Lou Ford: Sad, But Familiar

Nick Hasted, Uncut, May 2000

THE ALBUM cover's a telegraph pole, wires strung across the horizon. A shoe's been tied to one, drunkard's wit. The title? Sad, But Familiar. Welcome to the laconically hilarious, bleakly sparse, small-town world of Lou Ford, the view from the dead end of the American highway.
