The full complement of artists, writers and musicians is yet to be finalised, but – so far on the list is Jean Hanff Korelitz, novelist and essay writer; Paul Muldoon, poet, teacher, husband of Korelitz; comedian Eugene Mirman; Canadian guitarist, Steven Page; Canadian songwriter, Craig Northey – plus a trio of keyboardists: Walter Martin, keyboardist (well, it read keyboard/bass somewhere) for Brooklyn indie band, The Walkmen; Ian McLagan and myself, keyboardists respectively for London indie bands The Faces and the Pogues (not often one gets the opportunity to put Ian McLagan in a sentence with oneself). I’ll read a bit from the book, and play a song with Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders Band, (until I know the name of Wes’s band, I’ll call them that).
