Stomach flu has kept me in bed all day and made my hair look crazy. Oh yea, it’s also turned my mouth into a fountain. Still can’t really keep anything down. I demand your sympathy. It will invigorate me.

“Roky Erickson, Austin Opry House, 1977. I’ve known Roky since 1972. I don’t have room here to discuss all that should be said about him. He’s been called the father of psychedelic rock, and punk rock. His first real band, The 13th Floor Elevators, changed the arc of music everywhere with their influential albums from 1965, especially “Easter Everywhere”. Roky had, and still largely has, the most amazing voice. Perfect for rock music. If it wasn’t for the mental issues he’s dealt with since his exposure to the medieval methods employed to treat mental illness in the late ’60s, (shock treatments, etc) who knows how different his career might have been. In any case, the folks in Austin love and respect him. Here, he’s looking pretty good. He is a genius, no doubt.” — Photo © copyright 1977 Scott Newton

Currently on record player. Often overlooked, Embrace’s only album is one of my all time favorites. Featuring a post-Minor Threat, pre-Fugazi Ian MacKaye on vocals, this self titled album is quintessential “Revolution Summer” era Washington DC hardcore. You need this. On red vinyl.
