What a difficult life he had. His last studio album, True Love Cast Out All Evil, is superb.


Popped over to the US to see the 13th Floor Elevators a few years back on the basis I couldn’t see them making it to the UK. A very wise decision and a weirdly great night. I trust you’ve all seen the Roky film?

Shame love the Elevators.

Thanks for flagging this @TheKevster I’ll have to pull out some 13th Floor in memoriam. Thanks for all the music Roky R.I.P.

Very Sad. My phone ring tone is you’re gonna miss me. Elevators were a great band.

Also did a kick-ass version of Heroin.

Very sad, I have 13th Floor Elevators’ early albums, which I discovered through the Nuggets set. Highly innovative and as good to listen to today as ever.

I have to admit to knowing little about Roky but this seems a good Tidal playlist which I’m thoroughly enjoying.
