This footage is from that “1991: the year punk broke (SIC)” movie. This is my favorite song to play drums to on Rock Band II- what a funny world we live in.

Roky Erickson’s apartment

Posted in american heroes, American music, lost souls, movies, playlist on July 31, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

One of the most chilling scenes in an endless stream of chilling scenes in “You’re Gonna Miss Me”, the 2005 documentary about psychedelia’s mad professor 13th Floor Elevators’ Roky Erickson, is when the viewer is given a guided tour of Roky’s apartment. This cachophonous interlude gets at the core of schizophrenia as Roky automatically goes through an obviously familiar routine of creating noise with every available appliance in his dingy apartment to drown out whatever voices torment him. Truly heartbreaking. Add that doc to your queue right now.
