Info zu Schoolyard Ghosts (Remastered)

Mit dem Sänger Tim Bowness lebt Porcupine-Tree-Chef Steven Wilson seit 20 Jahren seine andere Seite aus: die Introvertiertheit. Ihr Duoprojekt No-Man führt den besinnlichen Artpop fort, den einst David Sylvian mit Japan schuf und später solo ins völlig Verinnerlichte trieb. Ihre bisherigen Alben waren Studien in elektronischer Statik, Musik für Momente des Innehaltens. 'Schoolyard Ghosts' ist das immer noch, widmet sich aber deutlich mehr den Reizen akustischer Instrumentierung. Einen so vollen, molligen Klaviersound wie im Eröffnungsstück gab es noch nicht auf No-Man-Alben, die bald folgende Akustikgitarre überrascht ebenfalls - und noch viel mehr die Metalexplosion in 'Pigeon Drummer'. Tim Bowness singt von Songs, die man kennen sollte, von Mixtapes und der Kraft des Lichtes, und er tut das mit jenem beigemischten Hauchen, das auch Sylvian so virtuos beherrscht. Ein instrumental geradezu zärtlich gestaltetes Album, gefertigt aus Vorsicht und Behutsamkeit. Eins für jene Sommertage, an denen Nebel über der Stadt hängt und die Busfahrer streiken. (mw)

No-Man
is a British duo formed in 1987 by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson.

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.

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 and Epic/Sony), the band has continued to evolve throughout its subsequent career.

Redefining itself with its constantly changing musical palette, No-Man has released material through celebrated post-progressive label Kscope and its own online shop (via www.burningshed.com), building up a loyal worldwide cult following drawn to the band's increasingly ambitious and personal 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 Roger Eno, King Crimson personnel, Robert Fripp, Pat Mastelotto and Mel Collins, 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.
