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.

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 always considered it to be their weakest. LOL

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.

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.

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.....

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!

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
