The Zone's Fantasy Band

Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

The Zone's Fantasy Band

Postby Seppuku on Wed Jun 14, 2006 6:49 am

Pretty self-explanatory title, eh?

OK, so that's that, go have a party, grace this thread with your genius so that one day it will be bronzed for all future forumers to see.








Wait, that's not a good enough intro for you?

Well, it's been a long day, but I'll try. Who'd be in your ideal band? That's drummer, bassist, guitarist, singer etc. etc (don't go overboard eh, there can only be one Polyphonic Spree). And then when you've done that, give the imaginary group a name.

Here's mine:

On drums we have the inimitable (that IS a compliment right?) John Bonham.

On the keyboards we have Herbie Hancock.

On bass we have Jah Wobble (formerly of Public Image Ltd.)

On guitar we have Curtis Mayfield (he's a surprisingly good picker).

And then, branching-out from his usual scene, we have Smokey Robinson capping this super-group with an unhealthy dollop of honeyed vocals.

I dub this group The Everyband.

Now you go...

Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

KCBC that would be one freaky as hell group, but I'd go see them ten times. You've gotta come up with a name for 'em though, otherwise it's no fun.

(Oh and I deleted the thread by accident. I'm just glad I've not got Mod-Power, I'd probably accidentally delete one of the forums, or unwittingly B4N Cpt Kirk. Hmm...).

Do I get a T shirt or something for trying to post on the original thread?

"The Everyband" Original Tour 06, or something?

"Original Everyman"

No?

Man, you guys changed...


Ahem. Anyway, I been thinking about it for over 10 mintes now, and I already feel like I need commiting to a music-less wing of Bellview.

So many choices, so many ways to turn...

I think I'm gonna let my brain cool to a reasonable temperature and take another crack at it later...



Genius thread, Sepp.

Keyboards - Wolfgang Flúr/Ray Manzarek rotation

Guitar - Johnny Marr

Vocals - Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn

Bass - Kim Deal/Holger Czukay rotation

DJ - Zinc

Electronic Noodler - Johnny Greenwood


I have no idea what they'd sound like but I like to think they'd have decidely groove filled tracks with a nice jazz/rock fusion (yes, I said fusion, I'm not ashamed)

Oh and I'd call them The Sludgy Urban Funk Generators

Hehehehe, I thought using the word "noodler" were nullify any accusations of pretension over my choices. And I can't choose between Manzarek or Flur....you try, it's dead hard :cry: :roll: :wink:
I wanted heavy rock, sweet jazz and austere inhuman funk all at once....

Oh yeh, now I understand the pretentious label :D
And you can be the one to tell Johnny Marr they aren't the headliners, muahahahahahaha.

Bongos - Ronaldinho

Backed up by Mixmaster Mike on the decks and Kevin Shields as head 'noodler'. What the hell, I'll chuck Rahzel on stage as well. And some chicks in cages. And a gospel choir, actually a bikini-clad choir IN cages.

If only.

Violin - Russell Senior
Vocals - Neil Young
Vocals / Lyricist - Gruff Rhys
Guitar - Richard Hawley
Tamborine and Harmonica - Bob Dylan
DJ - Josh Wink
Bez - Syd Barrett
Drums - Animal

The tunes would be folky prog rock that all melt into techno by at least song end. They'd go by the moniker of Buffalo Bacon and would have their own late night sitcom on Channel 4.

guitar: Glenn Branca

another guitar: Lee Renaldo

and another: Thurston Moore

tape manipulation, electronics, and found sound: Jim Thirwell and Blixa Bargeld

turntables: Christian Marklay (for noise and sound collaging, not 'beats'
per se -- thats what iPods are for; yesm, you heard me, the arte of the
DJ is and has been dead for years; hip hop turntablism was bad ass
about 10 years ago. Now? just ass, sans bad; but thats probably just me
being a curmudgeonly musick snob again...)

bass: Phil Lesh (after reprogramming -- so much talent wasted on hippie
flowerchild shit; he needs to get with the atonal, not so much the
rainbow)

drums: John French (of Captain Beefheart's Magic Band), Yoshimi P-We
(of BOREDOMS), Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann (of the Dead, who, like
Lesh, would need to go through a rigorous deprogramming regimin in
order to cleanse their minds of the hippie and get in touch with their inner
avantgarde artpunk noiseangels...)

vocals: (varies from song to song) Captain Beefheart, David Bowie, Eye
Yamataka (sp?), Bjork, and Yoshimi P-We again...

