If I knew how to post a link I would have.
Damn. (Although I must admit I thought he was already dead)
Didn't know anything about Roki Erickson until I read a bio about him and and heard Two Headed Dog with the Aliens 30+- years ago. RIP.
A friend loaned me a cassette that was a tribute to Erikson some years back with covers of his songs. The music was good, but much like when I first saw some Van Gogh paintings close up, in person, the lyrics made me think "That boy's not right". Not a criticism of Erikson. More a reflection of how messed up his hospitalization made him. Damn shame.
Came across 13th Floor Elevators tracking down that real strange tune from season 1 of True Detective.
Was not aware of his history, sad but I guess he's been leaving us for quite some time.
