VIDEO NEWS: The Sword Reveal Cover Of Rush Classic ‘Working Man’
The Sword have revealed a cover of Rush classic Working Man, the third and final instalment of their Conquest Of Quarantine lockdown session series.
“In the early 2000s we were given a CD by one of Kyle’s record store buddies with SLUSH scrawled across it and little did we know what a wild ride awaited us,” says bassist Bryan Richie. “This dude had taken his favourite Rush songs and dropped the pitch control on his record player as low as it would go – taking these classic Rush tracks and turning them into a C standard sludge fest with the most air drumable drums!! Does it doom? Heck yes it does. Enjoy our cover of the classic Rush track Working Man with a Slush’y spin.”
