Fundraising campaign for Tim Smith…

Dear friends,

We would like to let you know about a fundraising campaign to help Tim Smith, of Cardiacs, with specialist healthcare costs. Nearly 10 years ago he suffered a cardiac arrest that left him unable to move or speak and a condition called dystonia, but his mind is as sharp as ever. Funding shortfalls and bureaucracy have seen his rehabilitation grind to a halt….

Even the smallest donation will help and please do share news of this campaign if you can.

As you may know William D Drake was a member of Cardiacs and in Sea Nymphs with Tim Smith. Tim also produced the ‘William D Drake’ album.

Pitter patter of Briny Hooves…

During Mr Drake’s annual inspection of the attics, he came upon the long missing box of Briny Hooves CD’s. These last remaining copies go on sale on Bandcamp today, and a small number available to buy at the next William D Drake concert on 26th November 2017
