TO-YAY.

I'll be the fat lad in the Bang Face hoodie.  Nev probably knows a trick or two when it comes to avoiding me.

What a top night!  Even Tim Smith was there. He looked frail but seemed to be enjoying the night. Superb bands and Steve Davis was on good DJing form. That's a sentence I never thought I'd type.

Cheery lockdown pond scum swimming bravely against the tide.

Manna from heaven.
Manhoo, I didn't quite get. I'm assuming he's just getting a fright when Tim shakes the tree viciously for LOOOOOOOOOOOVE!

Literally cranking the tail of that rubber jawed spinney dog!
I like the sir doggy chicken ceaser bit!

Ooh, this has come out of nowhere.

Only ten minutes in but I think I was too hard on Kavus in the past. Looks like he added a lot to the more stripped back, punky, nettles in the wind sound of the garage concerts.

Like he says, he wasn't John Poole, and it took me a good while to forgive him for that. Unfair.

edit: 15 minutes in, he's boring me to death and I hate him again! :D

Dunno what you were expecting to be honest, Kavus has always seemed like a really down to earth geezer, I appreciate his honesty and the fact he doesn't feel the need to be "on" all the time. This was probably the most anyone's been allowed to peek "behind the curtain" where Cardiacs things are concerned and it's interesting to me from that point of view.

Also made me feel quite sad hearing of Tim's excitement when they were working on "L.S.D", and the missing Rotten Shed footage - I always felt like it was probably a bit of a compromise based on what they could salvage from the tapes and it seems that was the case.

I dunno, there's something about him that's always rubbed me up the wrong way.
He comes across as quite vain to me. I know he played up to that in cardiacs, but I think that's because it's his essence and they play up and exaggerate that when "in character". Don't rate his lyrics at all so it's a shame Tim seemed to give over the writing to him for an easy life.
I don't like the direction the band were going with the ditzy scene single, but yeah, I'd be excited to hear LSD come out with another singer. Who would it be though? Who could do it justice?
When he was saying Tim was getting the same shivers as he did when recording "on land". Wow! If it was really that good, I hope it sees the light of day in some form.

Just got off it. Loved the Vile countdown, having the chat pinned was a great idea. Hearing all the banter between songs was fantastic and seeing him that is Tim a rare treat. It should have made me sad but it was too joyful. Looking forward to tomorrow ☺️

Yep, I was there, in my kitchen, watching all the songs. I'm trying to work out why on earth I wasn't at the actual gig. Was it a secret sort of thingy?

Someone said that back in the day it was a badly kept secret on one of the comments that flew past last night. I'm assuming that these two shows were planned as warm-ups for the Garage shows - christ knows how complicated those songs were to learn.

Well that was good. Wasn't until it finished and I put the chat on that I saw Jim was in there getting all sorts of well deserved Laudation.

Loved all the Gong references - a spooky foretelling of Karvus's post Cardiacs career. And Fiery Gun Hand as the encoure was amazing!

The Garage Shows were in 2003, two years before!

Poor Kavus had to learn around thirty songs for those, for his first gig with the band.
