Line-up / Musicians

Releases information

This CD (ALPHCD030) contains tracks from three special live performances in 2003 where the Cardiacs played only tracks originally written between 1976 and 1983, most of which hadn't been performed for years, some of which had never even been recorded for posterity. The CD can only be ordered from the band's website.

Thanks to Saskia for the addition
and to Rune2000 for the last updates

A must have for any collectors of antique cu ... (read more)

5 stars Wow! Wow! Wow! This is classic Cardiacs - and not only because all of these tracks are more than 20 years old. The boys rock harder than a punk band half their age while performing jaw dropping complex music with incredible ease. I'm a long time Cardiacs fan, I'm quite familiar with their anti ...
