13th Floor Elevators 1984 Reunion Video

Bootlegged Audio from this has been floating around for years, known as ‘The Reunion’. This was a brief attempt by Roky , John ‘Ike’ Walton and bassist Ronnie Leatherman with guitarist Greg Forrest to resurrect the band. This was without Stacey Sutherland and Tommy Hall and there were a few Roky solo songs in the set as well. With Roky in top form, these 4 clips, though not quite a Holy Grail as far as Elevators footage, are still a very important document of this still legendary group. Roky has also recently performed sets of all Elevators material, which is a testament to the strength of the music, and it’s timelessness. It’s also pretty interesting to imagine how this material came across in 1984, at the height of MTV and pop culture!

Texas Psych write up from a few years ago

Roky Erickson Great American Music Hall – 3/3/12 Review

Roky Erickson GAMHA couple of years ago I wrote a somewhat lengthy facebook post right after attending this show and the guy over at the Texas Psych Blog asked if he could post it (link to the original post above).

Roky fans will know his shows can be hit or miss and this one wasn’t his best, but we take the bad with the good, the crowd reactions were interesting and inspired me to write about it, So there you go!

If you dig 60’s psychedelic rock and especially Texas Psych, go cruise around this blog!
