Mixtaped, the 2 disc DVD set from No-Man, is now available from the Kscope store. Comprising the band’s sell-out performance at London’s Bush Hall in 2008, a comprehensive career-spanning documentary, and numerous extras (including newly commissioned and archive video footage), Mixtaped provides a fascinating insight into one of British music’s most unusual cult heroes.
Formed in 1987 by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson, No-Man has produced a unique body of work that has developed from the band’s proto Trip-Hop / Ambient origins into something beyond easy categorisation.
The documentary, Returning, reveals for the first time the band’s full history from their roots in a teenager’s bedroom to an unsuccessful career in mainstream Pop; from near obscurity to increasing cult success.
Here is a trailer for the 2DVD set:
Mixtaped Disc One:
* No-Man’s complete Bush Hall live performance with 5.1 and stereo options (90 mins).
* Live photo gallery – Including photos from all three of No-Man’s first live concerts in 15 years, with an exclusive soundtrack of the song Housekeeping (recorded live in Dusseldorf).
Mixtaped Disc Two:
* Returning – A 90 minute career-spanning documentary including previously unseen footage, photos and images, and in-depth interviews with every member of No-Man past and present (including Tim Bowness, Steven Wilson, Ben Coleman and Chris Maitland). Directed by award winning journalist Richard Smith, Returning is the story of No-Man.
* Extras – Complete videos for several No-Man songs spanning 1990-2008.

Here is the fantastic new promo for Back When You Were Beautiful, which won the Animation Trophy/Best Animation Award at the Kent Film Festival on September 26th 2009. Taken from a song originally released on 2003′s Returning Jesus album, the entirely-CGI video was created by Neil Whitman over a seven-month period, and can be seen below.
