Today it's the Official Halloween or Hallowe'en (a contraction of Hallows' Even or Hallows' Evening), also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
What would be more psychedelic than the legendary Roky Erickson a day like this, a tune about the unseen. Here, his haunted mind is let loose, perhaps literally. Psychedelic frontiersman, former lead singer/rhythm guitarist of THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR ELEVATORS.
Today's tune "If You Have Ghosts", taken from the album "The Evil One" (Plus One) with his '80s group, THE ALIENS: Duane Aslaksen, Billy Miller, Jeff Sutton or Fuzzy Furioso, and Steven Morgan Burgess. Here is Roky Erickson with the Mystic Knights of the Sea perform at the Roky Erickson birthday celebration at La Zona Rosa in Austin, Texas. Charlie Sexton (guitar), John X Reed (guitar), Alvin Crow (violin), Speedy Sparks (bass) and Mike Buck (drums).
