No-Man – Mixtaped – 2 disc DVD set

No-Man are Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson.

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.

After receiving ecstatic press reviews, indie top 20 hits and high profile contracts in the early 1990s (with One Little Indian and Epic/ Sony), the band has continued to evolve throughout its subsequent career.

Redefining itself with a constantly changing musical palette, No-Man has most recently released material through celebrated post- progressive label Kscope, and built up a loyal worldwide following drawn to the band's increasingly ambitious and personal sound.

Drawing from a diverse mix of minimalist, singer-songwriter, pop, art rock and ambient sources for inspiration, No-Man's music is an emotional and powerful fusion of lush soundscapes, sensuous songs and sonic surprises.

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.

At the start of their career, No-Man were described as 'conceivably the most important band since The Smiths' (Melody Maker). Almost 20 years later, they're 'Britain's most underrated sorrowful sonic architects' (Uncut).

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.

Above all, Returning is the story of two musicians who've stuck to their belief in the transformative power of popular music, and the music industry's sometimes tense relationships with art, commerce and its audience.

Extras - Complete videos for several No-Man songs spanning 1990-2008.
Rare live footage.
No-Man 'live timeline'.

Biography

Over the course of six massively varied albums, 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.

After receiving ecstatic press reviews, indie top 20 hits and high profile contracts in the early 1990s (with One Little Indian, Hit & Run/EMI Publishing and Epic/Sony), the band has continued to evolve throughout its intriguing career.

Redefining itself with a constantly changing musical palette, No-Man has subsequently released material through Snapper Music / Kscope and its own online shop (via www.burningshed.com), building up a loyal worldwide cult following drawn to the band’s increasingly ambitious sound.

The band, consisting of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has worked with electro-pioneers Scanner and Muzlimgauze, Jazz luminaries Ian Carr and Theo Travis, as well as collaborating with the legendary likes of King Crimson personnel, Robert Fripp and Mel Collins, Roger Eno, and ex-Japan members, Jansen, Barbieri and Karn.

Drawing from a diverse mix of Minimalist, Singer-songwriter, Pop, Art Rock and Contemporary Electronica sources for inspiration, No-Man’s music is an emotive and potent fusion of panoramic soundscapes, sensuous songs and sonic surprises.

On May 12th (Europe) and June 10th (North America), 2008, the band release their first album for half a decade, Schoolyard Ghosts. The mini-site to the album, featuring a video and downloads can be seen here, Schoolyard Ghosts can be bought from the Kscope store here.
