RIP Tim Smith

2020-07-22 by cloakanddagger | 21 Comments
Tim Smith, lead singer of the English punk band Cardiacs, has died at the age of 59.
He took a step back from music after suffering from a heart attack back in 2008 which left him with Dystonia due to hypoxic brain damage related to the heart attack, although no further information regarding Tim's passing is currently available.

The Cardiacs gained a strong cult following during their career, as well as influencing a wide variety of artists and bands. They were working on a new album during the time Tim had his heart attack, but shelved it following his hospitalization.

Cardiacs was a band that any musician worth their salt knew about and appreciated. Fuck the NME, they screwed them so hard in the 80s and 90s.

Saw Cardiacs in ‘95 and was absolutely astounded but not in a good way. I later was astounded for all the right reasons.
The stuff in the shed on YouTube is as real deal as it gets.
A sad loss
RIP.
