    I would say this is THE definitive book on the seminal Texas psychedelic garage punk movement It seem to focus main,y of the 13th floor elevators, but also manages to feed in a little about other Texas legends like Red Krayola, Bubble Puppy, Golden Dawn, Moving Sidewalks and even Poor Janis Joplin I reckon it would have been even better if it included on the 80s and 90s, bands like Butthole Surfers and Scratch Acid..its essentially also about the Austin scene, which when ypu look at it is a mecca for underground sounds these days.

    Well researched book about the origin of psychedelic music in Texas An ugly beginning, stemming from drugs, that resulted in absolutely astounding music Screw Brian Wilson and his so called genius Tommy Hall and Roky Erickson were the real thing Most of it was badly managed by record companies who had no idea what they were dealing with I grew up on this stuff although I never did drugs and was too young to attend the teen clubs where it was performed Still it moved me in ways where drugs were not necessary 13th Floor Elevators, Fever Tree, Moving Sidewalks, Zakary Thaks, and others They came and went with only Billy Gibbons finding real success The Moving Sidewalks played at my junior homecoming dance Fun and Games at our prom For a while they were everywhere My only complaint is the chapters devoted to Janis Joplin She had nothing to do with psychedelic music and the time wasted on her could have been devoted to other significant bands As it says in the introduction, the simple truth is that Texans just don t do things by half measures If they re going to rock, they re going to rock hard if they re going to drop acid, they might just take enough acid to kill a buffalo And if they re going to make weird and freaky music, then it s going to be the weirdest and freakiest music you ever heard in your life Interesting is the list of casualties left in its wake Moreso is the idea that from this music sprang the outlaw country movement still popular today the psychedelic movement had allowed a wild, unprecedented freedom in which everything was up for grabs An all too brief freedom that could not sustain itself, nor could the corporate record companies allow to exist A wonderful book that will probably interest no one who doesn t love this sort of stuff For me, it s indelibly inscribed in my DNA code Like the Roky Erickson song says, She lives in a time of her own So too does this music And there has never been any thing like it since.
