Cardiac Arrest logo

From 1977 to 1980, there was a band called Cardiac Arrest.

Based in Kingston, Surrey, they went through several changes through these short years, recorded a 7 inch single and a cassette album,
played several concerts on the pub and club circuit, mostly around the Kingston area.

After a while, they changed their name briefly to "The Obvious Identity", then "The Alphabet", before settling on
CARDIACS

but that's another story...

 

These pages are a sorry attempt to document at least a little of what happened here through pictures and some words.

Cardiac Arrest were playing with THE DIALS and THE WARDENS.

Does anyone know somebody with a copy, audio or video? No matter how bad the quality is, please contact me if you do.
