i like what i've heard
they've got a psychedelic side, but i really like how it's held down with a garage-y rumble.
i should buy some, i reckon.

I just found out about them from one of my friends. Weren't they one of the first underground psychedelic bands of the late 60's? The only album I heard from them was a live recording.
indeed, get a hold of the "Psychedelic Sounds Of" its epic

Easter Everywhere is better.
Easter Everywhere is really where Erickson began to lose his mind. Just a quintessential psych album if there ever was one.
Not to take anything away from Psychedelic Sounds Of...but EE is a beastly collection of songs.

I agree with those that said Easter Everywhere is better. Slip Inside This House is a psychedelic classic.
His debut solo album is great too, well worth a listen. It can be found below :) vvv

Side note: I actually met Roky Erickson yesterday at a used bookstore. (!!!)
I swore it was him meticulously perusing the horror section so I inched over to make sure he wasn't just any awesomely grizzlied out dude. He dropped a book that rolled over onto my foot (which was like the perfect chance to know for sure). I handed it back to him he said something like "you're good at that!" which means absolutely NOTHING which means it had to be that psyched out warlord so I inquired with an "aren't yooooou....?"
And he smiled and introduced himself and shook my hand. We talked a little about H.P. Lovecraft and afterwards told me it was nice to meet me and he'd see me later* (which is a fucking cool thing to say btw so take note future warlords) and then he made his way to suspense/thriller. I jizzed all over Stephan King as I stared at the back of his North Face windbreaker. I could hear the rustling of that jacket making its way throughout the store like a singing bowl reverberating in the temple of my soul.
"Goodbye sweet dreams..." I whispered.
Most of that happened.
