Tony Beliveau plays a clavinet with a whammy bar on several of the tracks on Crash Kings
including this one. His brother Mike told popwreckoning
how they ended up using the unusual instrument: "It's kind of a, well the instrument found us in a lucky moment. Tony was going to borrow a keyboard from a friend and ended up with this great keyboard because they couldn't find the original one that they were looking for, so he brought this back to the studio and was like, 'Hey, Mike. You have to come check this thing out. It's crazy. It has a whammy bar.' It's a pretty rare thing. So we got to the studio and were both like, 'Woah.' The ideas for the instrument started forming; we can distort this thing or make it sound like guitar. Basically what it is, it's an electric guitar in a keyboard format. It has guitar strings and the whammy bar is a classic element of a guitar, so we thought it would work great in a rock band. That's how that instrument came to be in our band.
