Archive for April 2015

It’s taken a little longer than anticipated, but still within the confines of April, we bring you episode 16 of See Hear Podcast. On this episode, Bernie, Tim and Maurice cover the first of our listener requests for 2015 (Wendi was at a Wolf Cop fan convention).

 James Curley requested we discuss the 2005 released documentary “You’re Gonna Miss Me: The Roky Erickson Story”. Roky was most famously the amazing lead singer for The 13th Floor Elevators.  He spent time in and out of institutions with dangerous people. He suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, but was treated poorly at the hands of the doctors in the Austin State Hospital and Rusk Institution receiving EST for a misdiagnosed condition.

The film is a fly on the wall account of his life, and documents the custody battle between his brother Sumner and their mother to look after him following his departure from the hospitals. He is definitely a damaged soul, but his family is full of delicate individuals. In the end, though, the film contains hope and is not as bleak in the end as it could have been. We had a really interesting discussion about mental health, musical brilliance, and fragility. Please join us. Once again, our thanks to James for suggesting this film.

If you dig what we do, could you please rate us at iTunes or even better, spread the word that the show exists so more folks can tune in.
