May The Circle Remain Broken: Tribute To Roky Erickson

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Der Texaner Roky Erickson war einer der wahren, umwerfenden Pioniere der psychedelischen Musik. Als ursprünglicher Anführer der 1965 in Austin gegründeten 13th Floor Elevators erfanden Erickson und seine Band einen brandneuen Stil des Rock & Roll, einen, der leicht aus den Angeln gehoben war, während er den bewusstseinserweiternden Einfluss von LSD auf die Musik erforschte. Nach drei Jahren implodierte die Gruppe aufgrund psychischer und rechtlicher Probleme, was damit endete, dass Erickson für mehrere Jahre in das Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Rusk, Texas, eingewiesen wurde. Als er Anfang der 70er Jahre entlassen wurde, ging der Musiker weiter seinen eigenen Weg und nahm Songs auf, die ihm auf seinen weit verstreuten geistigen Wanderungen eingefallen waren. Erickson ist am 31. Mai 2019 verstorben. Mit dieser 12-Track-Hommage wird einer der originellsten Rocker aller Zeiten gefeiert. Mit dabei sind Lucinda Williams, Billy F Gibbons, The Black Angels, Margo Price, Mosshart Sexton (Alison Mosshart & Charlie Sexton), Neko Case, Mark Lanegan & Lynn Castle, Jeff Tweedy, Gary Clark Jr & Eve Monsees, Ty Segall, Chelsea Wolfe und Brogan Bentley. Die Songs reichen von Ericksons ikonischem Debüt "You're Gonna Miss Me", das aufgenommen wurde, als er in den frühen 60er Jahren in Austin zunächst Mitglied bei The Spades und dann bei den 13th Floor Elevators war, bis hin zu einigen von Ericksons späteren Songs wie "If You Have Ghosts", in dem er einige der äußeren Grenzen der menschlichen Psyche erkundete. Jede neue Aufnahme ist eine atemberaubende moderne Interpretation des Sounds, den Roky Erickson der Welt in einem halben Jahrhundert des Schreibens, Aufnehmens und Tourens gegeben hat. Dies ist wahrlich die Musik der Sphären, wie Erickson einst über seinen Sound sang, gesehen durch die Augen und Ohren derer, die in ihrer Liebe und ihrem Respekt für einen Menschen vereint sind, der sein Leben dem Rock & Roll gewidmet hat.


Texan Roky Erickson was one of the true mind-blowing pioneers of psychedelic music. The original leader of the Austin-based 13th Floor Elevators formed in 1965, Erickson and band invented a brand new style of rock & roll, one that was slightly unhinged while it explored the consciousness-expanding influence of LSD on music. After three years, the group imploded with mental issues and legal challenges, ending with Erickson being incarcerated for several years in the Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Rusk, Texas. When he was released in the early '70s the musician continued on his own trail, recording songs that had come to him in his far-flung cerebral wanderings. Erickson, who passed away May 31, 2019, is now celebrated on this 12-track tribute to one of the most original rockers ever.The participants range the whole world of modern music, and each chose one of Erickson's originals to stamp their own imprint on. They include Lucinda Williams, Billy F Gibbons, The Black Angels, Margo Price, Mosshart Sexton (Alison Mosshart & Charlie Sexton), Neko Case, Mark Lanegan & Lynn Castle, Jeff Tweedy, Gary Clark Jr & Eve Monsees, Ty Segall, Chelsea Wolfe, and Brogan Bentley. With the full support of the Roky Erickson estate, the album is produced by Bill Bentley, executive producer of the 1990 Roky Erickson tribute album Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye on Sire Records, with associate producers Matt Sullivan, co-founder/co-owner of Light in the Attic, and Wyatt Bentley.The songs range from Erickson's debut iconic original, "You're Gonna Miss Me, " recorded when he was a member first in The Spades and then the 13th Floor Elevators during the early '60s in Austin, to some of Erickson's later songs, like "If You Have Ghosts, " which heard him exploring some of the outer limits of the human psyche. Each new recording is a stunning modern take on the sound that Roky Erickson gave the world over a half-century of writing, recording and touring. No one has ever equaled those explorations.This truly is the music of the spheres, as Erickson once sang about his sound, as seen through the eyes and ears of those who are united in their love and respect for a person who dedicated his life to rock & roll. Roky Erickson, through the trials and tribulations of a man both imbued with greatness and haunted by darkness, never quit in his quest to share with others what he heard and saw. As he sang on the 13th Floor Elevators last recording, "May the circle remain unbroken."
