who split to become Levitation, fronted by the former lead guitarist of:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp4abwz7CoE
Christian "Bic" Hayes (former bike messenger and all round good chap) left the Cardiacs and joined Levitation - So there is still a link- but Cardiacs continued- even doing a joint headline tour with Levitation in 94 or so, which was the only tour by any band that I followed by bike.... And Tim Smith produced their first proper album.
Their second album "Meanwhile Gardens" was going to be released i 2 parts "Spring" and "autumn" and has yet to surface in its intended version. Join the facebook campaign here:https://www.facebook.com/groups/13704804676/
Bic went on to play with Julianne Regan in Mice, as tour guitarist with Heather Nova and the Pet Shop Boys and is now managing other bands and releasing some rather good stuff under the moniker "Microcosmos".
And the House of Love recorded a song called "Christine", as didhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSSlxp0FAS8
Bloody hell, that's a tough act to follow. I'll just take the first key word that made me think of a song. Nova was in there somewhere.
The Pixies did a live album called supernova. On that album was Gigantic.
Feel free to join in with the birth of Grunge. Quiet and loud.
