My Fantasy Band: Coco Sumner, I Blame Coco
Friday 15 October 2010
Vocals - David Bowie
I would have to have Bowie doing something, so he can be the lead singer. I suppose I got into him when I was about 14 years old. He is just an amazing, amazing songwriter. I think he's one of the most unique and important songwriters of the last century.
Backing vocals - Abba
Abba are one of my favourite bands, so I'd have all of them up there doing backing vocals. They are a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.
Guitar - Neil Young
I would like to see Jimi Hendrix play, but I'm going to go for Neil Young on guitar. He's just so good and he's very cool. I think he'd probably keep everyone very calm. I watched him at Glastonbury when he headlined last year; it was quite magical.
Piano - Kate Bush
I'm a massive Kate Bush fan, so I'd have her on piano and probably singing as well. "Running up That Hill" is one of my favourite songs; I think I would probably have that song played at my funeral. It's just brilliant.
Drums - Brian Blade
I'd have Brian Blade on drums. He is a jazz drummer from Louisiana and he's my favourite drummer. He's just incredible. He plays with his entire body; he uses everything.
I Blame Coco will be playing at the Relentless Freeze Festival, which takes place in London from 29 to 31 October (www.thefreezefestival.com). I Blame Coco's debut album, 'The Constant', is released on 8 November
