      "It was 1977 when twenty-three-year-old Gary Wilson released You Think
      You Really Know Me. He recorded the album in the basement of his
      parents’ house, bestowing upon his songs hormonal titles like “Groovy
      Girls Make Love At the Beach” and “6.4 = Make Out.” In turn, his
      tracks reflected the oddball nature of their creator, coming together
      as a wonderful mess of cabaret jazz, squashed funk, chaotic new wave,
      and teen idol fawning. Similarly, Wilson’s performances drew heavily
      on his love of avant-garde theater and art—things that piqued his
      interest when he was twelve-years-old—and he frequently played wrapped
      in various items that obscured his face. While his shows were
      unpredictable, their outlandishness was not. To the wonder of his
      audience (and to add to the peculiarity of his performance), he often
      threw flour (or paint or chocolate milk) in his face. Wilson’s music
      demanded a strong response from anyone who came across it. Hardly
      anyone did."