Also, please to be including the entire SUN RA ARKESTRA for space is the
place, yo...

There are some good picks already, here's mine:

Guitar: Omar Rodriguez-Lopez
Bass: Flea
Vocals: Mike Patton
Drums: Dave Grohl

I will likely add more members shortly, but I think it's a nice start...

I'm going for the ultimate girl group, not sure how this lot would get on whilst on the tour bus, but the music would be interesting.


Roland TR-909 - Drums

Helen Marnie - Korg MS 2000B & Backing Vocals

Melissa Auf Der Maur - bass & backing Vocals

Polly Jean Harvey - guitar & vocals

Neko Case - guitar & vocals

Martina Topley-Bird - vocals

Bjork - Manager, producer & backing vocals

The guitars would take a back seat in production with Marnie giving a steely electronic edge to the music, vocals at the fore front, Bjork would steer her super group into unchartered melodic territories.

Their name? The Rosary Peas.

I would pay good money to see this band. Awesome choices, KC - although I have to salute the name "The Rosary Peas" - genius name Dog!

PS - I'm going to see the Foo Fighters in Hyde Park this Saturday, supported by the Queens of the Stone Age! :P

Percussion - Jamie Muir ( from King Crimsom's Lark's Tongue in Aspic )
Drums - Carl Palmer or Phil Collins

Guitars - Steven Hackett

Keyboards - Keith Emerson/the late Vincent Crane

( In the late 1960s/early 1970s there were really only two keyboardists - three if you count Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep - that rocked the UK... Emerson & Crane of Arthur Brown/Atomic Rooster.)

Devices/ambiance - Robert Fripp & Brian Eno

Vocals/lyrics - Peter Gabriel/Kate Bush

I darst not thinketh. To think of those too "jamming" together. Oooog. :shock:

Seriously, we need a xylophone revival. The last Xylophone I heard was on the Latest Fall album, "Heads will roll", the track "Pacifying Joint", I think. Good record too.

Edit: Um, it was either the fall or the violent femmes... :?

guitar - andy gill & steve bartek / junior brown & dean ween

keys - barry andrews / hiizumi masayuki

vocals - david yow / dan hicks & stevie wonder (alternating)

hahaha. patton would have been too easy. and in addition, i kept him out, because i think he would put too much of his stamp on things, if you know what i mean. like by having him, all the other players would be reduced to bit parts in a "patton project", which is something i would like to avoid if possible.

as far as googling, start with maceo parker, then trevor dunn, then kevin o'donnel (andrew bird's bowl of fire). if you still have time after that, check out junior brown!

I came up with two bands, one sorta rootsy/folky and the other sorta hard loud prog rock.

Rootsy band:

Vocals: Sandy Denny and Bob Seger (need both male and female voices)
Electric guitar: Mark Knopfler
Acoustic Guitar: Gerry O’Beirne
Bass: Mike Rutherford
Drums/Vocals: Levon Helm
Keyboards/horns: Garth Hudson

I’m glad someone else pointed out just how elegant a bassist Rutherford is. He’s a wonderful musician. Sandy Denny is the best singer who ever lived. Bob Seger is amazingly effective as a singer, especially on ballads. If you’ve never heard Gerry O’Beirne, you have a real treat ahead of you. Levon and Garth should need no introduction.

