Song of the Day: The 13th Floor Elevators – “You’re Gonna Miss Me”

Happy birthday to Roky Erickson, who turns 69 years old today. If there was ever a psychedelic band to know, it has to be The 13th Floor Elevators, who were co-founded by Erickson. They’re often thought to have been credited as one of the first psychedelic bands in rock n’ roll history. The 13th Floor Elevators have been sited by many artists today as an influence: ZZ Top, The Black Angels, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream, and Spaceman 3 to name a few.

“You’re Gonna Miss Me” a psychedelic, garage tour-de-force that takes Roky Erickson’s wail and guitar to rocking levels. Plus, how many bands do you know with an electric jug player? It’s fun all around and worth rocking out to. Enjoy those psychedelic sounds Rocknuts.
