The Organ Grinder’s Monkey is the latest project from Meursault. The idea was to crowd source the money for the band to go to SXSW by offering to record an album half of which would be Meursault originals and the others covers all suggested by those who had pledged to the cause.
The results are quite astounding There are covers from bands such as Guided By Voices and Wreckless Eric and the re-recordings especially that of One Day This’ll All Be Fields are well worth having also. This album is more than just a off the cuff recording to fund a trip but something that is well worth owning in it’s own right and something that Neil and everybody else involved in the project should be immensely proud of.
The track posted is not available for download but if you like what you hear go here and buy the album. It’s worth it. Trust me.
