Where have you seen a Cardiacs t-shirt?

I thought it was time to revive this thread, one of the victims of the Great Thread Masscacre of 2012 :roll:

(I didn't think it necessary to do this after the Bull and Gate shindig because, well, pretty much everyone there was in a Cardiacs t-shirt, so it kind of wasn't surprising :wink: )

Where? Rock City, Nottingham, on Saturday night. Providing the evenings jollifications were the Eureka Machines and the Wildhearts, both bands with Cardiacs connections. I was stood at the top of the stairs into the main hall (in a LMAAH t-shirt), rolling myself a ciggy, when someone passes by and says something like "hey, cool t-shirt there mate!". The chap himself was in in LMAAH/ABC logo shirt, hurrah! ::D

Handshakes and introductions were made with Chris (who from his facebook cover picture appears to be a Porcupine Tree fan so double bonus points there mate :D )

Oh, and that Jon Poole was there too, playing bass and stuff 8)

cheers

edit : Ooooooohhh I'm all (No) gold now :razz: :D

is this a chance for me to wheel out my "chatting to Steven Wilson about Cardiacs" story again? :)

my mate bumped into a drummer in his samba wanderings in Brum recently who was sporting a natty big flower shirt. That anyone on here?

Does samba drumming and cardiacs liking actually work as a thing?

I was wandering through the O2 Academy in Birmingham last night, LMAAH t-shirt adorning my grubby torso, aiming for the bar whilst waiting for The Specials to come on stage, when the guy running the merchandise stand calls me over with a "Hey - is that a Cardiacs t-shirt? Fantastic band!"

We had a good old chat and I brought him up to date with the latest developments in the world of Cardiacs. Turns out he sort of knows Sarah a bit as well :D

Could've talked for longer but he had a job to do, a queue was building up and his co-worker was sending some "get-back-to-work" looks ::roll:

cheers

Does anyone know Adam?

You have to sit through two minutes of ads at the start, and Adam's t-shirt only makes the briefest appearance at 03:10, and then more adverts to make it to 40:05 to see more proudly displayed loyalty, plus his brilliant finished bus. I shall look out for it. Comin' down yur with their awful musical tastes.

And we know that Kavus requites the love!

He called the Nothingface / Dimension Hatross era closer to Stravinsky than rock 'n' roll.

Get Target: Earth, the new album. You won't regret it. It's a mix of styles from right across their musical template.

Two Cardiacs T-shirts seen at the Secret Chiefs 3 gig in Elephant & Castle yesterday. Given the size of the venue, I can only surmise that Cardiacs fans are rapidly interbreeding and taking over the world.

And a Guapo T-shirt.

I was at the Levellers' festy last month and the Sunday fancy dress theme was "black and white" which made shirt selection easy enough. I wore my long sleeved daisy which proved too warm underneath my black satin shirt so I tied it around my waist with the daisy hanging down the back instead. Later I spotted a likely cove also wearing a daisy so I pointed and smiled at him, turned my back, bent over and wiggled my shapely behind at him. He looked nonplussed. That's how I realised my arse-flower was in fact obscured by the tails of my satin shirt.

I saw a Cardiacs t-shirt on, of all things, BBC 4's Metal Britannia the other day. Right at the end there was a shot of some kid sitting on his bed wearing said item.

Sorry, that's not very interesting really.

Hey, I'm sure it would make Dr T. feel all warm inside, for one ::D

It's always good to see fans of different genres show some Cardiacs love. It's not all progheads (or avant prog freakazoids like Yours Truly), unreconstructed punx, post punk art rockers, Zappa fanatics, alt-rockers looking for a truly genuine alternative, psychedelic tripsters or any other genre or subgenre fan who are exclusively drawn to Cardiacs. Bring on the headbangerz!

Wasn't that 'kid' Shane Embury of Napalm Death? The BBC like to recycle that footage wherever possible. I didn't actually watch it, but I remember seeing it on the BBC a long time ago. Napalm Death are famous for championing anything Cardiacs.
