2016 brings big news for fans of DIY/Outsider legend Gary Wilson. While some of his most dedicated admirers may have stumbled across a reference to Lord Fuzz at some point, it is highly unlikely that they have actually heard Lord Fuzz. This is because the band, a childhood musical endeavor of the genius, only pressed a handful of copies of their sole release nearly 50 years ago. That's all about to change in 2016, however, with the help of Cleopatra Records.
After repeated requests and increased interest from Gary fans around the globe, the master tape reels have been located, and Cleopatra Records will be "re-releasing" this rarest of gems in 2016. While hanging out with Gary at his home the other day, we found ourselves talking about Lord Fuzz, and I wanted to share Gary's background to the latest addition to his DIY archive of genius.
As always, more continuing details on this project, as well upcoming Gary Wilson releases and shows as the exciting information becomes available.
