Off The Charts
Monday February 22nd, 2010 with Chris Ikonomopoulos

I Won't Cry
Symphonic Slam - Symphonic Slam - 1976 - TNT / A&M Canadian
Prog/Synth'ed out project fronted by Timo Laine. Over the top music, creepy stalker inspired lyrics (never cool, for real), and a "fully Polyphonic Guitar Synthesizer System...[which]...contains six synthesizers, one for each string". Serious - not only in its ridiculously, but at the same time also serious in its intentions! Tripped out LP cover to reinforce the all around heaviness to boot.
