yeah, you asked.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xX2rUUcs0G4 - not strictly cardiacs but very much in their debt
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3uoARaBrMk - former cardiacs member makes perfect song
If that's not enough, these... (etc)
do you like this?
i feel we might have done this before..
Kavus obviously appears in a couple of the above videos I linked. There's a whole delirious rabbit-hole of Cardiacs-related/inspired projects, which I've tentatively hinted at...
That's all I've got.

all the money goes to a good cause - the rehabilitation of The Greatest Man Alive (it's a long, sad story)
Sing To God is probably the best album ever made by anyone.
THAT SAID, if you'd rather spend £12 than £24, you stingy bastard, the other albums there are universally brilliant. My personal recommendation would be The Seaside, which drips with uncontainable beauty and youthful fire, and is often overlooked.
Don't know if I've mentioned this but Cardiacs are the best band on the planet, ever, full stop, period. Just buy it ALL.
I've only got the cardiacs sampler, but find it way too trebly. Which is weird, because when I saw them live they had the most incredible gut-wrenching bass.
will let you know how i get on
you surely don't mean 'a little man, a house and the whole world window' do you; the edit's too severe ;)
IMO, their weakest, most 'conventional', most watered-down record, but still amazing and lovely, so yeah, keen for your thoughts. Mostly about 'RES'. :D
i'm guessing 'most conventional' is a good place to start anyway, though obviously its not like im adverse to this kind of stuff.
it prepares you for the cerebral reprogramming that is to come. may even initiate it.
does it matter?
and no, it doesn't matter - I started with Sing To God - the deep end :D
All I ask is that you don't neglect the really early stuff (pre-Little Man) because most of it is truly incredible.
while bearing in mind that a single year separated the two albums' releases
you will do well to retain possession of your socks
On Land And In The Sea
Sing To God
Heaven Born And Ever Bright
You can discover Toy World, Songs For Ships And Irons, Pony, Sea Nymphs, OceanLandWorld etc etc etc later. So many treats
and it certainly didn't do me any harm. Can still remember the day I bought it along with Half Man Half Biscuit's 'Back In The DHSS'. Great days.
and both bands that just kept getting better as well. growing up alongside them, tracking their progress must have been such a joy
you've got me thinking as to how I discovered them in the first place. My best friend (to this day) had 'Big Ship' mini album thingy thinking about it and it must have been around then that time we saw them for the first time at Surrey Uni or maybe even The Clarendon in Hammersmith. Genuinely can't remember. HMHB I must have heard on John Peel, there was a bit of a buzz around them at the time too for pulling their live TV 'Tube' appearance in favour of watching Tranmere Rovers as the game was moved to a Friday evening.
