Roky Erickson and the Aliens – The Evil One

Music

Rocky Erickson and the Aliens, The Evil One, 415 Records, A-0005, 1981. I’ve got this one on eBay right now.

Roky Erickson is a very interesting character. He’s been in and out of mental institutions and there’s a documentary on Netflix called You’re Gonna Miss Me that’s all about his family squabbles over him. Unfortunately it’s not about the music. He was in The 13th Floor Elevators, an Austin band in the 1960s that was the first band to use the word “Psychedelic” on an album.
