What The Orderly Saw
What’s it about?
A hospital orderly witnesses a Doctor cutting a brain out of a corpse, then trying to double cross the man who paid him to do it.
What’s going on musically?
All the songs in the Miser’s Will connect musically. In this case the main riff is a much elongated version of the chord changes from one line (Follow follow said the letter) from the previous song, taken down a fourth.
I’m really proud of the guitar part on this song, and the fact that I had the courage to go minimal and build up slowly. Always goes down well live too. Everyone likes a song about a brain in a jar.
