WJWTRTW / The Usual Black (1:59)

Composition: Oikarinen

Track details:
Matti: percussion
Oikku: acoustic & electric guitars, percussion
Ville: fretted bass, clarinet


This is another instrumental track, the middle part after the clarinet solo is perhaps the most intimate section of the album. The anthemic main theme melody was written on guitar. The variation of the melody in the B section was written on keyboards and it is very unnatural to play with a guitar.

The clarinet solo may have something in common with the synth solo in Universe’s End. Ville actually played some percussion for this song (not credited), the silent ride cymbal behind the solo was played by him (his only percussive contribution, excluding the bass work).
