Kracq or King's Ransom and Carmine Queen, formed in 1977 and disbanded in 1980, one album in 1978 called "Cirmuvision" and there are some kind of "Cellar Tapes" in the 90's which I didn't find much info yet.

Members were: Bert Vermijs (synthesizers, keyboards, vocals), Jos Hustings (guitar, vocals), Cees Michielsen (drums, percussion, 1977-1979), Twan van der Heiden (bass guitar, 1977-1979), Charlot Rutten (vocals, 1980), Toni Guarracino (vocals, recorder, 1980.

Discogs has the info on the album "Circumvision though: http://www.discogs.com/Kracq-Circumvision/release/2284977"

I hear a lot of the stuff that hallmarked most of the late 70s prog bands. Lots of synths, galloping Genesis like rhythms and then those guitars.
Based on the feel of the keys and several fingers pointing towards symphonic, that's where I'm sending this act...

Somewhere in the evening - Jazz rhythms, jumpy organ motifs, spacey synth textures, odd time sig shifts, - Eclectic prog

Y - synth soaked chimes and odd time sigs. VDGG keyboard touches, strange spacey synths, lengthy fast piano run sections, then a fast tempo with guitar and staccato organ. - no idea - perhaps jazz style

Put up the Organized Fight - vocals finally! Sound like Diagonal's vocals or Nektar. Time sigs all over the map, driving VDGG bassline, more synths over frenetic percussion, slower layered synth solo,  - eclectic feel

Day In and Day Out - birds whistling and spacey synth sirens like Gary Numan or Kraftwerk. Jazz fusion Piano over the top and a bassline, with loud choral synths - weird melody and very spacey. Has a synth freakout in the middle, very fast and psychedelic. Jazz/space rock I think.

To A Square - Acoustics and a building percussion, proggish time sig, vocals are distant and a bit like Nektar. VDGG bassline again, more synths than you can poke a stick at, and a jazz rhythm in the centre. Bizarre Time sigs are constantly changing. Eclectic prog!

Not Symphonic!!! - perhaps eclectic. Kind of sounds at times like VDGG but very jazzy and spaced out.
