Manic Revelations

Pokey LaFarge - Manic Revelations

Each chord, each riff, shades the stories Pokey LaFarge sets up in his lyrics, always in search of the purest truth within the 10 forlorn, haunting melodies on Manic Revelations. A musician, a storyteller, a narrator of the messy, unkempt American experience…Pokey LaFarge sits, he watches, he writes. Everything that’s worth happening happens in his songs. From the broad social narrative of “Riot In The Streets” to the internal tension of “Must Be A Reason” and “Bad Dreams” to the profound alienation of “Silent Movie,” these manic revelations are questions, they are answers, they are an epoch for Pokey LaFarge.
