Stephen David Heitkotter
Sadly, Heitkotter was institutionalized for schizophrenia by his family who didn't know how to care for him. In the same vein of thought as Roky Erickson, and Daniel Johnston, this is a strange "bedroom" produced pysch-rock album which had only about 25 original copies pressed and handed out to local radio stations in California. It became a holy grail to find one of these, and what little collectors knew of Stephen's troubled past became legend. Finally, in 2010 his work was dusted off and reissued, including some demo recordings which had essentially never been heard by anyone else.
