Distinctive "Union of the Snake"

Hi Katy

I've always loved this song, especially the intro & middle 8 section. Can you ask Nick how it came about because it's very distinctive & complicated sounding. What inspired it / was any of it a lucky accident & was it easy to make those sounds? Regards, Kevin

"The creation of "Union of the Snake" coincided with my discovery of the Fairlight synthesizer, and that song probably illustrates the initial experimentation as the new toy was taken out of its box. I spent many hours creating new tones and trying to comprehend the outer limits of the sound spectrum the Fairlight provided. The Intro and the Middle 8 of "Union of the Snake" is the sound canvas painted in several layers by that instrument. NR"
