NoMen-logo

January  SPACE; recorded at the end of 2014 this space-age album popped out at the start of the year. Classic NoMen mix of weird space rock and sixties ‘Spotniks’ twang!
Jumping on the Facebook bandwagon of slowing songs down to last for hours we did the dirty to “The Greatest Punchline”  from last years ‘Milk Tray’ album and renamed it “The Longest Punchline!” Dreadful…

February – Live in the studio recordings of Hawkwind’s “Hurry on Sundown” and our own “Let’s Escape Reality”.

March – Started work on “The World According to Tony Day” for the Fruits de Mer Bowie cover version album “Fashion” released on CD in December.
Recorded a four track session for Flat Ed’s PopCast Radio Show.
Started work on the soundtrack to Dan Mudford’s film BD200. Various pieces we had recorded were used as a basis for this project which was eventually released on DVD in August this Year.

April – Billy NoMan joins the band on MOOG and other electronics.

May – The Glam Rock Years; The NoMen imagined themselves as an early seventies Glam Rock band for this seven track mini album.
Every Sound Has A Colour; an electronic soundtrack to an imaginary travelogue. Contains unused elements from Dan Mudford’s BD200 soundtrack.
