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.

Drums: Reni

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.

Theme Park have put together a Christmas Mixtape that you can stream here: They release their debut album early next year
