Gary Wilson - You Think You Really Know Me (1977)

You Think You Really Know Me is basically an album made by Gary Wilson, who's telling us about girls he wants to fuck. Gary Wilson was a distorted mind, who probably hadn't had enough attention from his parents and his peers. He went to Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, where Dylan and all the others recorded their music and decided it was best to record his album in his parents' basement. He financed, distributed and made all the records himself and the first pressing was made for 300 copies in 1977.

He then retired from music in 1981 after a lot of bizarre shows that contained fake blood, flour, cellophane, duct tape and bed sheets and was rediscovered in the 90s when Beck named him as an influence. He started making music again, and released a new album in 2004.
