"Start working on a band loop called ‘Fast Track’ - Thom did a rough arrangement on Cubase last night. Nige and I then do some guitar sounds using my new toy - the first Roland guitar synth, which sounds pretty different. Jonny does a couple of (?) radio tracks. We then do a bit of editing and pruning. Nige is really into this thing of throwing down random shit and then simply keeping the really good stuff. It’s a cool way of writing, if only because you end up with things that you couldn’t possibly contrive to do."

Ed’s Diary

I’ve never heard mention of Ed using a Roland Guitar Synth before. It might be used to get the lo-fi sort of sound of the descending guitar at the very start of Fast Track which continuous throughout.
