My Fantasy Band: Dev Hynes, Lightspeed Champion
Friday 21 November 2008
Vocals - Elli Medeiros
Medeiros was in the Seventies French punk band Stinky Toys. She formed an electro-pop band called Elli et Jacno, where she fronted some of the best pop of the Eighties.
Guitarist - Ryan Jarman
I think The Cribs are one of the best British bands ever. I love their inspirational guitar lines that lay across their songs like an electric eel in a bathtub. Most of their recordings have only a single-tracked guitar, and he only plays lead lines and no chords, which creates amazing energy.
Bass - Fieldy
Fieldy is the bassist from Korn... it would just be SICK!
Drums - Yukihiro Takahashi
He's the drummer, vocalist and songwriter in a highly influential Japanese pop band called Yellow Magic Orchestra. This guy knows what it means to have a steady, strong beat to create power in a song.
Conductor and Arranger - Joe Hisaishi
Hisaishi has been making violently euphoric soundtracks in Asia for years now.
Songwriter - Cass McCombs
I'd have Cass McCombs to write all the songs for this event. He is the greatest living songwriter.
