A.R. Kane Biography (Wikipedia)
A.R. Kane (sometimes AR Kane or A.R.Kane) was a British musical duo formed in 1986 by Alex Ayuli and Rudy Tambala. In the late 1980s, the duo coined the term "dream pop" to describe their sound, which drew on diverse sources such as dub, psychedelia, free jazz, and house. After releasing two early EPs to critical acclaim, A.R. Kane topped the UK independent charts with their albums 69 (1988) and "i" (1989). They also released the surprise dance hit "Pump Up the Volume" in 1987 as part of the one-off collaboration MARRS.
The group broke up in 1994. Though their work fell into relative obscurity in subsequent years, they have been characterized by critics as among the most innovative and underrated groups of their era. In 2012, One Little Indian released Complete Singles Collection, which compiled the group's single and EP releases.
