No Torso is an eight piece, DIY ska band from Oslo, Norway. The band began in 2001 as a three-piece with just Eivind, Chris, and Martin as members. Between then and 2006, the band would add members and drop only one until the currently lineup was formed. Despite being from Scandinavia, the band is involved and celebrated in the United States' ska and DIY scene. This is due in large part to their relations with seminal and long-standing independent label Asian Man Records. Asian Man had released the band's debut full-length effort, Several Brains, in 2006 to warm critical and popular reception.
Since the release of Several Brains, No Torso has recorded a second release, entitled "Ready Already", which was also released during the West Coast leg of the band's first United States tour. The tour itself took place during the summer of 2008 and in some instances, was shared with other Asian Man bands such as Lemuria and Bomb The Music Industry!.
