The name no-man was adopted in 1990 and first used on the self-released June 1990 single release, Colours.
Originally creating a sample-based proto-trip hop / ambient styled music, no-man’s sound has become more organic, eclectic and band-oriented in subsequent years.
On labels such as One Little Indian, Sony, Adasam and Kscope, 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.
no-man's most recent studio album, Schoolyard Ghosts, was released in May 2008 and received some of the most favourable reviews of the band's career (being described as "truly sublime" by Classic Rock magazine).
Mixtaped - a double DVD package including a film of the band's sell-out London performance in 2008, a career profiling documentary and assorted promotional videos - was released in October 2009.
