|Arcade Fire's REFLEKTOR|
Arcade Fire cover band wanted: Knowledge of “hurdy gurdy” essential:
Know what a hurdy gurdy is? You too can be the next member of an Arcade Fire cover band.
Posted on Craigslist by a Toronto-based guitarist, the ad calls for 20 musicians including two violinists, a harpsichordist, a horn section that “MUST come as a package”, steel drummers, an accordion player, an organist, two drummers, back-up singers in addition to two main singers, and “someone who knows what a hurdy gurdy is”. It’s worth noting that the current touring incarnation of Arcade Fire features a measly 12 members including two Haitian drummers and former core member Sarah Neufeld.
