Singing to God: Tim Smith RIP

What a shit day. The genius that is Tim Smith, beloved frontman of Cardiacs, passed away in his sleep through the night. He is already sadly missed, despite his chronic illnesses meaning he hasn't made music for more than 10 years. At least we knew he was still here.

I'd like to point you towards my Tim Smith series from a few years back, even if you already know and love his work as much as I do. I'll be adding YouTube clips to the posts over the next day or so you can hear the great man's voice again. In the meantime though, here's a couple of songs to tide you over.

Rest easy Tim. Sing to God, and make sure she grants you your every wish.

(Today's Welsh Wednesday post has been replaced and will appear next week instead...)


  1. The Cardiacs made some absolutely terrific albums, and it's a pity he did not/could not do much the last ten years.

  2. Tim Smith has left an outstanding body of work and will be much missed.
