Actual fact: actual Gary Wilson, actual legend, signs with Tip Records
For reals. The man about whom Beck sang, in “Where It’s At”: “My man Gary Wilson rocks the most.” The man whom the New York Times called “odd” and “wonderful.” The man about whom they made the documentary You Think You Really Know Me, which premiered at Lincoln Center. The man who performed on Jimmy Fallon last year because ?uestlove is one of his big fans (another one is Matt Groening).
Yeah, that Gary Wilson.
And on November 4, 2011, Tip Records — yeah, that Tip Records, an otherwise inexplicable division of Duncan/Channon — is going to release Gary’s next album, Feel the Beat, which happens to be the same day he headlines the First Annual Tip Records Holiday Extravaganza at Public Works in San Francisco. True story (unlike some of the stuff on this site).
