Gary Wilson’s synth-laden 1977 debut You Think You Really Know Me had few analogues in popular music at the time of its release. Though it’s since been championed by hip-hop producers, leftfield indie rockers, and a host of others as something of an outsider’s masterpiece, it remains a singular and enigmatic record that blends the sonic experimentation and synthetic minimalism of early Suicide, with a deranged brand of sometimes alienating confessionalism and a professional’s flair for eccentric pop songwriting.
