Phoenix mixed its upcoming album Bankrupt! on the same engineering console used to record Michael Jackson's landmark album Thriller. According to the New Yorker, Phoenix guitarist Laurent Brancowitz found the Harrison 4032 solid state console for sale on the eBay page of Clayton Rose, owner of a Christian music studio in Fullerton, California. The band decided they had to purchase the board because they "liked the idea of working with a consecrated artifact, as well as having something strange upon which to fixate between albums."
Singer Thomas Mars said, "The most mysterious part to me was that no one else -- no nerd or music engineer or memorabilia freak -- seemed to want it." He added, "There was something a little spooky about (Rose). He was very pushy. It seemed like a scam."
