See Hear Podcast Episode 16 - You’re Gonna Miss Me: The Roky Erickson Story

April 27, 2015 @ 12:56 am

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.

See Hear Podcast Episode 14 - Grace of my Heart

Time for another episode of See Hear podcast - episode 14 to be precise.

Miss Wendi has picked the film for discussion this time. She has selected the Alison Anders directed film from 1997, Grace of My Heart starring Ileana Douglas, Eric Stoltz, Matt Dillon and the always awesome John Turturro. It covers about 12 years in the life of Edna Buxton who has a dream to be a singer and a songwriter in a period when you were one or the other but not both. The film follows her ambitions, disappointments, love life, and song writing ambitions against the backdrop of the Sixties. While the film is fictitious, its characters are based on real life people like Carole King, Brian Wilson, (the late) Lesley Gore, and Phil Spector. The songs specially written for the film come from Joni Mitchell, Redd Kross and most famously Burt Bacharach & Elvis Costello.

The team had a great time discussing the fashions, the hairstyles, the songs, the philandering, whether Carole King married Brian Wilson in an alternate reality, and whether we actually enjoyed the film. Download to hear our thoughts.
