JukeFox Journey! No.2 – Leonardo Ulloa chooses the 13th Floor Elevators

It’s been a tough season for Leo Ulloa. “It can be hard to maintain concentration on the bench” he confides. “You need to be prepared to come on at a minutes notice but your body just can’t keep up the necessary adrenalin levels when you’re sitting on the sidelines. Still, firemen have to do it every day” he admits stoically.
No surprise then to learn that psychotic Austin scenesters the 13th Floor Elevators form an integral part in Leo’s warming up routine. “Nothing you’ve heard before quite prepares you for Tommy Hall’s jug sound, does it? ” queries Leo with just a slight hint of a threat in his rich baritone.

Right with you on that one Leo.

    • I’ve heard, but never had it confirmed, that they did a live album which was simply the best of the first two albums with the sound of the crowd from the Beatles at Shea Stadium plastered over the top. Psychedelic indeed.
