You want a band that complains about [[{{Suburbia}} Suburban Life]]? Come to Cardiacs. You want a band that combines ProgressiveRock and Punk. Come to Cardiacs. You want a band that preempted the Emo genre by about 10 years. Come to Cardiacs.

** During Gloomy News Colvin Mayers would often play a short part of Enter the Gladiators riff. Colvin appears to like Shout Outs since Rock Around the Clock (itself being a pun on the Bill Haley song) was often introduced as "Real Rock and Roll!"

The lineup went through a series of changes, but through all of it Tim and Jim Smith remained.
In 2008, Tim Smith had a [[AuthorExistenceFailure stroke]] and [[HarsherInHindsight cardiac arrest]], leaving the band without a frontman. He's still around, but may never recover.

Cardiacs are that perfect band you've been looking for all your life but couldn't find because they're so damn obscure. Frontman Tim Smith is pretty much the only songwriter of the band. However, older brother Jim Smith is as much of a key character as Tim, bassist, batter-head, bully-bait, he's been "there" since Tim was a baby. Then there's Sarah, Tim's sister, saxophonist, pre-Seaside synth player, skirt wearer supreme, she's been "there" too.

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome. Most of Cardiacs' early material (As Cardiac Arrest) was either not recorded or recorded poorly (and [[ItGotWorse to make matters worse]] only released once and in ''extremely'' limited quantities).
