Robbie,

If you are going to use a membrane band material, like Kerdi Band, I'd recommend you install it using thinset mortar. IMO, you'll get better, more consistent coverage with mortar than you will with applying multiple beads of whatever adhesive/sealant you choose, and the mortar will be less expensive.

Heed Mike's advice on getting the wall studs as flat, plumb, and in plane as you possibly can. Any wall board you use, when properly fastened to the studs, will follow any waviness there is. As long as you follow the wall board manufacturers recommendation for stud spacing any wall board flex between the studs is a non-issue.
