Hurray for the Riff Raff - St. Roch Blues

I discovered through the most recent issue of Uncut magazine and the album 'Small Town Heroes' was rightly praised by them. Saint Roch is a neighbourhood in New Orleans named after a very popular martyred Catholic Saint from Montpellier. You will hear some stories from that neighbourhood in the song and in the inter-cut live video. An elegiac gem and connects so nicely to the album name I want to discover the other small towns sung about on the LP.
