The NSP tracks I recorded with Peter Gabriel never made it onto the album, but the first track features me playing GHB, digitally re-tuned to A and put through a Lesley unit (the great big fan used to give the distinctive tremolo effect on Hammond organs!).
NSP DO feature on Ommadawn, if you listen very, very carefully, but it's mostly drones and one long chanter note if my memory serves me right. Paddy "If-it-makes-a-noise-I'll-jam-along-and-market-it-as-fusion" Moloney plays the UP.
