#musicmonday – Cardiacs (various tracks)

Lucy Cage’s superb review of the new William D Drake album was such that it inspired veteran Cardiacs-hater Everett True to give them another listen. It certainly inspired me to spend some time listening to Cardiacs this afternoon, and picking just one song isn’t merely impossible, it’s plain wrong!

It’s so easy to find people who say “I don’t like Cardiacs”, but after over 30 years of making music, that’s a lot like saying “I don’t like David Bowie”. Sure, there’s certain recogniseable common elements that you can associate with “the Cardiacs sound”, but their music is so varied that even if you think you hate them, you’ll love at least one of these.

Goodbye Grace – pure punk energy

.

Is This The Life? – epic 80s gothic rock (in the best possible way)

.

Manhoo – Beatles meets Blur

.

Baby Heart Dirt – for the musically adventurous

.

Wireless – for the terribly serious
