13th Floor Elevators - You're Gonna Miss Me

David brought up the subject of these guys and Lew dug up this rough but potent old video on this Austin band in the '60s:

(Backup is a lot like "G-L_O_R_I_A Gloria…")
It's had over 800,000 views. If you watch this full-screen it's like a liquid black and white movie -- pretty striking. Actually like a B&w light show…

More music du jour: Lucinda Williams and Dan Penn doing "Dedicated to the One I Love," and Stevie Winwood doing "Thirty Second Lover" on a kick-ass album, just out: Dedicated - Steve Cropper - Salute to the 5 Royales

My favorite band... Amazing to see you mention them (on one of my favorite blogs). The band's biography book "Eye Mind" is well worth a read. An amazing collection of tales.

You can feel the collective energy flying right off him.
Roky was the real deal.

Did anyone mention that Roky coined the term 'Psychedelic Rock'?
