During his six-year hiatus from Sun Dial, Ramon embarked on an ambitious solo project, Quad, which combined ambient electronica with kraut rock. The result was a pair of self-titled albums. The first of these was released on Ramon's own Acme Records in 1997 as a 1000-copy limited edition on 12" clear vinyl with a transparent sleeve. The second Quad album was released in 1998 on the Prescription label as a 99-copy limited edition LP.
Both albums are now highly sought-after collectors' items.
