Roky Erickson co-founded the 13th Floor Elevators in late 1965. He and bandmate Tommy Hall were the main songwriters. Documentary film on the life of Roky Erickson titled You’re Gonna Miss Me was made by director Keven McAlester and screened at the 2005 SXSW film festival. In September of the same year, Erickson performed his first full-length concert in 20 years at the annual Austin City Limits Music Festival with The Explosives with special guest and longtime associate, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top. He is now on tour with The Hounds of Baskerville, and will be live in Washington, DC on November 12th!
“Going to in to any performance by Roky Erickson, the psych-rock legend infamous for his long battle with mental health demons (he used to blare televisions and radios to block out the voices in his head), there’s always a sense of uncertainty. How long will he play? What shape will his voice and his guitar-playing be in? Will he be able to pull it off? Fortunately, the two times I’d previously been lucky enough to catch his one-time rare appearances, the answer to that last question had always been a resounding “yes,”- AGitReader.com
“Erickson, ex-frontman of the 13th Floor Elevators, performed songs from “True Love Cast Out All Evil,” his first CD of original material in 14 years. He looked like a happy hobo, smiled like Buddha and sang like kicked gravel.Performing once again, Erickson has reason to smile: More than for his former band’s 1966 hit, “You’re Gonna Miss Me,” Erickson, 62, is notorious for losing his mind.”- NY Post
“Roky Erickson makes the world a better place simply by existing and released his first new music since 1994’s All That May Do My Rhyme this April on ANTI-. He speaks now with Will Sheff of Okkervil River, who are his new backing band”- LA Record
“The first hour of the show was just fantastic, with Roky singing as well as I’ve heard him do since his return. He sounded clear and lucid, intense. Roky hit the stage with “Bo Diddley’s A Headhunter” and proved to be in great spirits and fine wailing form, while Jegar’s band turned out to be a superb, sympathetic support. Stomping versions of his seventies singles “Bermuda”, “The Interpreter” and “Two- Headed Dog (Red Temple Prayer)” had the spook, while the group showed its ability to go go quiet and haunting during a majestic “Splash 2”- The LA Beat, live review, March 2012.
