ORGAN THING: In celebration of Tim Smith, the leader of the starry skies as well as Cardiacs, an Other Rock Show special replayed tonight on Resonance FM. Hear it here…

Tonight Marina Organ presents an hour of music that uses unconventional structures and ‘other’ time signatures – gathered from the worldwide undergrounds of math rock, avant prog, weird electronica and strange pop. This week: In Memory of Tim Smith. A memorial and celebration of the work of The Other Rock Show’s most influential and important creative, Tim Smith of Cardiacs. Tim died peacefully in July 2020 after a twelve-year battle with illness and disability that robbed him of movement and voice. Before his death, his legacy began to finally gain the recognition it deserved, including the granting of an honorary music degree from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. This show gathers together unheard material from 35 years of Cardiacs gigs and some of his greatest songs and compositions.

This show was first broadcast in September 2020. Two years already, a whole two years since the Leader of the Starry Sky departed, two years this week since Cardiacs main man Tim Smith left us. Tonight we mark the sad date with a special  broadcast on Resonance FM. The show goes out tonight (Sunday July 24th) at 9pm UK time, here over the airwaves here in London on 104.4FM , hear it all around the whole world via

Here’s the broadcast…
