POKEY LAFARGE ‘Rock Bottom Rhapsody’


Available on backorder


He wasn’t the first to be seduced by the nefarious delights of L.A., & probably won’t be the last, but the experience very nearly killed him.  Having moved from St. Louis a couple of years back, his aptly titled 9th album documents the cost of excess, a modern fable coated in a lacquer of confessional blues, jazz & vintage swing.  He and the band skilfully avoid any notions of contrivance, instead bending these vintage styles to his usual highly persuasive effect.
