Psychedelic Punks Refuse to Die: The Revenge of the 13th Floor Elevators

Metal Mike Saunders, unpublished, 1972

2009 note: The odd thing about this (unpublished) fall 1972 thing sent to Phonograph Record Monthly (unassigned) is that co-editor Greg Shaw would – I am guessing – have run it straight in. Someone not giving a flying F about the 13th Floor Elevators would definitely be a Marty [Cerf] thing ("we already ran a huge Nuggets review by Ed Ward, why the hell would we take space away from the Hollywood gossip column in the front section?"). –– MS
