Fog Window is the latest incarnation of Devin Gary & Ross. The usual line up of Devin Flynn, Gary Panter & Ross Goldstein adds Lily Rogers and Curtis Godino of the band Worthless. Their contributions to the Fog Window recordings cannot be understated. Lily’s vocals characterize a fair majority of the sweetest songs on the album, and Curtis’ presence is felt throughout whether it be the memorable guitar figures or lyrical keyboard contributions. I must point out that this double album is the result of three generations coming together and relating. That is relevant. That is progressive!
Gary Panter, Emmy Award winning designer of Pee Wee’s Playhouse, RAW magazine’s quintessential punk cartoonist and author/creator of JIMBO & Daltokyo, reveals to us through Fog Window a big sky, dreamy and lysergic enveloping a landscape with a multitude of textures and tones with every turn resulting in a very colorful and at times, intimate musicaljourney. This music did not come out of nowhere… Gary had collaborated with The Residents on a double A side single “Tornader To The Tater/ Italian Sunglass Movie” in 1982 and the Pray For Smurph LP was released on Japanese label Overheat Records in 1983. After One Hell Soundwich a split LP with longtime friend and cohort Jay Cotton was released by Blast First in 1989, Gary’s musical output had summarily ceased, that is until resuming in 2006 by forming Devin & Gary with Devin Flynn, and later adding Ross Goldstein to the project.
