Justice: 'We'd work with Dave Grohl if he used an alias'

By
Justice have revealed that if they worked with big-name artists on a track, they'd ask them to use an alias.

The French duo admitted that they are not keen on collaborating with established acts because it diverts the attention away from the music.

"We don't normally do that type of thing, only for the reason that the enterprise calls for collaborations and not the inverse," Xavier de Rosnay told Digital Spy at Reading Festival.

Asked if they would consider approaching Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl if they bumped into him backstage, de Rosnay confessed they would ask him to use an alias on the track.

"We think you should know what you are going to do and if you need someone like Dave Grohl - which seems unlikely for us, although we love him - it would work in that sense.

"For Justice, we like to do things in a more low-key way and I think if we were to work with Dave Grohl we'd make it really discreet and make him use another name.

"Just because it sucks, especially when you're doing music, just to have a list of tracks that all have features. It dissolves everything and you lose the focus on what is important about the track."

Justice closed the NME/Radio 1 Stage at Reading Festival on Sunday night (August 26), while the Foo Fighters headlined the Main Stage.
