My Fantasy Band: Brody Dalle, Spinnerette
Friday 02 October 2009
Vocals - Kathleen Hanna
My teenage years were filled with the sound of Bikini Kill. I love Kathleen's voice. I would want her shouty shrieks and screams all over this band. Her politico-sexual female empowerment is just what this band needs.
Vocals - Julian Casablancas
Julian's voice is bad-ass; he writes great lyrics, dances out of time and is a little bit awkward. He reminds me of Joey Ramone. I would want Julian and Kathleen to sing together like Exene and John Doe of X.
Guitar - Greg Ginn
Greg from Black Flag is the coolest punk-rock guitar player of all time. He was influenced by jazz, which is what makes him so interesting. He never conformed to anyone else's style: I would put his playing in his own category – psycho/ sexy/doom/schizo-slayer.
Bass Bootsy Collins
He is responsible for the most ass-shaking music of all time and his playing is like a brain tune-up. James Brown was jealous of him.
Drums - Dave Grohl
Nirvana are my favourite band. I've watched him play a lot lately, and it has only confirmed what I've known all along – he's the best rock drummer in the world.
