In [this interview](http://www.electricity-club.co.uk/html/int_morris.html), Stephen explains how he was drafted to play keyboards instead of his usual drums on certain New Order songs. "Did I want play keyboards? I'm the world's most reluctant keyboard player, I didn't really want to but it happened early on because there was just the three of us. It just happened that Bernard can't sing and play guitar at the same time, Hooky can't sing and play bass, and I just can't sing playing anything! So I ended up playing keyboards. We got the ARP Omni towards the end of Joy Division for *Closer* after using an ARP Solina earlier. So I ended up playing that with the drum machine on top."more
Amazing string machine. Synth is good for bass lines and just whatever. The only problem is that the fine tune knob lives on the bottom and needs a screwdriver for adjustments. Joy Division Atmosphere and 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', New Order 'Blue Monday' and 'Age of Consent', The Cure 'Just Like Heaven'. It's that classic strings sound.
