Biography

Australia

note: also, Mark Perry-Brown (known as KRAM) is british deathstep/dubstep/drum’n’bass producer that debuted on Damaged Sounds label.

Mark Maher (aka Kram) is the drummer/singer of Australian band Spiderbait. He also appeared at the 2004 benefit concert for the South-East Asian tsunami, Wave Aid, as a member of supergroup The Wrights who performed Stevie Wright’s 3 part classic, “Evie”.

When it came time to cut a solo album, Spiderbait’s co-vocalist and percussive lynchpin Kram had a deceptively simple philosophy. “I wanted it to be like a radio station where all the songs sound like different bands but its all played by one person,” he explains. “The premise of the whole album was to be constantly changing your approach musically.”
One listen to Mix Tape and you’ll grasp exactly what he means. The 15 tracks veer from spooky Prince-like soul (“Burnin’ Sands”) and storming fuzz rock (“Good Love”) to melancholic country ballads (“Won’t Be Home Tonight”) and funky pop jams that could be a lo-fi Scissor Sisters (“Satellite”). It’s an eclectic, invigorating collection of songs that fits with its creator’s clear intentions.

Kram debuted Mix Tape with a prestigious Friday night slot at December’s Meredith Music Festival. “I wanted it to be fresh and do whatever sounded good without any preconceptions. That’s what’s been liberating about it and why it’s come out so well.”
