London - Sat 11th June - Wizards of Twiddly, Knifeworld, Max Tundra - venue to be confirmed"
Sounds awesome, not sure I can get down to the Big Smoke for it though. :(
