The Sword Release “Slush’y” Cover of Rush’s “Working Man”


The Sword have released a cover of “Working Man,” from Rush’s self-titled 1974 debut. The track is third and final installment in a three-song mini-series, Conquest of Quarantine.

Says The Sword bassist Bryan Richie of the cover: 

“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. This dude had taken his favorite 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.”
