13th Floor Elevators – You’re Gonna Miss Me

David brought up the subject of these guys and Lew dug up this rough but potent old video on this Austin band in the ’60s:

(Backup is a lot like “G-L_O_R_I_A Gloria…”)

It’s had over 800,000 views. If you watch this full-screen it’s like a liquid black and white movie — pretty striking. Actually like a B&w light show…

More music du jour: Lucinda Williams and Dan Penn doing “Dedicated to the One I Love,” and Stevie Winwood doing “Thirty Second Lover” on a kick-ass album, just out: Dedicated – Steve Cropper – Salute to the 5 Royales

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. My favorite band… Amazing to see you mention them (on one of my favorite blogs). The band's biography book "Eye Mind" is well worth a read. An amazing collection of tales.
