Dictionary Pudding are hugely proud to welcome the long-awaited return of Kings Heath legends...
With a new album out shortly on Domino Recording Company - these are very exciting times for PRAM, one of the most uniquely enthralling underground artists of the last 30 years - their return in these troubling times is extremely welcome!
Birmingham's Pram craft fairytales from concrete reality. The second city's spin cycle of perpetual renovation, from the slum clearances to its current cosmetic upgrade, is etched in Pram's restless groove, an endearing and gently refusenik mix encircling early Rough Trade innovators The Raincoats, astro jazz, sci-fi soundtracks, creepy Victoriana, tropical analogue and tumbledown funk.
To say Pram have always ploughed their own furrow is to underestimate the breadth and scale of their music. To listen to this record is to hear a group who have learned to play together whilst teaching each other a new language. The Moving Frontier is Pram at their most widescreen, they've created a mysterious and wonderful landscape that's sky-wide open.
The Lexington is an 18+ venue - please bring ID!
