The 13th Floor Elevators were an American rock band from Austin, Texas, formed by guitarist and vocalist Roky Erickson, electric jug player Tommy Hall, and guitarist Stacy Sutherland. The band was together from 1965 to 1969, and during that period released four albums and seven singles for the International Artists record label. Sutherland brought some of his own songs for a final set of studio sessions, which led to the dark, intense posthumous album Bull of the Woods. A few live gigs were played around Texas during the second half of 1968, until an article in Rolling Stone magazine in December 1968 declared the band gone.
While the 13th Floor Elevators' debut album caught them as they were still buzzing with the excitement of their musical journey through inner space and Easter Everywhere found them exploring the possibilities of the recording studio as well as their own creative process, their final studio set, 1969's Bull of the Woods, documented a band that was running out of gas. Legal problems were dogging the Elevators and preventing them from touring, they were justifiably unhappy with their record company, lead vocalist Roky Erickson was beginning to buckle under the group's steady diet . .
On Bull of the Woods, Stacy Sutherland took over most of the songwriting and vocals for the Elevators with amazing results. Stacy’s style mixes the bluesy with the transcendental, resulting in fuzzy cosmic honky-tonk jams that drip with the weird melancholy of a weary traveler to other dimensions. Til Then features some brilliant slide-guitar playing that outshines anything Sterling Morrison ever did for the Velvet Underground.
