Indie Supergroup Take on Phil Collins, White Stripes

What happens when you combine members of The Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, and The Strokes and have them perform songs from Phil Collins and fellow artist, Jack White?

You get something call the Pop All Star Band, but don’t expect for this supergroup to go on and become a powerhouse of indie players.

Last week, Win Butler and his brother Will were joined on stage by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and The Strokes’ Nikolai Fraiture during a show in Montreal; the Arcade Fire’s hometown.

The special one-off performance happened during the halftime show of the Butler brothers’ annual Pop vs. Jock charity basketball game (you know, the one that Win always gets way into and does stupid stuff?).

The randomly chosen group, which also included the Arcade Fire’s Regine Chassagne took on Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” as well as The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.”

As for the game itself, it looks like the Butler brothers’ team won which would explain why there hasn’t been any story as of yet of Win throwing a hissy-fit over a bad call.

Check out the video of the supergroup performing both tracks.
