This is a live album recorded over three nights at the Garage in London and released exclusively on to CD. At these concerts Cardiacs only played songs that predated 1984, some which had never been heard for many years.

Until the release of The Special Garage Concerts Vol II, none of the tracks on the 7-inch single had been reproduced anywhere else. The single was supposed to contain four tracks and not three, but the limited space on the 7-inch format prevented it. The fourth track was to be "Keep Your Dead Mice with You", which was later re-recorded as "Dead Mouse" on the Toy World album. The single is one of the rarest Cardiac Arrest/Cardiacs items. The album was produced by Cardiacs leader Tim Smith at Crow Studios in Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, UK. It was recorded with the punk/DIY ethic in mind as Smith had little cash to invest in the project. The master tapes were duplicated onto as many old cassette tapes as Smith could find.

Cardiacs ‎– Garage Concerts Vol I. Label: The Alphabet Business Concern ‎– ALPH CD030. For that coming October’s ‘Special Garage Concerts’, Cardiacs were expected to wipe the grime of the dusty archive from thirty-two tunes everyone had long since forgotten about. Cardiacs dutifully frittered away the waning days behind locked doors, exhuming songs from clanking, obsolete machinery and reams of faded manuscript. Music from the band’s conception in 1976 to their ‘coming of age’ in 1983 was given the dressing down THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN had always wisely insisted it deserved. With the arrival of autumn the songs had somehow taken on a raw, definitive bent.

Notes

Recorded live over 3 nights in October 2003 (17th-19th).

It is with great pride that THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN are pleased to present, for your listening pleasure, this glorious celebration of reworked or previously unrecorded songs from the murky past of our beloved wards, CARDIACS.
It was deemed appropriate, indeed, it was insisted upon that they secrete themselves, for the duration of the summer of 2003, in a nameless place of our choosing. There they remained until the requisite level of skill and dexterity had been accomplished to facilitate, to our satisfaction, the performance of these rare and beautiful lost masterpieces with a new verve and power previously unknown.
THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN dutifully provided from our fetid archive the faded manuscripts and dirty wax cylinders wisely removed from their youthful, clumsy grasp many years ago, returning them to their responsible unshaking adult hands, the hands of men blessed with the moral stature and fortitude we have come to expect.
It was from these tattered aids to memory that they were to recreate this cornucopia of delights and, as is becoming of our generosity, all our wisdom and guile was used to carefully cajole and encourage the course of this particularly leaky ship.
The consequence of this Behemoth of a project being steered safely into harbour was a Gala concert performance over three heady, sweaty, magnificent nights at London’s ‘intimate’ Garage venue in the autumn of 2003. We took it upon ourselves to commit these echoes of the past to recorded form, a decision not undertaken lightly, as many of these gems were never intended for electronic encryption into digital compact disc form. The results of this daring enterprise we generously bequeath to you, pathetic listener, you will hold history in your damp hands.
