Theories

I Teoremi (The Theories) were a brilliant, young prog band from Rome. This album, released in 1972 was to be the band's only statement. The songs range from downright hard psych to mathy numbers, to dreamier passages, all with the typically melodramatic Italian vocals of a character called Lord Enzo. You will love this album, especially if your name is Don Anderson.

Thanks! You're really doing a great service by putting all this cool, weird music up here. I've discovered quite a few things that I've enjoyed.

Listened to this a couple of times now. I dig it. Goes nicely with some Toad.

this stuff is brilliant, track two is insane!

teoremi translates to theorem on babelfish: "a formula, proposition, or statement in mathematics or logic deduced or to be deduced from other formulas or propositions"

kinda makes sense with their music.

anyways, thanks!

Hey dude. Just letting you know that I've done some investigation, and there's actually a track missing from your album. I found an alternate download which has all nine tracks, in m4a (which I can't use). The bitrate's higher too, which will make the nerds happy.

Still, this is fantastic, so thanks for posting about them.

What the hell do they put in the water in Italy? Love that far-out prog, esp with foreign language lyrics. Keep up the good works!
