Music Monday: The Spades – “You’re Gonna Miss Me”

posted November 3, 2014 8:50 am

Roky Erickson’s first notable band, The Spades, released this track in 1965, but it isn’t as wild as the version he later recorded with the 13th Floor Elevators.

Coming from Texas, The Spades were less conventional than the garage music coming out of the northwest. More dreamy, more druggy guitar, and more upset about his girl than most: “I gave you the warning / But you never heeded it / How can you say you miss my loving / When you never needed it?”
