Cardiacs - Live
This stupendous live album, recorded live to stereo with no overdubs or sweetening, on May 15, 1988 during their most popular live period, features the famous/classic sextet lineup.
The Cardiacs are a great, long-lived UK outfit, founded in 1977, who combine punk energy with very odd cabaret leanings and a fondness for musical complexity that undoubtedly got them gobbed on even more than usual during the 'age of punk'. They didn't care; "wankers", they cried to the unbelievers!
"It was during the Cardiacs European tour of 1988 that The Alphabet Business Concern generously commissioned this recording of the gala performance at Amsterdam’s prestigious Paradiso. A very strange and worrying story is attached to the making of this album."
