“Home of fadeless splendour
Of flowers that bear no thorn
Here may the blind and hungry come
And light and food receive
Here mighty springs of consolation rise
To cheer the fainting mind
And re-creation find”

THIS tune is what got me into the Cardiacs 5 years ago. I remember picking Joseph up from school with it on the radio. It’s first group he really identified.
Cardiacs will forever hold a place in our house and our hearts. RIP Tim Smith. You legend.

Tim Smith of the Cardiacs has died. They were a strange and brilliant band and it’s a sad loss. I only saw them once, opening for the Wildhearts in 2004. Photo by Gareth @plaguera_official from that show. #rip #timsmith @cardiacs__

Cardiacs were one of the most criminally underrated bands of all time. Everything they did was so unique and brilliant. Tim Smith was a great songwriter and musician who deserved a much bigger audience. RIP Tim Smith.

RIP Tim Smith
This live version of “Is This The Life” by The Cardiacs at Salisbury Art Center back in1990 is euphoric, cacophonous, beautiful and layered with utter madness. It’s spectacular.

I am deeply saddened to read of the passing of Tim Smith from Cardiacs today. Even though Tim had been ill for many years, it’s still hard for me to think of him as gone, as his music made such a big impression on me, and continues to do so. pic.twitter.com/36a5MQBEYU

RIP Tim Smith, the most unsung musician of our time. Consider myself lucky to have even heard of him.
Makes me sad to think that sitting on a computer somewhere is an unfinished Cardiacs album that will probably never see the light of day. #TimSmith

RIP to Tim Smith, who really changed my life ♥️♥️ I almost only wore Cardiacs shirts for 10 years. Hearing his music was like realising there are infinite new colours. He was so genuinely kind too. My Mum telling me that “Tim Smith phoned” is in my happiest ever moments.

Don’t know much Cardiacs but this video is an absolute fucking fireball. Clever and technically inspiring while still managing to be organic and have character. RIP Tim Smith

Very sad to hear @cardiacsband Tim Smith is gone. I was listening to the Special Garage Concerts yesterday. Totally bonkers but exhilarating music RIP

RIP Tim Smith. Cardiacs were 1 of the very best bands I have ever seen live (even if I only ever caught them in mid-afternoon sets in tents at festivals).

RIP Tim Smith, front-man and mad musical genius of Cardiacs one of the most boldly unique bands to ever exist. My musical mind was never the same after hearing the middle section of “R.E.S.” for the first time.

Thank you @rhodri for this lovely tribute to Tim Smith of Cardiacs – as well as his kindness, humour and fervour, it gives a great sense of the small but hyper-energised community he created around him with his unique music.

Jo saw The Cardiacs at Blur’s Mile End Stadium gig. They brought an edge to an otherwise lighter BritPop lineup. RIP Tim Smith.

Tim Smith of Cardiacs, the band we have seen most often live, over the last 30 years, is most definitely the Leader of the Starry Skies. RIP

I’m not sure where else to put it, so I’m tweeting it: my little eulogy to Tim Smith of Cardiacs fame. RIP. I am who I am because of him. pic.twitter.com/NMvFDc2KNE

Oh damn. #RIP Tim Smith.
This jarring but wonderful Cardiacs’ song came out at the tail end of my college years and hearing it again brings back memories of a local university radio station that was the only source of “alternative” music in the area

Conheci Cardiacs recentemente por causa de uma versão do Napalm Death. Eles têm uma discografia extensa na qual não me aprofundei. É um grupo prog que abraçou o punk. Melhor do que Stranglers, é mais original. RIP. “Cardiacs singer Tim Smith dead at 59”.
— Daniel Souza Luz (@danielsouzaluz) July 23, 2020
RIP Tim Smith.
I love Cardiacs so much, I can’t remember ever hearing a band and thinking “fuck that’s basically what I’ve been trying to do”. High energy, theatrical freakouts just so smart and densely arranged. I’m so glad this music exists.
— Dan Briggs (@danbriggsx) July 23, 2020
Absolutely gutted to hear of the passing of Tim Smith. He wrote some of the most strange and beautiful music I’ve ever heard with Cardiacs. Too weird for most but if you got it you were a fan for life… like me. RIP Tim ❤️
