Cindy had such a unique voice. Serious, commanding, sexy yet also capable of delicacy.

Her work with Soft Cell is legendary, but also check out her awesome single Shake It Right (produced by Cabaret Voltaire).

I have no idea what happened to her after that single, maybe she settled down and gave up music?

What a pity, if that's the case. She was unique, and very cool.

Often referred to as Soft Cell's dealer though, according to producer Mike Thorne, this was not the truth. Cindy Ecstacy was a New York club kid friend of Dave Ball and Marc Almond.

She introduced the pair to ecstacy in 1981, a drug that played a major part in the recording and sound of the remix album Non-Stop Ecstatic Dancing. She also contributed vocals to that albums' classic rework of Memorabilia :

"Everywhere I go you know I’d like you all to know
That I’m the one for having fun, just send the bad times on the run
To move around to the softest sound, ecstatic dancing all around
I’m on the town, I’ll give you hell, if you don’t put me in my cell.

I may be soft, I made the top, I like my cabaret non-stop,
It may be erotic, it may be ecstatic
With it down on your floor or in your attic.

You take it low or shut our eyes, and let our love materialise,
And I don’t mean love on a chocolate box, I mean the love that really rocks
I say call me the baby, the good time lady,
Just look at me and it’s easy to see why they call me Cindy Ecstasy.

Because I’ve got the eyes, the where's, the why's
to make your love thing really rise,
You don’t need your speed or your pair of wheels.
You’ve got the prize that will brighten your skies.

So look me up and I’ll tell no lies,
Coz I’m the lady with the hot surprise,
If you don’t believe me, ask Soft Cell, because I shook them up and I gave them hell.
So Call up Cindy Ecstasy if you’re looking for a memory..."
