Finest Work Song

Stumbled on this one randomly - Golden Palominos - Finest Work Song from 1986:

Apparently this is an unreleased Golden Palominos song that pre-dates Document. A lot of similarities to REM’s Finest Worksong, along with a line from King of Birds.


Never heard this, nor heard of it. Clearly a Finest Worksong prototype. Nice find.

Interesting, never knew that, thanks for sharing! A quick Google search turned up this mention from Chris Stamey’s book “A Spy in the House of Loud: New York Songs and Stories”


Wow, this is a great find - thanks for sharing!!

This is class, never heard of though. Boy (Go) is probably my favourite non-REM Stipe track though.