Heavy prog band:

Vocals: Roger Daltrey
Guitar 1: Carlos Santana
Guitar 2: Steve Howe
Bass: John Entwistle
Keyboards: Rick Wakeman
Drums: Butch Trucks and Jaimoe Johanson

There was a time when Roger Daltrey possessed the mightiest voice in rock, as well as a fantastic sense of drama. Carlos Santana is one of the most distinctive lead guitarists ever. Steve Howe can do just about anything with a variety of guitars, including pedal steel from outer space. John Entwistle was the most overpoweringly awesome bassist in history. Rick Wakeman needs no introduction. And the drummers from the Allman Brothers Band create a fantastic, propulsive, wash of jazzy-rocky sound that I find intoxicating. Why don’t more bands use two drummers?

Fair play Vicar, you always provide me with apt fuel for a music hunt!

I wonder what Levin does with himself lately? He fell under my radar after ThraK somehow.

Good to see you again, Driller.

Levin is still touring & recording with the Tony Levin Band.
They're playing in Pennsylvania this weekend, in point of fact.
He has a website tonylevin.com.
Its good.

I would hate to think of a man with his skills just sitting around.

Carry on brother.

Perfect, and Lurker can play the Meat Flute.



hahaha just saw this . . . damn, that would be the most awesome set of misfits . . . what would it be, sort of punk band, rock, acoustic, or folkie? . . . either way, "Phantom Zoners" would make a damn fine name for a band if the rights aren't unattainable :wink:

Surprised nobody has mentioned Josh Freese.

Drums - Josh Freese (Vandals, a million other bands)
Vocals-Guitar - Matthew Bellamy (Muse)
Bass - Jesse Buglione (Lagwagon, good but understated bass)

For hip hop..

Mf Doom and Gza with Stoupe and Dangermouse doing beats would shake the earth to it's core.

Well then, sod it. Let's put together our own true Zoners Band.

I can write lyrics, some tunes and mangle guitar, keyboards & bass if need be.
Sing some too.
How about the rest of you simple f#cks?
Step up and be counted, if you be not all miscreant...

My Group:

Drums

Zack Starkey - Oasis

Image

Son of the famous Ringo Starr, the guy is just a legend on drums. He makes it seem so effortless whilst retaining the ultimate in drumming beats. Has played with Oasis (where I believe he is still their drummer) and was also on tour with The Who. Being the son of one of the most famous drummers in the world is hard enough, but actually being a drummer and making it in his own way is just as tough. He walks into my line-up.

Bass

OX - Lordi

Image

How could I make a supergroup and not include someone from Lordi? The guy is an awesome bassist, and what makes it even harder is the full gear that he wears while playing. Just listen to the bass riffs, sit back and smile. Truely great. Ever tried playing a Bass with pyrotechnics attached to it?

Rhythm Guitar

Johnny Cash - Johnny Cash and the Tennesee Two/Three.

Image

This was actually a rather difficult one for me because there are so many great guitarists that could have fitted here. Bit I chose Mr Cash because he is a Rhythm Guitarist. Look up the chords and listen to the songs and you will see that Johnny didn't play the little riffs, he just backed them up. Luther Perkins played the main riffs, the solos and such on his song, and it was backed up with the song Luther Played the Boogie. Johnny was a great guitarist, and probably the greatest Rock and Roll Country star there has ever been.

Lead Guitar

Zack Wilde - Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society

Image

I have had the supreme pleasure of seeing Zack in concert before and he has to go down as one of the greatest guitarists I have ever seen. I mean, he can play ripping solos with his teeth, and behind his back as well - though not at the same time. He has so much energy and passion, it's just brilliant.

To be honest, this was the hardest one, there are so many guitarists here that would fit so well. Slash, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Paul McCartney, Any of the guitarists from Iron Maiden, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, Pete Townshend. All absolutly amazing guitarists, but I think Zack Pips it just for the awesomeness of playing a guitar solo with your teeth...just fantastic.
