Cindytalk's Gordon Sharp and Robert Hampson (Loop, Main) are two characters of legend circulating on the periphery of London (and beyond) underground music over the last 2+ decades. It may come as a surprise then, that this stunning split 10" is the first meeting of these two singular minds. "Five Mountains Of Fire" by Cindytalk is a cracking track taking their recent brittle electronic experiments and charging them with firecracker-like percussion to create a pleasantly disorienting soundscape. Flip it over, and Hampson delivers the practical polar opposite with "Antarctica Ends Here" -- an exceptionally beautiful piece utilizing piano and carefully-placed electronics so as not to break the ice -- a tribute to John Cale's "Antarctica Starts Here" (from Paris, 1919, 1973). Limited to 500 copies. Cindytalk is: Gordon Sharp (electronics), Paul Middleton (drums), Dan Knowler (guitar), Gary Jeff (percussion), and Sherrill Crosby (electronics).
