Called Silver Machine, the covers band includes son-of-Ringo and current Who drummer Zak Starkey, Sex Pistols' bassist Glen Matlock and Primal Scream guitarists Andrew Innes and Barrie Cadogan.
As reported in the NME, the band will be performing a selection of songs from some of their favourite bands including the likes of the Troggs, the MC5, Chocolate Watch Band, the Creation and Flamin' Groovies.
Festival director Sean McLusky explained to Subba Cultcha how Silver Machine came to be. "We did a show at the Whitechapel Gallery with S.C.U.M and a bunch of other artists, Bobby was playing and rocked 'Wild Thing' by the Troggs with Jamie Hince from the Kills, so I asked him if he would do more of the same at the festival, so now we have ... the Silver Machine.
Gillespie and the others are very much looking forward to Silver Machine's first and final show, the singer declared, "We're great, we can't wait."
The one-off collaboration will take place on July 24 when Silver Machine play London's 1234 festival in Shoreditch.
