Hands down one of my favorite artists! Gary Wilson is a experimental muscian/performance artist who has built a rabid cult following since releasing his groundbreaking album "You Think You Really Know Me" in 1977. He lapsed into obscurity from the public eye until the late 90s, when Beck was heard citing him as an influence, most notably in his hit single "Where It's At". He released a new full length on Stones Throw records in 2004 titled "Mary Had Brown Hair." I got in touch with Gary awhile ago over email and was able to purchase two early and rare 7 inches from him. Both 7 inches below were limited to 500 copies. Be sure to check out Gary's site at http://www.sixpointfour.com and buy some of his full length records.
GARY WILSON - "This Is Why I Wear My Wedding Gown" 7 inch (1978)
GARY WILSON - "Invasion of Privacy" 7 inch (1980)

My good friend Bryan recently leant me his usb turntable. I've been capturing a lot of vinyl that I will be posting on this blog over the next month. The first is from the almighty Ink & Dagger. I've been looking for the Sensation 7" in mp3 format for awhile to no avail so I had to capture and post it here first. If you don't know who Ink & Dagger is check out their Wiki. Enjoy! Look out for a lot more posts over the next few days.

Dear Ephesus was a band from Orlando, Florida in the late Nineties. They came out of the Sunny Day Real Estate/Mineral scene and like both of those bands had strong Christian overtones in their lyrics. If you can get past that you will be treated to some really great "post rock", "emo", or whatever phrase you want to attach to it. I got to see them play live when I was in high school and was blown away at the intensity of their live performance. The records do a good job at capturing the energy of the band. Both albums are out of print and hard to find but pick a copy up if you can find one!
DEAR EPHESUS - "The Consolation Of Pianissimo"
DEAR EPHESUS - "The Absent Sounds Of Me"
