Gremlins Have Pictures
Celebrating a creative purple patch by a singular performer, Light In The Attic reissues the three albums issued by Roky Erickson in the 1980s. Together, theyre a chance to pick up a missing jigsaw piece in the history of American rock n roll in deluxe packages! The Evil One (LITA 097) broke him out of the indie underground and Dont Slander Me showed off his rock n roll sensibilities. But Erickson was difficult to manage - and patience was running out. "Id given up after the second album," Ericksons then-manager, Craig Luckin, has said. "I had enough." Yet a third album - arguably his best - was to be found, if not created. Gremlins Have Pictures is an anthology of Ericksons solo work following his extended incarceration at the Rusk State Hospital for the criminally insane, beginning with his first live performance (opening for a screening of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Austin) all the way to Dont Slander Me (LITA 098).
