I am giving a big shout-out today to Anais Nohant for her utterly sublime super group contest. It was a painstaking process for me of course, and with this scenario before me filled with endless possibilities my line-up of choice could conceivably change from moment to moment depending on what is capturing my fancy during that precise millisecond.
Anyways, with little further ado here is my über group du jour;
The line-up features The Edge on Guitar, the late great Klaus Nomi and his soaring falsetto on lead vocal, topped off with a rhythm section featuring Sly and Robbie (aka Lowell Dunbar - drums, and Robert Shakespeare - bass).
Of course it would sound just as you imagine; a consistent and engaging reggae groove supporting Edge's soaring infinite guitar as the wildly varied pitches in Nomi's vocals create a surreal sonic tapestry to weave in and out of the masterful instrumentation.
Recognizing of course that Nomi is not a household name, here is some footage to reel you in;
Of course this was way too much fun, and you have to know I will be creating über groups as a regular feature from now on! Thanks again Anais for the inspiration.
