I sublet a friend of a friend's apartment who was going away for the summer. But, while I was writing that song, or coming up for the very first demo for it, I was going to program a drum machine or something so I could play along to it. Then I thought "Well, I've got this sampler set up right here. It will be easier just to make my own beat and loop it. It will be done quicker." I mean, it wasn't like a stylized thing and I didn't think I would ever use it. I was just trying to come up with the fastest way I could to have this beat down that I could play along to. Then I realized that it was wild, so I gradually talked Jim (Eno) into letting that be the beat.
