Melting down

If, by some bizarre clerical error, I ever find myself invited to curate my own Meltdown Festival, who would be there? Basically, the deal is, anyone who's alive.

The Magnetic Fields
Moe Tucker & Jonathan Richman
Pete Wylie
Ornette Coleman
Prince Buster
Gavin Bryars
Chavela Vargas (maybe these last two together?)
Geographic Night (Maher Shalal Hash Baz & The Pastels & Bill Wells)
Poetry Night (McGough & Patten & Attila & Cooper Clarke & Joolz & Zephaniah, etc... the people I saw at the Albert Hall when I was 16, minus the dead ones)
Terry Edwards
Super Furry Animals
Bo Diddley
Sugarcubes reformed for one night only
Tom Lehrer
Peter Skellern & Victoria Wood & The Black Dyke Mills Band
