The Mekons: Work All Week #sotw

Holidays and weekends are strange things for the freelancer. I’m sure there are more disciplined types who can manage a schedule that includes regular days off but I’ve never been that person.  And so here we are at Labor Day and I expect to be in the studio for much of the day. Not that I’m even remotely disappointed about that. I’ve got handful of very rewarding projects on the go. The Fantastic Black album is actually almost completely tracked, which is a real thrill. This thing is gonna be kickass! And The Divine PK and I are working on her record and at least two other projects that I’m excited about. I’ll post more about them soon. Rest assured, the studio will soon again be full of string, horn, and woodwind players. Some of my favorite stuff to record.

In the meantime, here’s a song. Both in its scrappy original form (bottom) and here in a more pub-like acoustic version. From the Mekons, it’s “Work All Week.”
