- ROKY ERICKSON
RIP a raging demon by Alan Crandall
"Even assuming the lyrics could be understood; the usual problem of deciphering rock lyrics was exacerbated by the fact that Erickson's phraseology was so completely bizarre. At the same time, in the great tradition of rock and roll, a phrase would leap out of the mix and catch your ear good and hard. I'm not sure to this day what "her body just blows messiah" is supposed to mean, but damn, it sounds good. What was more important was the fact that Erickson screamed these words with absolute, complete conviction and passion that put, say, Joe Strummer, to shame. Whatever it was he was trying to communicate here, he damn well meant it."
