Roger Kynard "Roky" Erickson (July 15, 1947 – May 31, 2019) was an American musician and singer-songwriter. He was a founding member of the 13th Floor Elevators and a pioneer of the psychedelic rock genre. Born in Dallas, Texas, Erickson was interested in music from his youth, playing piano from age five and taking up guitar at 10. He attended school in Austin and dropped out of Travis High School in 1965, one month before graduating, rather than cut his hair to conform to the school dress code

Roky Erickson was already a psychedelic cultural icon by the time he got busted with his band mates in Austin Texas with some joints in 1969. Nowadays, he would be sent away with a warning or a small ticket, but in 1969 in Texas, it was a huge deal. The Texas law enforcement agency were after the 13th Floor Elevators for quite a while due to their reputation as users of drugs. They released 3 genre defining albums from 1966-1969 with the best of them being Easter Everywhere which at least in my book is a 5 all day. After a great run in San Francisco they decided to make their way home to Texas, where the police were waiting for them. They were busted with small amounts of pot, which at the time was a federal crime and carried with it a long prison stay. Roky’s lawyers thought it would be a good idea to go with an insanity plea, that was a huge mistake.
Like Syd Barrett and Robyn Hitchcock, Roky Erickson is one of rock & roll's genuine crazies, and this album does nothing to dispel that image. Musically, the album is quite appealing.
