No Violins formed in early 1989 in Rockhampton, Australia. They released a self-produced EP of 4 original songs in 1991, called Venerdi? (Italian word for Friday). After touring locally in Australia for a number of years, the band split as members moved away and on to other projects. The band has re-formed recently to re-record the original EP from 1991 over 30 years later.
