AR Kane (live) what can we say about AR Kane that has not been said before? Critic Jason Ankeny described them as “arguably the most criminally under-recognized band of their era”. They were an important progenitor of such musical developments as dream-pop, shoegazing, trip hop, ambient dub and post rock. The Guardian has called their work “some of the 80s’ most extraordinary music”. AR Kane have undoubtedly influenced My Bloody Valentine, and artists such as Slowdive, Seefeel, and Dubstar have cited them as an influence. Fact Magazine described them as “A cult dream-pop act”.
