Biography

Formed by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson in the late 1980s, no-man’s first single, “Colours,” was released on UK independent label Probe Plus in 1990. Becoming Melody Maker, Sounds and Channel Four Music “single of the wee” and garnering Radio One airplay, “Colours” led to the band being managed by Talk Talk’s manager Keith Aspden and signed to One Little Indian in the UK and Epic/Sony in the US. The band were compared to artists as diverse as Massive Attack, Roxy Music and Prefab Sprout.

The band’s second album, Flowermouth (1994), was more expansive and experimental than anything that preceded it and more accurately reflected the band’s eclectic tastes (Robert Fripp, Jansen, Barbieri & Karn (from the legendary band, Japan) and Jazz legend Ian Carr guested).

Releasing four more progressively experimental studio albums between 1996 and 2008 (most notably on the Kscope label), no-man drew from a diverse mix of singer-songwriter, post rock, minimalist classical, progressive rock, jazz and contemporary ambient sources for inspiration, producing a distinctive yet difficult to categorize music.

Described by Drowned In Sound as “Probably the most underrated band of the last 25 years,” the band built up a dedicated audience which led to sold out performances in the UK, Germany, Poland and Holland on its 2012 tour (documented on the album Love And Endings).

Love You To Bits represents a return to the band’s Electronica and Dance roots that incorporates the creative advances and sophistication seen on the band’s later albums.

Tim Bowness’ recent quartet of solo releases – including 2019’s Flowers At The Scene – have entered the official UK Top 5 Rock, Progressive, and Vinyl charts. Steven Wilson’s most recent album, To The Bone, was his most successful to date, reaching No 3 in the UK Album Chart and the Top 20 in 15 countries.
