Sony DTC 1000 ES DAT can be spotted on 2nd on top of Liam's old rack setup from 1996.

Liam's comment:

"To play the whole set live would be impossible for us because we'd need about four operators and all the equipment, which I don't want to get into. We have a backing DAT live which has the body of the track with different bits left out so I can play live over the top. All the samples are played live, but not the main riffs in case something messes up!"
