Distinctly unique for their use of a large number of musical instruments and enthralling live performances, Montreal-based Arcade Fire initially emerged from an idea invented by Win Butler (born Edwin Farnham Butler III in Texas) as he made up his mind to play music in a band. His first attempt to assemble a solid lineup, however, disappointingly failed, and so was the second one, with only a member named Regine Chassagne who eventually became his wife.
