What can be said that hasn't already been said about Roky. He is the master of macabre and psychotic rock n roll. That simple. While I am not the biggest fan of the new stuff (although it is a great effort at rekindling the same spine churning tales of previous albums) I think that Roky's greatest material maybe some of the live stuff. The Modern Humans Radio Show had Roky on in 1979. He played live in the studio with the Aliens and did a bit of an interview. This perfectly captures the charisma, strangeness, and over-all sincerity of that atom brain that could so easily fall flat and become just plain stupid. Don't knock the Rok!
