With Cardiacs, it's hard to go wrong with "A Little Man and A House ... ". It's probably my favorite and an excellent starting point. "On Land" is great, too, but a *lot* heavier and the production isn't as good IMO. Most people will tell you that "Sing to God" is their masterpiece; it took me a long time to get into it, but now I'm a huge fan. Still, the production makes it very fatiguing to listen to for long periods of time.

Excellent!

Their first was quite impressive.

Sounds interestingly. I have to check their debut album. What do you think about Nullstellensatz?

I saw them a couple of years ago at RIO and they were really interesting, I haven't got round to picking anything up yet.

Could you give some recommendations for RIO/  Zeuhl? It is one of my favourite prog subgenres and I want to listen to more such a music. Via this thread I found e.g. Caillou and Atomic Ape and I really enjoy them. Below I wrote what I know from RIO:

Univers Zero - full discography
Art Zoyd -  all up to Berlin (chonologically)
Present - full
Etron Fuo Leloublan - Batelages
Henry Cow - full
Samla Mammas Manna - Maltid
Thinking Plague In Extremis
Uz Jsme Doma Uprostred Slov, Caves
Aranis Aranis
Miriodor Mekano
Atomic Ape Swarm
U Totem U Totem
Cardiacs  A Little Man and a House and the Whole World Window 

Please suggest something. I want a lot of RIO music! LOL

^ Have you tried Fred Frith solo?  I highly recommend "Gravity", "Speechless", and "Step Across the Border" from his solo career.  The latter is a film soundtrack about Frith, and acts as a nice sampler of several of his projects.  The first two are fully realized band albums, as good as anything Cow did.

Well if you like Atomic Ape you should really check out Secret Chiefs 3 who are outstanding

Also from the list you posted

Thinking Plague - Decline & Fall and History Of Madness then work backwards
Miriodor - Avanti!, Cobra Fakir then work backwards
Zamla Mammaz Manna - Familjesprickor
Cardiacs - Sing To God & On Land And In The Sea

You don't list any Magma, you can't really do Zeuhl without Magma, checkout Hhai (Live), Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh, Kohntarkosz

Also check out

Hamster Theater

As I wrote in the previous post, the list contains only RIO albums. Of course I know Magma (how couldn't I know them?! Ouch), Shub Niggurath (only Les Morts Vont Vite but I'll check the other albums), Eskaton (only 4 Visions), Weidorje etc. Some time ago I started listenning to Koenjihyakkei's Angherr Shissipa and it is OK. Thank you for the list, I believe I'll find there a lot of amazing stuff. From Guapo I know Five Suns and History of Visitation but I forgot to mention them.

HolyMoly, thanks for Fred Frith recommendation, Gravity sounds great! Thumbs Up

If you have Shub Niggurath - Les Morts Vont Vite youhave the best one, the only other one I like is Introduction but it does share one track "Yog Sototh". I'd avoid the others
