No-Man

no-man is a British duo formed in 1987 by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree). 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.

No-Man: Love You to Bits

Read "Love You to Bits" reviewed by Geno Thackara

Sometimes a new album is what happens when you're busy making other plans. Fittingly enough, plans for this duo have always been something of a joke anyway; No-Man's career has criss-crossed the whole spectrum of styles precisely because they've always been willing to follow unexpected ideas as the mood hits. It's also the reason the band ...

Well, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome continues to be a challenge, as it has been since mid-2014. 2019 represents, in fact, the worst year when it comes to the actual number of articles written. Still, I've been finding an increasingly satisfying niche in the arena of in-depth, detailed and extensive/exhaustive (exhausting, for you as much as I!!) articles. ...

For those who may have noticed, there have been no best of lists coming from yours truly since 2014; sadly, the chronic health problem that has reduced my previous writing pace to a crawl continues without much respite. My best of the year lists have always been predicated upon having reviewed the releases chosen, and with ...

Theo Travis: Open Air

Read "Open Air" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been a very busy decade for Theo Travis. The British reed/woodwind multi-instrumentalist has appeared, to varying degrees, on literally every album that Steven Wilson has released since turning to a solo career in 2009--from Insurgentes and 2011's Grace for Drowning (Kscope), through 2013's best-selling The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories), 2015's commercial ...

It's a somewhat hidden truth that a sizeable percentage of any musician's fan base believes that the music their favorite artists make is a direct reflection of their tastes. While an artist's music ought, indeed, be a reflection of what moves them, it's another truth that, more often than not, their listening habits run much farther ...
