Gary Wilson: Electric Endicott 


Somewhere Linda, Karen, Mary and Lisa are wishing they never met Gary Wilson. The unbelievably strange cult singer is haunted by the same girl-ghosts on Electric Endicott who have stalked his psyche and dominated his songwriting on his past three records. Wilson is still obsessed with those ex-girlfriends. But on Electric Endicott, the freakish experimentation and stalker-talk that hooked avant-garde fans in the past is lost in between plinking keyboard lines and tinny drum machines.


Granted, this album is still slightly left of normal. Wilson, like always, cowers at the mic: no bravado, no machismo and no confidence in his vocals. But while in the past his stories of watching girls from the shadows co-mingled with bizarre, psychedelic electronics, Electric Endicott does away with the musical weirdness. And without that, you just have a hotel lounge album made by a 50-something guy who talks constantly about old girlfriends. That's not visionary - it's just creepy.

Recommended Download: "Kathy Kissed Me Last Night"
