The 13th Floor Elevators - "You're Gonna Miss Me" (1966)

This mid-sixties Austin garage band, led by the legendary Roky Erickson and featuring the electrified jug playing of Tommy Hall, is pretty much ground zero for the psychedelic rock movement. But who came up with the idea of having them play a teeny-bopper pool party?


  1. Great song. I hated lip syncing back then, and now I wish bands would have held out and performed live.

  2. yah, never really did understand the concept of lip synching, especially if the band can actually play their instruments. I guess it can be attributed to the promotional nature of these performances
