Profile
The 13th Floor Elevators was an American rock band from Austin, Texas, formed by guitarist and vocalist Roky Erickson, electric jug player Tommy Hall, and guitarist Stacy Sutherland. The band was together from 1965 to 1969, and was one of the first groups to use the term "psychedelic rock" for their music. The band effectively broke up in 1968, though Sutherland used the name for a final 1969 album that featured only himself from the previous version of the group.
