Cindytalk

Profile:
Formed 1982 in Edinburgh by Cindy Sharp and David Clancy from the remnants of Scottish punk band The Freeze (2). They've released work with Midnight Music, World Serpent, Praxis Records (as Bambule), Bluesanct and most recently on Editions Mego. They have also collaborated with such diverse people as Cocteau Twins, Kathy Acker, Alasdair Gray, Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks/Ministry), Somatic Responses and Toby Reynolds (Dj Scud/Wasteland.) Hard to categorize, they work within a fluid experimental framework and have, since their beginnings, incorporated sampling, musique concrète and electronics as mainstays alongside their more orthodox disintegrating rock structures. Cindy Sharp is the only consistent member of an ever-shifting line-up that still plays live and releases regularly.

Violently creepy and emotionally intense, Cindytalk can singlehandedly be described as the xenomorph of post punk. Yes, many came and went, many tried similar ideas before and after science - but many just as failed, falling prey to the temptations of commercial compromise and exposure to wider audiences. The closest it got "commercial" for Gordon Sharp, Cindytalk's transgender warrior constant - was through Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil channels. But despite Gordon's deceptively angelic delivery via "Dear Heart", "Kangaroo", "Fond Affections" or "A Single Wish", these still don't sound like a commercial compromise, more like adjusted to her remarkable shadow presence in the mix. In Cindy's case, the more reclusive the more abrasive. The rumour has it, Gordon was once asked even by Duran Duran to join them as their lead chanteuse... Talk about the idea as unimaginable as Liz Fraser joining Bananarama. Someone once bravely presented it simply as "Toby" - pretty harmless a name to give to someone as confrontational. Because, once you expose yourself to it, expect to be consumed by it. Because Cindy is hungry. Mercilessly hungry. And to great effect. Music to play in the dark. Or perhaps yes.
