Feeding Tube Records presents the first-ever vinyl edition of rare and unreleased material by '70s lounge-wave weirdo Gary Wilson.- Includes unreleased studio tracks from the same period as his 1977 classic You Think You Really Know Me, single tracks and takes from Wilson's earlier material. - Cited by Beck, The Residents and Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.- "Gary Wilson successfully jumped between new wave synth spasms, soundtrack jazz and skronk, James Brown pep, noise collage, pre-Prince strut, and the Jonathan Richman School of Painfully Geeky Lyricism way back in the mid-'70s, as evidenced here ... I wonder if the boys at the Pitchfork office weren't just trying to put me on a sick trip or something." --Pitchfork First vinyl issue of this collection of rare and unreleased material by one of the most iconoclastic musicians produced by the 1970s. Gary Wilson's 1977 LP, You Think You Really Know Me, is a classic of alternate-universe lounge-wave, and has been cited as choice by everyone from The Residents to Beck Hansen. Forgotten Lovers includes unreleased studio tracks from the same period, subsequent singles tracks, as well as samples of Wilson's pre-You Think You Really Know Me records (a single and an album) which were more in a porn-soundtrack/jazz-funk vein. Gary has reanimated his career in the last decade, and we raise our hats to him for doing so, but this early stuff is really the donkey's eyelids. A classic bizzaro-world blend of various "real people" elements and explosive new wave dynamics. As rich as butter, you'll want to spread this music on your torso to promote tanning.
