Next Friday, Oct. 28,
Roky Erickson will perform at El Club
. Today you have the opportunity to meditate on just how awesome that show will be while listening to the
first album by his band the Thirteenth Floor Elevators
That band arguably invented psychedelic rock music down in Texas, with a primary part of their sound a crazily oscillating amplified jug.
The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators
was released 50 years ago yesterday, on Oct. 17, 1966.
