For the third week of Rock Month, Hunter picks the psychedelic world of late Texas rock n' roll legend Roky Erickson, from his sixties group, The 13th Floor Elevators, to his erratic, UHF and schizophrenia-inspired solo career from the eighties, to 2010.

If you've never been introduced to Roky's crazy world, you're in for a treat. Also, we recommend the documentary on Erickson's troubled life and career, "You're Gonna Miss Me", it's a must see!
