Lunatics At The Edge Of The World

The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators | Discogs

While listening to a lot of new psychedelic music especially from Scandinavia in these days I remembered the pioneers of this genre. The 13th Floor Elevators were active from 1965 until 1969 and led by Roky Erikson who passed away almost one year ago. The Elevator's sound was dominated by using two guitars and including a lot of reverb and echo into their music. As far as I know they were one of the first bands calling their music psychedelic rock. And if somebody can take up this for itself, then this band. Their first album is still an all time favorite of mine and you can listen to their legacy by Spacemen 3, Primal Scream or Echo and The Bunnymen.
