"Beck name-checked him, dude, he's like the white Prince. Pure Game."- Pitchfork
"Gary Wilson’s name belongs with his idols like Frank Zappa, The Residents, Captain Beefheart and John Cage as one of the great fearless musicians of the last century." - NY Press
"Wilson has always made us feel like it's OK to be a weirdo, and as with all of his music, his honesty has most likely seeped into the sounds of Electric Endicott as well." - CMJ.com
Set your DVRs, VHS players, or just plain tune-in to what will surely be a memorable TV moment tomorrow night. For his first ever National TV performance, Gary Wilson, the reigning king of outsider art, and inspiration to artists such as Beck, Simpsons creator Matt Groening, and Stones Throws' Peanut Butter Wolf, Questlove and The Roots personally invited Gary to play with them on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon! The internet is abuzz, speculating as to what will happen during the appearance, with Questlove responding to it all with an "oh hell yeah"[sic].
