Roky Erickson - Evil Hook w Demos For Demons w Gremlins Have Pictures w Mad Dog w Don't Slander Me w Roky's The Best w The Evil One w It's So High w Various Live and 13th Floor Elevators 8 Track

Well tonight I finally get to see Roky live!  I am very excited and since he fits nicely into this theme I am posting all I have for you.  Most of this is from Pablo at Bomber blog and it features the newly uncoverered superior versions from 8-track tape back in the day of 13th Floor Elevator tunes and an absolutely hilarious 'controller breakdown' tirade from Roky due to 'mind programming' from his recording engineer in the studio similar to lots of modern newscasters I seem to listen to as first track on the Evil Hook boot.

I just stumbled across a petition to induct Roky into the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame.

I can't see it happening, though it'd be nice if it did. Billy Gibbons could give the induction speech.

Well he's got my voice. He really shedded it up last night with his son playing with him all the old hits. Although I'm against these new 'no moshing' theater clubs as I think it's essential to let people elbow around so they can move in packed quarters--took everything I could wiggle up during 'Slip Inside This House' and hanging around stoners directly in front of stage to get any kind of audience response going--interaction is crucial to a good show as opposed to lethargy and bland gentrified shows.

Hi gang!

Thanks for the upload of 13 Floor Elevators and Roky Erickson stuff. I really appreciate your effort.

Any chance of a reup of this album, the file is not available on Zippyshare.

Any chance of getting the original Gremlins Have Pictures? The version of Heroin on the the first cd pressing is way better
