About Wild Opera

In 1996, No-Man announced their return on a new label, 3rd Stone Ltd., home of Spacemen 3 and Bark Psychosis. This was led by the Housewives Hooked on Heroin single (a Hot Press “Single of the Fortnight”), a taster for the Wild Opera album which followed that autumn.

Most of the album had emerged from a series of semi-spontaneous improvisations recorded over a few hours, rather than planned-out attempts at songwriting. The raw results of three such sessions appeared on the album.

The title track itself is unlisted and appears as a ‘hidden’ bonus track.
