Wilco have just released an mp3 single of Woody Guthrie’s “The Jolly Banker,” at Wilcoweb, and while the suggested donation to the Woody Guthrie Foundation is $2, Jeff Tweedy and company are understanding folks and are fully aware of the times we’re living in, so they’ve presented three payment options:
For the working folk — Thanks for the track. I’m happy to support the Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives. (Suggested minimum donation: two bucks.)
For those affected by the great recession — Sorry, I’m unemployed / underemployed or otherwise broke. I’ll download the track and I’ll make it up to you later, I promise.
And for those responsible for the great recession — I am/was a banker/hedge fund manager/credit default swap trader. I know times are tough, but I’m just fine thank you. (Suggested minimum donation $100.00)
