***Medical Records’ celebration of 1990’s seminal works on the famous Too Pure label continues with the long overdue reissue of 1993’s The Stars Are So Big… by Birmingham, England’s very own PRAM. This is the first of two simultaneous Pram reissues by Medical Records (the 2nd being 1994’s Helium). Originally hailing from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, some of the members (who went to school together) moved to Birmingham where they began playing music together. Forming with a more primitive aesthetic with typical keyboards, guitar, drums, and bass guitar, the band eventually began exploring playing multiple instruments including unique and unusual toy instruments and other gear such as theremin, glockenspiel, glass hammer, etc. Their first EP (produced by Godflesh/Jesu frontman JUSTIN BROADRICK) was heavier, more raw and with a more unrefined overall vibe. They were signed to Too Pure (already home to Stereolab, Mouse On Mars, and PJ Harvey) and then released an EP Iron Lung, which began to display their evolving sound and one of a kind identity. Strongly influenced by krautrock such as Can and Faust as well as jazz elements and the Raincoats, The Stars Are So Big… was released in 1993. They were joined by a trumpeter on the recording as well which further diversified the sound. Long out of print from it’s original release. Presented on high-quality 180-gram heavyweight colored vinyl featuring original reproduction artwork and insert featuring part one of an extensive interview with the band by DAVE SEGAL.
