    Very enjoyable book with a laidback conversational feel to it that seems totally appropriate for its subject matter I'd previously read Drummond's book on the 13th Floor Elevators which Graham defers to though A Gathering of Promises adds to that project and isn't at all derivative Graham brings in so many other bands several that I'd never heard of and a few that I had but had never really gotten around to listening to like Shiva's Headband so one of the real joys has been building out a playlist of Texas psych nuggetsComing on the heels of my read of Rob Chapman's Psychedelia and Other Colours it's indeed shocking how much devastating psychedelics and other drugs like heroin particularly when interspersed with stints in prison or mental hospitals were on the minds and lives of the Texan musicians that make up what Graham calls the casualty list At the same time given the small record labels particularly the crazy bungling machinations of labels like International Artists and so on it's amazing how much the Texas psych scene arguably predated and influenced everything from punk to neo psychedelia to post punk to art rock and Anyway I wholeheartedly recommend this book if you're at all interested in psychedelic rock Texas music history or 60s garage bands and their aftermath

    I would say this is THE definitive book on the seminal Texas psychedelic garagepunk movement It seem to focus mainy of the 13th floor elevators but also manages to feed in a little about other Texas legends like Red Krayola Bubble Puppy Golden Dawn Moving Sidewalks and even Poor Janis Joplin I reckon it would have been even better if it included on the 80s and 90s bands like Butthole Surfers and Scratch Acidits essentially also about the Austin scene which when ypu look at it is a mecca for underground sounds these days

    Well researched book about the origin of psychedelic music in Texas An ugly beginning stemming from drugs that resulted in absolutely astounding music Screw Brian Wilson and his so called genius; Tommy Hall and Roky Erickson were the real thing Most of it was badly managed by record companies who had no idea what they were dealing with I grew up on this stuff although I never did drugs and was too young to attend the teen clubs where it was performed Still it moved me in ways where drugs were not necessary 13th Floor Elevators Fever Tree Moving Sidewalks Zakary Thaks and others They came and went with only Billy Gibbons finding real success The Moving Sidewalks played at my junior homecoming dance; Fun and Games at our prom For a while they were everywhere My only complaint is the chapters devoted to Janis Joplin She had nothing to do with psychedelic music and the time wasted on her could have been devoted to other significant bands As it says in the introduction the simple truth is that Texans just don't do things by half measures If they're going to rock they're going to rock hard; if they're going to drop acid they might just take enough acid to kill a buffalo And if they're going to make weird and freaky music then it's going to be the weirdest and freakiest music you ever heard in your life Interesting is the list of casualties left in its wake Moreso is the idea that from this music sprang the outlaw country movement still popular today the psychedelic movement had allowed a wild unprecedented freedom in which everything was up for grabs An all too brief freedom that could not sustain itself nor could the corporate record companies allow to exist A wonderful book that will probably interest no one who doesn't love this sort of stuff For me it's indelibly inscribed in my DNA code Like the Roky Erickson song says She lives in a time of her own So too does this music And there has never been any thing like it since
