The Music Hall
The Words & the Music

For nearly a decade, a dedicated group of fans have collected rare live and unreleased studio recordings, out-of-print album releases and -- perhaps most importantly -- conducted interviews with the makers of what we are calling Texas Psych Rock.

The Music Hall is the forum where some of this material will be shared with the fans. In particular, we will be posting downloadable or streaming versions of the revelatory interviews that the fans have conducted. Originally released as part of the free series known as the Roky Erickson CD Club, these recordings will continue to be free for all to enjoy.

The dividing line between pre-history and history is the written word, or in this case, the spoken word, preserved for posterity. We hope you enjoy.
