  1. SWEET

    the reason there's no Dukes of Strat is that they were 2nd wave pseudo-psych

  2. 1) this is totally awesome
    2) I am bragging when I say I once interviewed Roky Erickson of The 13th Floor Elevators for The Daily Texan. He was cool. He sang me a song a capella.

  3. OH YEAH ok. i always forget they weren't really a psychedelic 60s band
    you're welcome!

  4. nice tunes. i got em all and we play them at food shark at lunch now here in marfa

  5. AWESOME post! Thanks so much!
