Pram

As indicated by their name, Pram brought a distinctly childlike world-view to their uniquely cinematic brand of fractured electro-pop; unlike the cutesy, baby-doll mentality that informed the work of many of their more whimsical contemporaries, however, the group's vision of childhood was decidedly nightmarish, evoking a hallucinatory world of helplessness and fear. Formed in Birmingham, England, in 1990, Pram originally fostered an aesthetic consisting primarily of frontwoman Rosie Cuckston's eerie vocals and the sounds of a homemade theremin, but the unit's ranks later swelled to include multi-instrumentalist Matt Eaton, bassist Sam Owen, and keyboardist/sampler Max Simpson. After their bare-bones 1992 EP debut, Gash, Pram's music began to grow more intricate, their odd melodies and hypnotic beats textured by toy pianos, triangles, glockenspiels, glass hammers, and even a Hawaiian bubble machine; the 1993 releases Iron Lung and the full-length The Stars Are So Big, the Earth Is So Small...Stay as You Are greatly expanded their horizons by experimenting with sound and structure, and by the release of 1994's Helium they even began incorporating elements of jazz and hip-hop.

Pram's progress continued with 1995's excellent Sargasso Sea, a deeper plunge into sampling that yielded their most taut material to date. Another EP, Music for Your Movies, followed in late 1996, and in 1998 Pram returned with the full-length North Pole Radio Station. Fall 2000 saw the release of The Museum of Imaginary Animals. The following year the group issued the Somniloquy EP, and then returned with another full-length, Dark Island, in early 2003. Pram worked on other projects, such as the Static Caravan compilation Binary Oppositions, to which they contributed a track, and remixed a song by Indian singer Mohammed Rafi, "Babul Ki Duayein Leti Ja." Eaton collaborated on a score to the classic silent film Nosferatu with Grandmaster Gareth from the band Misty's Big Adventure, who provided string arrangements on Dark Island and Pram's following album, The Moving Frontier. The band's 11th full-length, The Moving Frontier, was released in fall 2007 in the U.K. and nearly a year later in the U.S. ~ Jason Ankeny
