Healthcare crowdfunder for Tim Smith from Cardiacs/Sea Nymphs, following a brain injury.

Are there any Cardiacs/Sea Nymphs fans out there amongst Edwyn's fans? (There MUST be a crossover beyond just me!)

A healthcare crowdfunder has been set up to help founder Tim Smith recover from dystonia, which has left him out of action for a decade, his condition exacerbated by his local council's refusal to fund his treatment.

In 2008, on his way back from a gig at the Roundhouse, Tim suffered a full-blown cardiac arrest, which led to hypoxic brain damage of the neural pathways that control the starting and stopping of movement. This has left him with a little-known condition called 'dystonia', the upshot being that Tim has no power of speech nor much dexterity; he also suffers from spasms and constant body pain.

Further info on Tim's condition can be read here: https://www.cardiacs.net/tim-smith-health-2018/

The aim of the crowdfunder is to raise enough money to fund a year's-worth of the appropriate treatment Tim needs to help him regain control of his movements and to reduce his spasms, with a view to him being able to return to the house he has not lived in since the days before his illness occurred. With this achieved, Tim will be able to consider resuming work on the unfinished Cardiacs album the band were working on shortly before his illness. (The band performed a Marc Riley session just one day before this insult to his health: https://youtu.be/CvXoR0wL1hI )

The smallest of donations and any words of support would be most welcome!

With many thanks,

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.
