Fantasy band: Nick Allbrook, Pond
'Most of the music I love is made by awful musicians'
Drums: Jaki Liebezeit
Most of the music I really love is made by people with unconventional or theoretically god-awful musicianship. But good players making a good band? Anyone who's forgotten time in the midst of Can's “Halleluhwah” can dig Jaki Liebezeit.
Bass: Larry Graham
Larry Graham from Sly and the Family Stone gets bass duties for “Thank You For Talkin' to Me Africa” alone.
Synth: Shags Chamberlain
I'd have Shags playing his trusty Realistic MG-1. He has played with Brous, Pikelet, Lost Animal, Isaiah Mitchell, Ariel Pink and Michael Rother. An all-round record/synth/bass wizard.
Production: Brian Eno
Just in case this lot of interstellar-shred-nerds got tempted into some cheeky proggery I'd have Brian Eno manipulating the thing.
Vocals: André Benjamin
He could sing, and probably wail, and hopefully dance. It'd be pretty all right if the band played his songs too. Probably the best guy in... probably the best guy.
Guitar: Joshua Hayward
I was gonna go with Robert Fripp. Well done on a life of kicking ass, Mr Fripp, but you'll have to go in favour of Mr Joshua Hayward of The Horrors. He can make pretty much every opiated leviathan howl I want a guitar to make.
