the end of the ugly

I've been really appreciating them a lot more lately ever since I put on their debut last week.I went on youtube and found this cool doc about them and I thought more people would be interested to see it.
Easter Everywhere is their best album and a stone cold psychedelic classic. I especially love the trippy version of dylan's "its all over now baby blue" on the record.Its rumored Dylan considers it his favorite rendition.Either way its one of the best dylan covers I've ever heard
Discuss this greatly underrated psychedelic band and their electric jug
"I said I didnt mean to take up all your sweet time
Ill give it right back one of these days
If I dont meet you no more in this world then uh
Ill meet ya on the next one
And dont be late "
...And me just another dream theory, lost inside your eye
"when my mind's uncertain my body decides
what it will do to get through the hell of the night
as I trip on the ocean that leads through your eyes
well my eyes can't wait til they finally see through you"

Documentary about rock n roll pioneer Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson, whose band the 13th Floor Elevators coined the term "psychedelic rock" in the 60's. Struggling with drug abuse and schizophrenia, he spent 3 years in Rusk State Hospital after pleading insanity on marijuana charges. His new band, Roky Erickson and the Aliens managed to stay vital during the 70's with a darker and more aggressive rock sound. After losing interest in music, he became a recluse, living in poverty and filth. The movie details the rise and fall of Roky Erickson and his brothers struggle to get Rokys life back on track.
This is why I like blogging; you can post absolutely dire stuff for ages, get negative comments and people hating your take on some random band or other, and then one day: BOOM. You post some DYNAMITE shit like this and suddenly you're back in favour again, TF is hooking you up, random recordlabels from Tokyo is sending you albums to upload, and the MySpace site is buzzing with spam. What a summer hey? Today it is raining and I just woke up.
