GARY WILSON DIRECT TO DISC
Limited edition single LP, recorded live, directly to vinyl.
Gary Wilson. Born Endicott NY 1953.
Picks up bass, picks up on home recording, hangs out with John Cage at age 14 (scary, right?). Releases self-recorded jazz album in 1970. It’s rare, don’t bother looking.
Mid-70s. Gary gets weird. Records and self-releases You Think You Really Know Me in 1976, an album full of tales of groovy girls, chromium bitches, and mysterious calculations like “6.4 = Make Out.”
Gary disappears. Small cult grows. Beck name-drops him in a rap song.
2002. Gary re-emerges, gets weirder. Releases “Mary Had Brown Hair” on Stones Throw. No one knows what to make of it. Even Bizarre Magazine thinks he’s crazy (read: A Musical Guide To Stalking Your Ex Girlfriends).
This is a limited edition, single vinyl pressing of Gary Wilson & The Blind Dates, recorded live, dirtily to vinyl, at Stones Throw’s Direct To Disc #2 in Los Angeles, May 2011.
