Roky Erickson - Dont Knock The Rok 12 inch
Out of Stock
Dont Knock the Rok! captures the special magic of rehearsing with former 13th Floor Elevators visionary Roky Erickson as he and backing band the Aliens prepped for his album The Evil One. Apparently, Erickson enjoyed indulging in the sonic comfort food of classic oldies, and in between rave-ups on tunes like "Cant Be Brought Down," "Things That Go Bump in the Night," and "You Drive Me Crazy" (no small statement, that), he leads his band through somewhat shambolic covers of everything from "Stand By Me" and "Love Is Strange" to a handful of songs from fellow Texas legend Buddy Holly.
