It's a perennial pub question: who would you have in your dream band?
Ever the social media buff, Tim Burgess recently put this question to his followers, and had some surprising results.
The Charlatans frontman, however, had a surprise up his sleeve - not only had he decided who would be in his band, but he had actually brought them together.
He wrote: “Who would you have in your supergroup? Excluding Charlatans, mine would be: Vocals: Me & Ladyhawke Guitar: Joshua Hayward (The Horrors) Keys: Martin Duffy (Primal Scream) Bass: Debbie Googe (My Bloody Valentine) Drums: Steffan Halperin (The Chavs/ Klaxons)”.
The recording sessions actually took place 10 years ago, but will gain a full vinyl release as part of the Record Store Day festivities.
'As I Was Now' arrives on April 21st, with a full release following on May 14th. Tim explains:
“We were complaining about how boring things were between Christmas and New Year, so we got together to record some songs. Some songs were more complete than others, others appear on this record more finished than others.” '
As I Was Now' will be released on April 21st.
