Housekeeping is a comprehensive remastered collection of No-Man’s output for the OLI label between 1990-1994.
Featuring the band’s first two albums Loveblows & Lovecries (1993) and Flowermouth (1994), along with the singles compilation Lovesighs (1992), the deluxe 5CD Earbook also contains outtakes, alternate versions and the band’s sessions for BBC radio from the period (which reveal a very different, more visceral, side to the band’s output).
Formed by Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson, the band also included violinist Ben Coleman and the albums featured notable appearances by Mick Karn and Steve Jansen (Japan/Rain Tree Crow), Robert Fripp, Ian Carr, Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance), and soon to be Porcupine Tree members Richard Barbieri, Chris Maitland and Colin Edwin.
Containing driving Electronic Pop music, epic Ambient Rock suites and emotive groove-enhanced ballads, Housekeeping is a lovingly compiled tribute to the creative anomaly that is (and was) No-Man.
Designed by Carl Glover, the hardback book includes essays by Matt Hammers (author of No-Man blog, All The Blue Changes), Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson, alongside rare photos and memorabilia.
Burning Shed is offering an exclusive signed art print with the box set.
