Guitar isn’t the kind of instrument you can play convincingly as an occasional player, as is also the case with drums and percussion. There wasn’t a desire to switch probably because we were always keen to try to push ourselves on the instruments we’d chosen. I was called upon to play keyboard parts purely for the practical reason of accuracy of timing, since JAPAN albums were recorded before the days of midi and computers, so particularly on ‘Tin Drum’ this was the case, but it wasn’t by way of experimentation. I think the only time we all sat around recording ourselves bashing percussion was during the Rain Tree Crow sessions. As for David on live bongos (probably you mean congas) I must have been looking the other way.
