Mark Russell: "When I read about the album before I heard it, I imagined there'd be no guitar, but I was surprised by how much there was."
Jonny Greenwood: "Yeah. And there's songs like 'Treefingers', which is just one guitar, but people just assume that it isn't."
Mark: "And so presumably you're using the guitar through lots of effects processors, or to trigger samples, so that actually, what is triggered by a guitar doesn't necessarily sound like a guitar."
Jonny: "Yeah. That's pretty much how it happened. Ed just played lots and lots of guitar loops, and was just creating wonderful texture, and Thom turned it into a structure, rather than something aimless, that was all."
Mark: "It's quite Eno-ish, isn't it, in a way?"
Jonny: "Yeah, it is. It's quite speaker-breaking as well. It has frequencies in it which can disturb the neighbours, while still being very kind of slow and ambient, having no rhythm in it."
