The Psychedelic Sounds of Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators... a staple around here for years... often imitated, but never replicated... the Austin, Texas godfathers of fuzz are as important to the underground as the later heavyweights Zep, Sabbath, and the MC5.
So we're hoping this Roky t-shirt does justice to be as trippy as the sound the Elevators made... full of twists and turns and the ever-expanding 3rd eye... there's no doubt Roky certainly tapped his, he went all the way through that door of perception... taking the basic blues and turning it inside out... taking the psychedelics drugs and turning. it. Inside. out!
Roky kept a low profile his entire career... but his legend continues to grow like the tree of life he's permanently entwined with... The Elevators are at the root of some of today's finest psych rock (The Black Angels, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Brian Jonestown Massacre)... so swing on this tree, it'll take you places you've never been!
