My Fantasy Band: Marcus Haughton Theme Park
'He's a bit of a curveball. We'd have to rein him in a bit'
Synths: Joe Mount
Metronomy's frontman is a synths genius. On their second album, Nights Out, he uses these brass-sounding synths, which I thought were pretty sweet.
Vocals: Har Mar Superstar
He's a brilliant performer. I saw him headline the 1234 Festival about five years ago. Fab Moretti from The Strokes drummed for him. I'd read about Har Mar in NME and they said he was crazy. And he was. .
Vocals: Stevie Nicks
I want her to be the main vocalist for the group. She'd add some depth to the vocals to counteract Har Mar's. I'd love to see Fleetwood Mac when they're on tour next year.
He's the drummer for The Stone Roses and he's just a great drummer; he has an organic, rubbery feel.
Bass: Peter Hook
With all his work with Joy Division and New Order, he has played many a classic bass line very competently.
Guitar: Steve Vai
He's a bit of a curveball. We'll have to rein him in a bit because otherwise he'll be trying to do guitar solos all over the place. But he comes up with some crazy sounds. He's pretty mental.
