My Fantasy Band: Kapil Trivedi, Mystery Jets
Drums - Jaki Liebezeit
He played in one of my all-time favourite bands, Can, and he was a huge part of their sound. If you check out their performance of 'Vernal Equinox' on the music show The Old Grey Whistle Test, it will blow your mind. He was a master craftsman. He's got a girl's name but he's the man.
Guitar - Robert Fripp
This guy is a total nut job, but that's not the only reason why I love him; he is an incredible musician and has such unique playing style. At a time when progressive rock music was at its peak, and the stage shows were so flamboyant and pompous, Robert Fripp preferred to be sat on a stool at the back of the stage without a spotlight.
Bass - Bernie Edwards
I would like to see Bernie Edwards, the funkiest man on the bass. Sadly Bernie passed away in 1996 so we'll have to raise him from the dead. Bernie and Nile Rodgers wrote, recorded and produced for a lot of huge stars. Bernie played in Chic, and he's responsible for what is quite possibly the best intros of all time: 'I'm Coming Out' by Diana Ross.
Vocals - Bradford Cox
Not only is he a great frontman for Deerhunter but I also love all his solo work with Atlas Sound. Bradford's an extremely intelligent man and, aside from the music, he's had to deal with a lot of things which has helped shape him into quite a profound individual. Also, there are a lot of egos in this fantasy band that I've chosen, and I think Bradford Cox will help these guys remember what's really important.
Mystery Jets are performing at this year's Great Escape taking place in Brighton on 10-12 May. Visit www.escapegreat.com for details. Mystery Jets' new album 'Radlands' is out on 30 April.
