Before the "Who are The 13th Floor Elevators" cold voters come out to play I must point out that the next cheapest is £14.00. Actually thought this was a misprice as this NEVER drops below £14; but it went into the basket and I've got one at this price. Enjoy Elevator fans. And the 13th Floor Elevators are the greatest psychedelic garage band of all time (IMO). Free Roky Erickson!!

Led by the inimitable Roky Erickson, the 13th Floor Elevators not only defined the acid-tinged sound of 1960s American garage music, they established a precedent for wild, unhinged Texas rock as well. Erickson's powerful vocals and trippy lyrics mixed perfectly with the band's blend of gritty R&B and psychedelic swirls. Add to that what is perhaps rock & roll's only electric jug player and you have the ingredients for a truly legendary band. Sadly, Erickson was placed in a mental institution after a 1969 drug bust. His exposure to electroshock therapy there ended both the band and Erikson's chances for a normal existence. Roky soldiered on, though, and released a string of albums during the '70, '80s, and '90s that were simultaneously beautiful and terrifying.
