Fantasy band: Alexis Taylor, Hot Chip/ About Group
'Crystal Gayle knows how to convey heartache'
Vocals: Crystal Gayle, Will Oldham and Odetta
Crystal has one of my favourite voices, and she knows how to convey heartache better than anyone else on record. Will would be a great foil to Crystal's voice; and Odetta could do heavenly backing vocals.
Guitar: Tori Kudo
Maher Shalal Hash Baz's Tori Kudo plays with years of experience and skill. He would help navigate the way toward a new kind of collaborative music, devoid of touchstones and easy reference points.
Synths: Peter Gabriel
He would provide murmuring, atmospheric synth – and help with the chord changes.
Drums: Jon Theodore and Ringo Starr
They'd play together, almost in unison. Jon currently plays with Queens of the Stone Age and I think they'd make a great team and have stories to share about Baltimore and Thomas the Tank Engine.
Bass: Michael Henderson
Henderson had been touring with Stevie Wonder when Miles Davis allegedly saw him play and invited him to join his band instead, which he did.
Producer: Joe Goddard
I love Joe's production and have been fortunate enough to work with him since we were teenagers. He knows all of the individual's styles – and has the skills to bring them all together to make something amazing.
