Piffol....

Postby johnny doom » Tue Oct 02, 2007 11:42

Is it just me.....or does anyone else absolutely love the Piffol tracks on Archive?

I fvcking love those tracks....

Instrumentals, tight, great playing, proggy, zappaish, spacey....just excellent.

I also got the PIffol 1 track, by finding it on Soulseek....which was missing from Archive....the squelchy keyboard in that is ace!....

I wish (and its only a wish)...that someone (Organ or someone)...would release all the Piffol tracks on one little release....cleaned up, remastered....

Does anyone else feel the same?

I think I recall seeing a couple of the hardcore here saying additional Piffol was once recorded and available on tapes or summat. Perhaps they'll be along soon for you. Just sit there salivating and pressing F5. I said salivating!

Don't forget this piece of Piffol (six times, we eventually learned)

I don't think I've heard "..One Time"-?

shit! i forgot about this one....

yeah i have this too.

again....brilliant.

i sometimes want cardiacs to musically split into two.....like a worm.

i want one half of them to make more rocky prog....like this....with lots of tim soloing...and spacey keyboards...love it..

then the other cardiacs make the lovely songs of tim....with his psychedelic beatles leanings....and genius lyrics and melodies....

sorry, i'll stop now.

p.s. please release piffol 1 to 6 on CD someone.

The Piffols are good. I have definitely not heard SIX of them though!

I was thinking this morning that I'd love to hear a completely instrumental Cardiacs album - not that I don't love the lyrics/vocal but the instrumental of Insect Hoofs On Lassie is utterly vutterly spectaculart.

I love the Piffols! I had no idea until recently that there were six. If someone can upload them somewhere, my gratefulness would be eternal!
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!

No you can't, they're bad for you!

I'm curious, does anyone know what the word Piffol means?

Btw; was there ever a Piffol two times?

I have a theory that the track called T.V.T.V. may've been the "lost" Piffol. It' was evidently recorded during the same sessions as the others, and if you put them all together it makes a nice little mini album.

It's very different though, isn't it? The (other?) Piffols seem to be all based on two or three themes that I can't say I've heard in T.V.T.V. Not that I've actually sat down and looked for them...

Hmm, I have to disagree there. It seems to my ears that only One and Five have an actual recurring theme. And Six doesn't really sound like any of the others.

Anyway, I've put them all together(including Five & Six) in a zip, with a little bit of speed/volume tweaking:
