Man I'm fucked up this morning. What the hell is that wobbling sound and how is it made on 13th Floor Elevators songs? "You're gonna wake up wondering, find yourself all alone..."

Last night I seriously had a nightmare where Chris Alienator was in jail and when he got out he came after me with a knife and was trying to kill me. Then he changed into my friend Stacy, who was also trying to kill me. It was scary.

that sound was made by the bands "organic advisor" blowing into a jug.

You mean "the electric jug?"

I tried to figure out what it was about 5 years ago (via the Internet). I got a really long winded reply from one of the guys in Bro. Jt's Vibrolux about how it was a real jug or something. It changes tones and they credit someguy with actually playing it but nobody seems to know what it is... Some sort of oscillator or something?

I mean c'mon, that doesn't really sound like what happens when I blow into a jug. Maybe I need to use more tongue.

check out http://www.watchmeeatahotdog.com/etc/elevators.mp3 to hear them talk about the jug.

that was one of those situations where they wanted to give their drug dealer a job in the band and he couldn't play anything worth mentioning(i.e, the jug).

I had a dream the other night that involved sneaking kegs of beer on to dry college campuses by attaching thousands of helium balloons to myself and the keg. It was the best dream ever because it contained three of the greatest dream scenarios: flying, beer, and being a hero. Oh yeah, according the the dream, chicks just love guys who fly through the air and bring them beer.

on that Elevators live-on-TV album, he does a few demo-runs on the jug, and he's basically singing into it, with the mike run through a reverb amp....you can also see him lip-synch the jug on that clip of the Elevators on American Bandstand.

Argh, you your real name Debby? Two nights ago I woke up screaming for some girl named Debby...I'm guessing I was either horney or hungry...Little Debbies taste good yo.

I'd like to meat your friend Stacy.

Tommy Hall wrote a lot of the lyrics, too.
I mean, besides playing the jug.
On the "Epitaph for a Legend" International Artists comp, there is an interview with Lelan Rogers in which he explains that the band carried their stash in the jug and that the pitch it made often depended on how fucked up the guys were.
Fuckin love the elevators!

Not only did he play jug but he's the only guy in the band with as many songwriting credits as Roky. I like to imagine him writing songs on the jug and then explaining it to the other members. "See it goes like budda-budda-budda".

Man that jug player sounds like Gabe beatboxing over Mahjongg.
