No-Man is a British duo formed in 1987 by Tim Bowness and Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson.

The band has so far produced six studio albums and a number of singles/outtakes collections (most notably, 2006’s career retrospective, All the Blue Changes).

Originally a sample-based proto-// styled music, No-Man’s sound has become more organic, diverse and band-oriented in subsequent years. The band has been lauded “Conceivably the most important English group since The Smiths” by Melody Maker music newspaper.

The name No-Man was adopted in 1990 and first used on the self-released June 1990 single release, Colours (a cover of the 1960s Donovan song). The single achieved Melody Maker and Sounds (british music paper) “Singles of the Week” accolades and was re-released by Liverpool-based label Probe Plus in October, 1990.

Between 1991 and 1994, No-Man were managed by Talk Talk’s manager Keith Aspden. During this period, the band received highly positive UK music media support (including more “Singles of the Week” in Melody Maker, Sounds and Irish music paper, Hot Press), had 2 indie top 20 hits (Days In The Trees and Ocean Song), a Billboard Top 40 dance hit (the US only single, Taking It Like a Man) and had high profile contracts with One Little Indian, Hit & Run Publishing and Epic/Sony.

Subsequently, mirroring the evolution of artists such as Talk Talk, David Sylvian, Radiohead, Scott Walker and Kate Bush, with each successive release, the band has moved further away from its more conventional Pop/Rock roots.

    I like to think of them as the ones building on the legacy of Talk Talk & Mark Hollis, especially with Returning Jesus & Together We're Stranger.

    Tim's new album sounds interesting enough, hopefully he's able to tread his own path from here on out now rather than just wait for SW to come along.

    I wanted to make a poster/print out of Wild Opera reissue cover art, but I'm not succesful in finding the picture in high enough resolution. Would someone have a hi-res version of the pic ? [2]

    Official No-Man's twitter feed: "Tim has been in the studio with the no-man live band recording four pieces with a view to inclusion on a forthcoming no-man album." Can't wait. I really like their stuff.

    Everything from Returning Jesus on is pretty stellar, but I would have to cite Speak as my favorite. There's something so naked and vulnerable about it that sowed the seed for those later records more than the more pop/electronica stuff did.
