Pharrell Williams, Julian Casablancas And Santogold
My Drive ThruMore on Pharrell Williams
My order? An extra meaty NERD Burger please, hold the cheesy rock bits, extra Prince. There’s a special deal on? Free smooth’n’creamy Casablancas Vocal Sauce and a side order of Santo-Disco Twizzlers? Go large! What could have been a recipe worse than anything Gordon Ramsay’s ever spat in the face of a hapless sous chef on Kitchen Nightmares turns out to be a smorgasbord of fabulous flavas: Santi provides the dancefloor delectability, Pharrell the horny-as-a-mongoose funk and Jules the insouciant NYC cool, stood at the bar refusing to dance. Supersize it? You betcha.
