“The Hearse Song” has its basis in a Traditional American folk lyric which to this day is recited by children across the United States on Halloween.
Some of you may be familiar with the chorus….
“The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out
The worms play pinochle on your snout
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose
They eat the jelly between your toes”
Brillig adapted, arranged and set this to music, and the resulting track enjoys a lurching, uneasy Addam’s Family groove. With hypnotic acoustic & electric guitars, a super groovy bass, chimey autoharp, creepy accordion, and the requisite silly lyrics, Brillig have truly made this track their own. A shout out to awesome Adelaide-based drummer BJ Barker, who laid down some strident military-style beats with flair.
Recorded in March 2011 at Hillside Studios with Matt Hills and mastered by Disk-Edits’ Neville Clark, “The Hearse Song” is hot off the press and ready to roll.
