Creature With The Atom Brain: The Return Of Roky Erickson

If you fear I’ll lose my spirits,
like a drunkard’s wasted wine,
don’t you even think about it,
I’m feelin’ fine
(Roky Erickson, I Had To Tell You)

Roky Erickson’s music holds up better than any other music from that period. The songs are concise and terrifying in their power.

Peter Buck, R.E.M.

Roky Erickson is one of few artists who transcended the time from hippie era to punk rock. He is still so modern.
