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

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.)

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.

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).

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.

well its obviously Cardiacs for me.....yep i'm one of the hardcore fans who discovered them by mistake when i was 15.....then went on too see them 22 times......fortunatly i've met the guys from cardiacs ......when i met Tim i was so nervous.....considering for several years before i used to help out with bands that played in a music store i used to work in back in the early nineties...some of which i admired at the time and never have been starstruck since.....even when i met Robert Plant i wasnt starstuck.......but i do have alot of resepct for Primus.

Sailing the Sea of Cheese was the first album I ever brought, and while my tastes have changed over the years I still like Primus.

I have only ever taken a vague interest in the Cardiacs. Tired listening through Sing to God a couple of months ago and aborted halfway through.  
If there is one question I dread, to which i have never been able to invent a satisfactory reply, it is the question what am I doing.

Primus was among my first favourite bands, and still is.

Not a huge fan of either band, but they're both good.

Since you said Funk/Metal along with everything, I have to vote for Primus, because Cardiacs weren't a funk/metal/other things hybrid...and Primus weren't really punk in any way, so I have to vote for Cardiscs...but since I love both, I'll just go ahead and vote both. Wink
