"Helicon 1"

When Mogwai plays this song on stage there is a feedback loop at the very start of the
tune, which lasts until the end. The note is a D. An E-bow can make this sound better.

Delay settings (DD-6) 8/10, 6/10, 4/10, 800 ms

Spot on for guitar parts, might have been worth mentioning that the bass parts are a bit essential for this song though...
