My Fantasy Band: Rou Reynolds, Enter Shikari
Friday 02 September 2011
Vocals - Colin Doran
He's the singer with Hundred Reasons, whose music and vocals have been a big influence on me. It's makes us really nostalgic as a band. His voice is really gritty but emotional and soft at the same time. He also has awesome hair.
Backing vocals - Cedric Bixler-Zavala
Also has great hair. He sang for At The Drive-In and has to be one of the most entertaining frontmen ever. He's not the most amazing singer but he's so creative and his lyrics are unbelievable; he's a walking thesaurus.
Guitar - Ben Weinman
He plays for the Dilinger Escape Plan and is so gifted and technical, without being up himself. I think he's the brain behind the music – it's really rhythmic – but, on stage, he's an absolute nutcase. I don't know how he performs note for note and still runs around like a lunatic.
DJ - Liam Howlett
The Prodigy have also had a huge influence on us. They have incredible sub-bass and bass line and electronics and synths, so he could cover all of that.
Drummer - Mitch Mitchell
He was The Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer, among others. Very no frills but had a solid beat and felt the groove.
