Rush - Working Man (Screwed and Chopped by ?)
OK, stay with me here. This is the only time that would ever post anything by pretty much the worst band ever, Canadian Progressive Rock dorks Rush. A friend sent me this last night and I am sort of amazed by the powers of slowing things down in this instance. Notice how the guitars actually sound well, Metal, and Geddy Lee's hideous voice actually sounds well, tolerable. As you know, I'm always looking at music with extreme tempos whether it be Footwork or Screw Tapes, and this is a case where the later turns something once extremely bland into something actually pretty cool. Looks like the main problem with Rush (aside from them being wankers) is they were at the wrong speed. I think I even have a screwed version of Black Betty around here somewhere.
