George plays the guitar parts on the Ice Maiden. Jeff played his bassline into the S900. When Pete sang the melody to George for the first time it took him ages to decide which of the multitude of different possibilities to go with. There are two simultaneous guitar solos at the start of the song, both of which were recorded on the first take. Pete was initially sceptical about the whispered vocal. Various acoustic versions of this later appeared with the song transposed down to A. It was performed by The Bastard Sons of Dennis and Dr Watson and used as a teaching resource by George in his TEFL classes. Some of the bassdrum and snare parts were recorded by randomly bashing keys and then quantising. It produced some remarkably pleasing results.
