Pokey LaFarge – ‘Central Time’

<i>Ruddy good, if you like breezy Western swing</i>

Pokey LaFarge is a man who ignores post-1946 musical developments like evangelical Christians ignore the fossil record: nuh-uh, Jesus says no. Which makes him a natural fit for the Third Man Records roster. ‘Central Time’ is three minutes of breezy Western swing, and ruddy good it is too (if you’re into this sort of thing).
