Wilco Offers Pay-What-You-Can Track Download

Suggested Donation “Slightly” Higher For Bankers

Apr 30, 2009 Bookmark and Share


In anticipation of the June 30th release of Wilco (The Album), the band has posted their version of Woody Guthrie’s “The Jolly Banker” for download.The song features Feist on percussion.

As a sign of benevolence in sketchy economic times the track is free, with a suggested two-dollar donation to the Woody Guthrie Foundation and Archives. However, bankers, hedge fund mangers, and credit default swap traders are encouraged to start their donations at $100.

I believe it was Radiohead who did this as well… a few years ago, that is.
