I'll go with both.  I've only known The Cardiacs for a short while and am not familiar with their entire discography.  I was disappointed to find their catalog out of print.  Fiery Gun Hand was the first thing I heard and got my ear.

I'll have to go with Primus as well, simply because I've been into them for years.  I've only heard a couple of songs by the Cardiacs, and they definitely merit further exploration.  Trouble is, I haven't jumped on the iPod bandwagon, and their discs command Huge Dollars.....

BRUTAL.

Suggestion to those getting into Cardiacs for the first time: either start off with one of the single disc albums (for example, A Little Man...) or expect very possible long wait until you realize for sure whether you do or don't like Sing to God.  I started with it back in the day (early 2008 I think) and didn't really have any opinion on it for over a year...much of that time, I didn't listen to it, because I didn't think it was all that, plus it's long.  But once I did, I expanded my horizons in both directions and now have/enjoy almost everything they've recorded (alas, only as iTunes downloads).

Haven't heard anything from Primus, and I really enjoyed what I've heard from Cardiacs, so Cardiacs it is!

I've got the same problem man.  I will torture you with this.  Tongue



If you've like what you've heard and can't afford to buy out of print albums, you tube is a good way to go to explore the music.

On a side note can we steal your psychotic Frank Hill avvy for either my wife or myself on other sites? :)

Knock yerself out.  I didn't create it, but it is pretty choice.  (It's actually Hank Hill with Dr. Rockso makeup, doing propane instead of cocaine.)

without Primus (and Red Hot chili Peppers ), bands like Mr Bungle and Faith No More would be non-existenet

Actually Mr. Bungle's first tapes came out before Primus' first album, so they would possibly still be around. Wink
