STKZ014 KRAM RAN "The Idiot Prince"
Tapes and CDR (50 limited series)
Kram Ran is Mark Wohlgemuth from the duo Alpha couple.Dark noise.
Emotive sometimes to the point of disturbing gracelessness, sometimes disturbing grace.
Literary concepts & complex cerebral intentions merge with blind frenzy. Post Canada.
"Kram Ran seems to capture the paradox of a hostile Eden, only brought back to earth in whisps of distorted dialogue, eerily detached from any context. The Idiot Prince is both ascetic and seductive."
- Emma Behnke, Associate Net Radio Director, WNYU Radio
"No doubt that Kram Ran has packed this release full of references that could be pulled apart and identified for years, but even on the surface, he’s made something noisy yet enjoyable. (Xiu Xiu is the first and easiest comparison that comes to mind). But The Idiot Prince is in it for the long haul. (Kram Ran for the Polaris!)"
- Taylor Burgess, Stylus Magazine
