Are either of us close?

Sorry for the delay. I don't remember clearly what that is. There's definitely a button accordian played by David, the pluck is either an old Balwin electric harpsichord played by Mitchell, or a Quatro (4 string gtr like instrument) played by David.
I'll try to find out for sure.
