WE'RE GONNA MISS YOU: An Aussie Tribute to Roky Erickson & The 13th Floor Elevators

Roger ‘Roky’ Erickson is often heralded as one of the most influential psychedelic musicians that ever lived. Despite leaving his earthly incarnation just last year, echoes of his creations, particularly his work with 60’s Austin rockers The 13th Floor Elevators, are certainly alive and well today.

His story wasn’t without its darker shades. Caught between a revolution, the correctional system and his own battles with mental health, Roky spent years subject to electrotherapy and the debilitating side effects of treatment drugs like thorazine, before his creative spirit (alongside help from the very musicians he influenced) summoned him back to the stage.

Sydney-based producer Dan Frizza approached Rick Snowden and Josh White from Third Eye Stimuli Records during 2019 and together, they carefully curated a slew of exciting rock acts including Rosa Maria, Buried Feather, Turtle Skull, The Jim Mitchells, Jak Housden (The Whitlams), Misty Lanes, Luke Spook, Pseudo Mind Hive, Charlie Gradon, The Flamingo Jones and Joe Ghatt (NZ).
