Roky and the Aliens - 1/30/76 Handbill

roky and the aliens

Check out this original Captain Colourz designed handbill for a 1/30/76 Concert at the Longbranch in California featuring a concert by Roky and the Aliens along with Ruby featuring Tom Fogerty from Creedence Clearwater Revival. The handbill measures approx. 8.5 x 11 and is in beautiful near mint condition and signed by Roky Erickson.

The great Roky CD Club put out a recording of this concert. It's from an audience tape. The best part of this tape is that Billy Alienate isn't on it. This recording was prior to him joining up with Roky.

Billy wrecked a lot of good shows with his noise and fighting Roky for the lead. Imagine that! Scrawny Billy Alienate fighting Roky Erickson for who can make the biggest sound! Har! Har! Har!

Billy went on to provide great aid and comfort to the people that stole the rights to Roky Erickson's song catalog.

I have a copy of this handbill that is signed by Captain Colourz. I'll have to get Roky to sign it.
