The gathering - which shaped as Cardiac Arrest in 1977 with Smith as the guitarist and essential lyricist - immediately settled notoriety for their wild, whip-saw style, which collapsed in craftsmanship rock, jazz, psychedelia, metal, prog, and punk into an irritating melodic stew beat by Smith's anarchic vocals and difficult to-translate verses.
The gathering's crucial enhanced by their showy exhibition style, which frequently joined off-putting cosmetics, ensembles, video shows, and appearing in front of an audience showdown.
In a 2015 profile of Smith, an essayist for The Guardian proposed that the individuals who couldn't comprehend the gathering's methodology may consider it to be, "an appalling dungheap of particular guilty pleasure and constrained peculiarity," while those, similar to him, who got a kick out of the peculiarities love them, "with an intensity that causes Southern Baptists in the pains of love to appear uninterested loners."
Portraying their music, the essayist stated,
Cardiacs sound unhinged, the sound of a manic brain firing off jarring time changes and baffling words. Songs sometimes sound like the players involved are trying to catch each other out, only to suddenly blossom into rapturous, pristine melody. The band reject the most common tag attached to them, that of 'prog punk,' but there’s a certain truth in it, as they deliver jarring, wonky arrangements with trashy intensity. But then you have to throw in elements like nursery rhymes, sea shanties, sweet psychedelia, vast hymnal shout-alongs and the occasional, incongruously straightforward rock anthem.
