:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

That's a good prospect for me then, I occasionally put Cardiacs on in the prescence of my 3(!) year old daughter :lol: . And you know what? Yesterday she asked me: "Daddy, Can I hear Cardiacs?" So a minute later we were dancing to R.E.S. She LOVES it. Oh, I'm such a great dad :)

Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder!

Both double albums, both have managed to get played over and over (without me eventually wanting to poke my ears shut) since I discovered em.

Whippersnapper- you're daughter's gonna be bonkers. Sounds like she already is, in the loveliest way. Will you adopt me?

I was introduced by Mrs D, i hold her totally responsible. All i really remember is being sat down and against my will being forced to watch maresnest, i was only a young boy-thing at the time! tis child cruelty in anyones books!
After this, the songs started seeping into my brain as i was exposed to them in small lumpy chunks over a long period of time. The CD that really got me though was sampler, that little bastard was lodged in my brain for a good while i can tell you that much, AND THE BLIGTER DIDN'T EVEN PAY HIS RENT FOR THE DURATION OF HIS STAY!

i'm still bloody livid that i have been turned into some sort of social outcast by the derranged musical tastes i was unwillingly and forcibly given by my parents!

YOU BASTARDS!

My first introduction to Cardiacs was something I read rather than heard. I can't recall what it was exactly - after all, this happened over 10 years ago - probably something short and sweet that compared them to some other groups. Anyhow, as this list of artists read more like a definition of musical surrealism (in the vein of "a meeting of a train and an umbrella on an operating table") than a sensible review of a rock group, my first thought was "I've got to hear this!"

There was no Cardiacs available in my local music shops, but I managed to find 3 titles elsewhere in Finland (A Little Man..., Songs for Ships and Irons & Heaven Born and Ever Bright) and was hooked immediately. There and then I ordered all the other albums available on CD, including Sing to God which was brand new at the time. I pretty much thought I knew what to expect of the rest of Cardiacs catalogue after immersing myself in my first three purchases. Of course, nothing could have prepared me for the fadeless splendour of Sing to God, which quickly became one of my biggest album favourites - and the reason why I must answer the perennial question about "the best album ever" with the three-word phrase "I don't know".

...its a really nice collection of mostly quieter, more meditative songs by, as the title says, Cardiacs and their friends...I think it flows well as an album, and its a good way to pick up on stuff by Spratley's Japs, Bill Drake, Mark Cawthra, Christian Hayes and so on...

...its always dirt cheap on ebay, i'd say get yourself a copy, you most likely won't be disappointed... :D

Yes. Definitely worth getting for the excellent tracks you can't find anywhere else by Lake Of Puppies, Mark Cawthra, Christian Hayes, Jon Poole and Catherine In A Cupboard

There's been a copy of Affectionate Friends in my local HMV for most of last year. It got knocked down to a tenner, and still no-one seemed to want to touch it. Then this week, I went in and it was gone. Someone had finally bought it! My heart swelled with joy.

I just hope they didn't bring it back in disgust the following day.
