So glad I got to see Roky (at Metallica's Orion Festival in Atlantic City, of all places).

Hello Joe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm tim from champaign:

The first time my daughter responded to music when she was about 7 months old was to You're Gonna Miss Me. She started flapping her arms, then bouncing up and down when the song started. I thought it was about the most appropriate way to respond to a Roky song.
  12:13pm Rory:

I never had the bloody hammer!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm Rich in Washington:

This is ripping!
  12:13pm holland oats:

Bloody Hammer is always a hard song to listen to. This version fucking rips though. Thanks, Joe!
  12:15pm frenchee:

I've been waiting for the Belock Roky Erickson tribute! ToT's set was good too. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Rich in Washington:

I think one of my earliest music on the radio memories was hearing 13th Floor Elevators' Fire Engine as a very young kid and it made a huge impression - the sung siren sounds, the weird warbly jug sound (I had no idea what made that sound until many, many years later).
  12:16pm Rory:

It’s times like these lucifer I see are infinite
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:16pm Jmcgreivey:

Joe McGasko reminded me (by playing the Southwest FOB) of the Texas Twisted comp I have, with 10 nicely recorded live Elevators tracks (better-sounding than the International Artists CD of the first album, for sure).
Avatar 12:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

'Fire Engine' is about DMT - in 1966. It's incredible.
  12:19pm Rory:

Btw I can literally relate to Don’t Shake Me Lucifer, no joke :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:20pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow, RR1163! I had no idea!
Avatar 12:22pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

The Elevators' code (except the drummer - & according to book 'Eye Mind') was to not play or record unless Tripping. In mid1960s Texas. The freaking GratefulDead were incredulous. Then Roky represents a kind of purgatory & resurrection back into active relevance that compares in one sense to Brian Wilson's - & in another - is kind of w/out comparison @ all.
@Rich: 'Take you to "DMT" place in my - fire engine'...
  12:23pm holland oats:

"the empty," no?
Avatar 12:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

DMT/the empty...
  12:24pm frenchee:

LOL, RRNov63: "the Grateful Dead were incredulous"
Avatar 12:24pm Chrissy of The Heights:

@Rory: Me too on DSML! For the longest time I thought the lyrics were "I been up all night and no suicide clogged the works" and thought yeah...I can relate...sleep deprivation makes you wanna die sometimes...
  12:25pm holland oats:

that's your interpretation, or is a band member quoted talking about it? i don't remember that in the 'eye mind' book
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:27pm Matt Fiveash:

Holy fuck, this is scorching!
Avatar 12:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

There were very early Psychedelic researches @ the University in Austin...a bit like Ken Kesey's experience..
Roky was committed to the insane asylum w/ no hope of release for some time! There's your Horror film...
@holland: I just read 'Eye Mind' about it, really...it's been much discussed...
  12:27pm Woo:

1st time I heard the Elevators was when I bought a copy of Nuggets in the cutout bin in the 70s. That purchase had some last effect.
Avatar 12:27pm Joe B:

while i love every version of the iwnd and more, this is the best version, despite the crappy audio because i forgot my copy at home!

Joe: thanks so much for bringing Roky to Monty Hall, and also for broadcasting that show. We owe you one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm Dano59:

Love this one ... and the monster songs of course. I got the Pysch Sounds picture disc this year and am playing it endlessly.
  12:31pm holland oats:

caught one of his last (maybe last) maxwell's shows, so great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm Rich in Washington:

Roky's voice is like a Les Paul overcranked out of a Pignose amp. Bad quality recordings of him don't detract from it one bit.
Avatar 12:33pm Joe B:

last show at maxwells was november 2012 if i'm not mistaken
  12:33pm holland oats:

sounds about right
Avatar 12:33pm Carmichael:

Heya Joe and Roky. Texas is a good place to be FROM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:34pm Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

This set is smoking, bubbling and about to boil over! Watch out!
  12:34pm Esther Crow:

yeah Joe! spinning the best of ROKY! can't wait for VV!!!!!
Avatar 12:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...much later Julian Cope reinforced it...
In Garage - Texas has a special place. Scenes are Darwinian: Has to be enuff activity to sustain it - but isolated enuff to be itself apart... 'Eye Mind' makes point it was kind of the 'Third Coast' - & - like w/ Chet Helms & Janis - a Texas-SanFrancisco interaction... 'Eye Mind' calls it a classic case there & then of Avant-garde & Old Guard - & only a bit later the 'Cosmic Cowboys' come about...such rapid change from like 1966 to '69. The Elevators' still not recognized for their achievement & dues. Iggy for one says he thinks of them often when people rhapsodize about the Stooges...The recording quality in one sense is classic Garage LoFi - but then again - a gawdamn shame...

Avatar 1:45pm KP in DC:

When I saw Jeff with the Woggles he was playing an old hollow body electric that looked weird and familiar. I had just seen the Pretty Things in London and it occurred that Phil Taylor had used the same model. It was, I think, a Harmony Stratotone, right out of 1963.

Joe made me get out my Billy Bragg and Outrageous Cherry records this morning. Now you're making me get out my Man or Astroman records. But I can't listen to them until tomorrow because I have to listen to the rest of your show, and then I have to listen to Scott's show. Well, and Jim Price, of course.

Going to have to see if I can find my Guadalcanal Diary vinyl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm tim from champaign:

Cool. I've never actually heard Guadalcanal Diary. I remember being a young teen in the mid 80s and looking at the charts in the back of Rolling Stone. I remember being intrigued by the college rock charts because of evocative band names like Guadalcanal Diary.

Avatar 2:44pm David Shortell:

I was completely uninformed about both "Man or Astro-Man?" and the Woggles when I decided to take a blind gamble by attending their 1993 show at Maxwell's (It's strange that MOAM were not headlining!). The opening act were called Date Bait. i never heard from them again.
