"Re–amping and distortion are likewise more important to Craig Potter's own keyboard sounds than experimentation with synthesis or sampling. 'I don't have many old analogue synths, I have a few, but I usually just use piano and bits of organ,' he says. 'I suppose I'm just a big fan of distortion, really. I distort everything! Piano distortion I love. We just chuck a 58 or a 57 in the piano and then we run that out, make sure there's plenty of doors in the way so it doesn't feed back, crank it up through an amp — I love that sort of thing. So it is basically piano that I play, bit of organ, some synths. We've got the Microkorg we used for the bass on 'Bones Of You' and we've got a Nord, little bits and bobs.'"
