Roky Erickson was very much a changed man when he re-emerged on the music scene in the late '70s after a deeply troubling stay in a mental institution following an arrest for drugs As Good As It Gets - The Varukers - The Damnation Of Our Species The graceful but energetic proto-psychedelia of Erickson 's music with the 13th Floor Elevators was replaced by a hot-wired straight-ahead rock sound which suggested an updated version of the teenaged garage pounders Roky recorded with his early group the Spadesand the charming psychobabble of Tommy Hall 's lyrics with the Elevators gave way to twisted narratives documenting Its Alright, Its OK (Radio Edit) - Primal Scream - Its Alright, Its OK 's obsessive enthusiasm for cheezoid horror movies of the s.
It wasn't until that Erickson released his first solo album, and that disc has had a rather eventful history. The British and American releases featured different track lineups, and each version featured songs which didn't show up on the other; to complicate matters all the more, early versions of three of the songs were released on a small-label EP in France.
His band, the Aliensare in sharp, precise form; Erickson 's vocals confirm he's a blues-rock belter of the first order even when he's raving about creatures with atom brains, two-headed dogs, or the Evil One himself Dusky Feat.
Solomon Grey - Long Wait, and if the songs are a bit odd lyrically which you would expect from the titlesthe tunes are clever and punchy and rock on out. While the serene and evocative folk-rock of All That May Do My Rhyme represents Roky Erickson 's strongest solo work, The Evil One shows just how strong a rocker he could be -- and how good a band he could put together.
