 "​Metropolis was a solo recording project created by Ben Hardwidge in 1996. The project was all recorded on a Fostex Model 80 reel-to-reel 8-track tape recorder that belonged to a friend of his parents, which he hired for £10 a day. Ben played all of the instruments on the album, including keyboards (none of which were programmed),​ bass and guitars, and he also programmed the drum machine, a Roland TR-505, which had really shit sounds and couldn'​t keep time. "​Metropolis was a solo recording project created by Ben Hardwidge in 1996.
