                Russell uses two delay pedals for the verses and choruses, the first one set to 
sixteenth notes at roughly 146 BPM and the second one set to eighth notes at the
same tempo. Both have a high feedback setting. He uses a line selector to switch
entitled "Bloc Party - Octopus guitar lesson - Riff Of The Month" that explains the
procedure better than I can.
