BECOMING///ANIMAL is the amazing collaborative band/duo of Massimo Pupillo of Zu, and Gordon Sharp of Cindytalk and This Mortal Coil.

A Scottish singer and experimental composer, his first release with The Freeze “In Colour” came out on an independent scottish label in 1979. Three John Peel sessions followed, and the band subsequently changed its name into “Cindytalk” , which became the medium for Gordon ( now also known as Cinder) solo output . As Cindytalk, he has performed all over the world .
His most recent album “The Labyrinth Of The Straight Line” has been released on Editions Mego december 2016.
