ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Overhead Projector is a collection of all of Kelowna B.C. 's Gentlemen of Horror's recordings from 1980-82.After releasing their now sought after e.p. "Sterling Death" in 1981,Tom Hooper(punk name Casey Casem)vocals and guitar,Chris Hooper(punk name Nigel Watts)drums and vocals, and Donny Walchuk(punk name Friendly Giant)bass, recorded two more studio sessions in '81 and '82.The album that they had hoped to release from these recordings never materialized and the band disbanded in 1983.
Also included is cassette recordings of their infamous Kelowna City Park concert from the summer of 1981,it was Kelowna's first punk rock show and the five hundred patrons,which included the mayor,were treated to a thousand miles an hour screaming blast of teenage rebellion of which they had never heard before.The concert quickly escalated into a near riot with beer bottles being hurled at the band and insults being shouted back and forth by the audience and band until the police finally intervened and the shut down the show,the ensuing conversation between drummer Chris Hooper and the police constable can be heard at the end.
And finally included is a cassette recording from one of the bands rehearsals in bassist Donny Walchuk(punk name Friendly Giant)bedroom.These songs were staples of the bands last shows but never properly recorded in a studio.
After the demise of the Gentlemen of Horror,Tom and Chris Hooper went on to form another band called the Grapes of Wrath who became one of the most popular Canadian bands of the late 80's and early 90's.
