Cocteau Twins, Echo & the Bunnymen, Goldfrapp, Massive Attack, Spiritualized members...together at last!

Best supergroup ever?

Okay, so it already happened. November 26, 2008, in London, in fact. But if it happened once, maybe it'll happen again, riiiiiight??? They're called the Hookham Boys. And they are people like (deep breath) Damon Reece (Massive Attack, Echo And The Bunnymen, Spiritualized), Alex Lee (Suede, Goldfrapp), Sean Cook (Spiritualized), Joe Allen (Strangelove), Jake Drake Brockman (Echo And The Bunnymen), Vincent Pellegrino and Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins). SIGH! Elizabeth Fraser! Of Cocteau Twins! The band I almost returned to the desert inferno known as CoacHELLa to see, after vowing I would never go back for anything besides my high school love Portishead. The Guardian describes the performance as an evening of "countrybilly and a sprinkle of Johnny Cash covers." Nothing on YouTube yet, alas.
