My Fantasy Band: Yannis Philippakis, Foals
'I think Björk would just be the perfect twist of lemon on top of an already pretty weird band'
Drums: Stella Mozgawa
Warpaint's drummer has a great intuitive groove and is the best female drummer I've ever seen. Actually, she's one of the best drummers I've ever seen full stop. She has a different emphasis on certain beats; she's just thrilling to watch.
Bass: Bernard Edwards
He played bass for Chic and he wrote the best bass lines of the last 50 years. He was also inadvertently the godfather of hip-hop. All of his sounds were in his fingers, he wasn't reliant on effects or studio trickery, it was all just natural killer, in the pocket groove.
Guitar: David Okumu & John Fahey
Okumu is from The Invisible, who I've toured with before. We've spoken about having a jam together before but we've never gotten round to it. He's amazing; the whole band is amazing really. I'm envious of his style. Fahey was the first guitarist to draw emphasis on the guitar as a solo instrument within bluegrass and stuff like that. His playing was incredibly evocative and he also had the personal mythology and charisma to make you fall in love with him.
I think she just would be the perfect twist of lemon on top of an already pretty weird band.
