Albumrecensie

This brief platter was originally released as a 7" EP in 1977 by Sponge Records; thus, it contains some of Erickson's earliest attempts at a solo career after the demise of his 1960s group 13th Floor Elevators. The first three songs here would be released in more professional-sounding versions on Roky Erickson and the Aliens and The Evil One. Listening to this re-release is a very frustrating experience. One the one hand, the performances here are extremely compelling, with the stripped-dowm, gutsy feel of punk and garage band styles. The title track gets a committed rendition that underscores the song's frightening excellence. "Mine Mine Mind" is a fine uptempo rocker strongly hinting at Erickson's mid-1960s psychedelic roots. "Click Your Fingers Applauding the Play" is a worthy, funky midtempo number. And "I Have Always Been Here Before" is a ringingly memorable selection presented most effectively in singer-songwriter fashion. On the other hand, shockingly primitive production values, featuring badly distorted sound, make this record almost unlistenable.

Born Roger Kynard Erickson on July 15, 1947, in Dallas, TX, he began playing the piano at age five; by age 12, he had also taken up the guitar. The child of an architect and would-be opera singer, Erickson dropped...
