You're Gonna Miss Me

By eternal editor AC89

You're Gonna Miss Me by Radio Birdman and the 13th Floor Elevators

This week's karaoke classic is 'You're Gonna Miss Me' by Radio Birdman.

"Oooh! I love this song," says Lady Jemima Nutbutter-Duckbutter-Jones.

"It always reminds me of the time I fell in with the wrong crowd and robbed a circus of all it's chimps."

"Honestly, Aussie punk pioneers Radio Birdman covering Texan psychedelic rock pioneers the 13th Floor Elevators – what more could you want?"

A battered egg?

I guess while I'm at it, I might as well post up the original to boot because it's bloody excellent as well.

And if you want to know how you can get your hands on these tracks in vinyl form or whatever, the first comes from the 1978 overseas version of Radio Birdman's second album Radios Appear and the latter, i.e. the one below, comes from the 1966 classic The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators.

So there.

Don't say I don't give you anything because I don't.

The above two vids are embedded here on the tune-tastic Rake & Herald from the respective YouTube channels of Jaime Lizaranzu and jefffro1000, which you can check out here and here.
