two very exentric 80s expereimental rock bands, who blended ether punk or funk with prog, or anything else, who have a main man, brains, Tim Smiths or Les Claypools,

Primus for me: Les Claypool is one hell of a bass player; his band covers both The Residents and Rush...and besides: his favorite movies include Dr. Strangelove, A Face in the Crowd, and There Will Be Blood...

I guess I'm one of the biggest Primus fans around here, I think they never really released a bad album. Everything by the original lineup is extremely good, and I hope they will continue on releasing more albums as they just did after 12 years of silence. I'm pretty sure The Cardiacs are gonna win this though, having a bigger fan base around here.

Primus are by no means my favourite band, but they are miles better than The Cardiacs, whose merits have absolutely and completely escaped me.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

From the little bit I've heard of each, I'll take Cardiacs.

Primus by far. The Cardiacs, though I really do respect and appreciate them, can be a bit much for me in terms of their experimentation. I mean, it's pretty out there stuff - excellent, but I wouldn't listen to it on a casual basis. Little Man and Sing To God are Avant-Prog milestones though - love those albums. I've grown up on Primus - one of the most infamous bands of the 90's. The Brown Album is fantastic!

I love Les Claypool cause  is one hell of a bass player
I love Blind Justice, technical Thrash metal, a hidden gem
I really love "pork soda"
Larry Lalonde is a genious but...................

Cardiacs by far!!!, they influenced bands like Napalm Death, Steve Wilson, Wildhearts, Devin townsend, etc
Tim Smith is really a underrated genious-

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

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

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.

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.
