Roky Erickson/13th Floor Elevators

Surely the innovators of acid rock, every member of the band went absolutely schizoid after years of lsd abuse. All suffered an MC5 near extinction except for Roky with his amazing talent. After spending years in a mental institution, he got back in the saddle to release some fine (punkish) gems such as

YouTube - Roky Erickson - Two Headed Dog 1980

Some 13th you may recognize:

YouTube - 13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me

Anyway, there's a new documentary that I just can't wait to see:

YouTube - You're Gonna Miss Me - Trailer

and yes.....I was at my mothers teat at the time.

One of my all-time favorite bands, The Screaming Trees, were bigtime fans of thirteenth floors.

I think they were from San Jose California.

I remember You're Gonna Miss Me. It was a big hit in the summer of 1966.

There was LOT of good music that year.

Such as this: "Pushing too Hard" by the Seeds out of Oxnard, Calif.

YouTube - Seeds - "Pushin' Too Hard"

Buffalo Springfield, Turtles, Beach Boys good vibrations, and

so many more
