  • Computers focus you in on all the wrong things. You start to worry about minute pitching differences. When the band first started, they never knew about concert pitch... or tuning. No one had a tuner, it was okay, that's an E because it's the bottom string. We recorded Superstition with Stephen Hague because it was a perverse idea, he'd worked with New Order, the Pet Shop Boys... we should have been warned. Stephen's a computer fiend, and when you're working with computers, there's no need to stop. You can constantly readjust, rejig, you can move notes left and right. But somehow, computers don' t seem to belong in the recording studio and, if they are, they should be in the back somewhere. They should help you tap your creative energy, not be the creative energy. It certainly didn't work with us.

Song lyrics[edit]

Superstition (1991)[edit]

  • Nothing or no one
    Will ever make me let you down.
    Kiss them for me, I may be delayed.
    Kiss them for me, if I am delayed.
