anyone going to sxsw should not miss the chance to see roy head! I've seen him 3 times (all great) and the first time his son came out and sang with him for a little while, it was pretty impressive. I had heard Sundance was going to be on American Idol a few months ago, I know some of the guys in Roy's backing band (Allen Oldies Band / El-Orbits guys, actually check out Allen Oldies band at sxsw too) and they had mentioned it. About 2 years ago we asked Roy to do a 7" covering Nervous Eaters "Just Head" and Flamin Groovies "Teenage Head" but he had just signed a contract to do a record with the label that did the recent jerry Lee Lewis duets album and it got put off for a while. That label blew all their money on the Jerry Lee Lewis cd so Roy's sort of in limbo right now, but we're still trying to get him to do it. It is supposed to be those songs plus "Sugar Bee" by Sir Douglas Quintet and "Dont Think i Will" by Young Jessie. Anyway he still puts on a crazy show (mostly wild microphone throwing tricks these days but still dances pretty wild) and I am sure he'll be at sxsw again this year.
