The irony of Gary Young's career, which historians of Pavement's early years never fail to mention, was that Gary was a "Yes fan in an indie band." Truth be told, Gary never did have much exposure to indie rock prior to joining Pavement--it was uniquely different--Gary had a bona fide crash course in indie rock. "Slanted and Enchanted" defined a style for a decade and it wasn't until Gary left Pavement that he truly realized what he helped create. But the irony doesn't end there. In 1994, Gary released his first solo album. It was titled "Gary Young's Hospital." One might have expected it to be a return to his prog rock heritage. But no. Hospital was without a doubt indie rock. Perhaps the sound had seeped in through his pours. Perhaps Gary was an indie rocker all along. Who knows? In December 2000, Gary and Terry Blank (guitars/keyboards/samples) began construction on Hospital's long awaited follow up record. In December 2003, Hospital will realize it's second album on Omnibus Records – "The Grey Album." Hospital will begin touring in May 2004. Gary tours with Terry Blank, and a revamped band including Duby Geurra (Bass), and J. McCrory (Keyboards).
