Pram Jam

It's wonderful when you do a little bit of spring cleaning and you run across some records that haven't been listened to in years.

England's Pram and their 2000 record The Museum of Imaginary Animals sounds every bit as good today as it did back then.

I've always identified them along with Broadcast and Stereolab as part of the keyboard triumpharite. If Stereolab is the drink and Broadcast the marijuana, Pram is the LSD.

I came across this funny yet perfect description of them at

"PRAM are best described as kitsch - horror music , incorporating Fisher Price toys, triangles and glockenspiels with eerie keyboards , horns in a jazz tinged lounge music style, which is best summed up as 'uneasy listening' music."

Pram - Mother of Pearl
Pram - Bewitched
Pram - A Million Bubbles Burst
