- A.R. Kane (or A R Kane or A.R.Kane) were a British dream pop duo consisting of Alex Ayuli and Rudi Tambala. Their name derived from the "A" in Alex (Ayuli) and the "R" in Rudi (Tambala), the band's core multi-instrumentalist duo. The duo hailed from the East side of London. Often surrealist and usually danceable, due to its strong dub influence, the band's music is seen as a seminal influence on genres such as dream pop, trip hop, acid house, and post-rock. Their lyrics frequently dealt with such topics as water/oceans, love, colorus, childhood, and dreams.
They began by releasing two 12" singles, each on a trend-setting U.K. indie label (One Little Indian and 4AD). They also were part of a surprise world-wide number one chart hit as the "A/R/R" in the collective M/A/R/R/S's "Pump Up the Volume" (along with 4AD label-mates Colourbox).
Well what I heard from them is quite nice but the best record they made is the EP "Lollita" it's tearing her mother apart
