Cindytalk is the life long passion of Scottish singer/musician Gordon Sharp and a 40 year journey into the heart of noise-poetry. The work has often been a rigorous study in how a self-taught transgender outsider artist relates to the world we live in. How we go about negotiating the constant changes in our surroundings and further afield without fear or subservience to shifting trends and expectations.

Formed 1982 in Edinburgh from the remnants of Scottish post-punk band The Freeze, Cindytalk have released work with Midnight Music, World Serpent, Praxis Records (as Bambule), Handmade Birds, Lumberton Trading Co, Bluesanct and for the last 7 years have released through Editions Mego. Cindytalk have also worked in collaboration with such diverse people as This Mortal Coil, Kathy Acker, Alasdair Gray, Robert Hampson (Loop/Main), Chris Connelly (Revolting Cocks/Ministry), Somatic Responses, Toby Reynolds (Dj Scud/Wasteland) and more recently Massimo Pupillo (Zu) and with Ancient Methods in the collaborative techno project In The Mouth Of The Wolf (Diagonal Records). Hard to categorise, they work within a fluid experimental framework and have, since their beginnings, incorporated sampling, musique concrete and electronics as mainstays alongside their more orthodox disintegrating/improvised past-rock structures. Gordon Sharp is the only consistent member of an ever-changing line-up that shape-shifts into different units for live work; full band (six piece); trio; or Sharp, solo with voice and computer.
