Why is the 25th Anniversary Edition of ALMAAHATWWW special? Did the original not come with a 12 page booklet? I ask because I've got that Torso version with the extra goodies on it.

Oh, and is the Greatest Hits CD worth buying for the extra track? Hmm...


Yes, my version of ALMAAHATWWW (bought in 2006, so probably ABC) comes with no booklet at all, only front and back cover, no lyrics, no photos.

Greatest Hits it's worthwhile for the extra track and has a nice 12 page booklet.
anything anyplace anywhere for no reason at all

I wonder if Little Man is a 'proper' CD press, rather than the CD-Rs they had done in '06.

I also wonder if Sing to God & Guns are that stock. I suspect so. OceanLandWorld was the same, professionally pressed CD-R. I can't remember if there were any more...

Looking at the back cover to Sing to God, looks like Bellyeye is gonna be Believe again..

I'm really strongly considering picking up Little Man and a House again even though I already have it. And maybe some vinyl, even though I currently lack a record player. And a t-shirt!

picked up everything on CD that I didn't already have, but passed on most all of the vinyl since I had it all (except the Susannah 7" and Is This The Life 7"), and the a shirt. Cost a pretty penny but I didn't even think twice. CARDIACS stuff is pretty much one of the only bands who drive me to buy same albums in different formats. Absolutely thrilled to send Tim and co. my money.

I wish someone would make some baby "onesies" as I plan on educating my daughter about music via CARDIACS when she's born in October!! Can't start early enough, right?

This makes me think they are using the old duplicated stock still.
I wonder if the Little Man CDs are totally new, or the old stock with a new booklet and sticker?

The vinyl looks to be old stock, though I've heard whisperings of new pressings to come.

My order in post too! I ordered a bunch of CDs as I have been making do with iTunes so far. Hope they are 'proper' CDs mind, after reading a few comments seems like they might not be? No Special Garage Concerts (personal favourite) but hoping they appear soon! :-)

Batesy wrote: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 wonder if there's something missing from that?


Yeah, that news story does seem to stop quite abruptly. Strange. But it's really nice to have a snippet of news.

Not bought anything yet, but will do when I get the chance.

Who is Mary? She seems nice. Maybe we should tell her what else we would like for sale so they know what there is demand for, cos she said they would be adding more stuff in future. What do you think? Ships & Irons on CD would be good (it was the first Cardiacs I heard and all I had for about seven years, would like a proper copy though). Spratleys and the Hazel single too, oh and yes, Oceanlandworld...

pipedream: remastering/remixing/layout overhaul of Toy World + The Obvious Identity in those tasty little mini-LP CDs.

realistic: Sing To God on vinyl, Guns on vinyl, Ditzy Scene repress on CD/12", Cardiacs hoody

I think ALMAAHATWWW on picture disc would be good. That flower is just asking for it!
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!

I love the idea of a Ditzy Scene ep, on vinyl!

I think the Complete Cardiac Arrest would be great on CD. It could house the original demo, the A Bus... EP (but include Keep Your Your Dead Mice With You), the The Obvious Identity album and any other bits and bobs that may be lying around Tim's attic / cellar. It would be lovingly remastered as well.
