Napalm Death: Cardiacs-Cover „To Go Off And Things“ für den guten Zweck

napalm death

Anlässlich der Erkrankung des Cardiacs-Frontmanns Tim Smith veröffentlichten Napalm Death eine Coverversion von „To Go Off And Things“. Der Song erscheint exklusiv auf der Bandcamp-Seite der Grindcore-Urgesteine. Gegen eine Gebühr von mindestens 1 £ (ca. 1,20 Euro) könnt ihr den Titel herunterladen. Wer mehr spenden möchte, hat die Möglichkeit dazu.

Bassist Shane Embury kommentiert die außergewöhnliche Veröffentlichung folgerndermaßen:

„Since I was blessed with being introduced to CARDIACS way back in 1986 they have been one of my favorite bands of all time! Getting to meet and become friends with Tim Smith, the musical genius behind it all, over the years was an added bonus. Tim always struck me as a person with a massive heart, who had a very pure and innocent view of the world in which we live in – something i totally related to, as the world can be a dark place – he radiated happiness. We shared many fun and elaborate conversations after CARDIACS shows in the early 90’s and I loved every minute of every conversation with him. I could go on and on for hours about how amazing his music is and the immense influence it has had on my life but suffice to say this cover of „To Go Off And Things“ that we have recorded is in tribute to the brilliance that is Tim Smith – it is the least we can do for a man who has given us so much.

Tim has unfortunately been severely unwell for a few years now and we hope with this recording made available to everyone for download on our bandcamp site for only £1 (you can pay more if your heart so desires!) we can help raise some money to go towards Tim’s rehabilitation! We hope you like our version of the song and find it in your heart to donate something towards such a worthy cause…Thanks for taking the time to read this.”
