Post 1 of 39
- 8 music albums
- One book (the complete works of Shakespeare and the Bible are already on the island)
- One luxury item.
Also none of these items can be chosen to aid your survival, only to make it more bearable and you should provide a short reason for choosing each.
So mine would be:
Appetite for Destruction - Guns'n'Roses: Purely because it's one of the most rock and roll albums ever. Mmmm Slash.
Grace - Jeff Buckley: One of the most beautiful voices ever and fantastic musicianship. Really emotive stuff
Origin of Symmetry - Muse: My favourite band and their best album in by opinion, noisy and agressive riffery
Battle of Los Angeles - Rage Against the Machine: For the excellent guitar wankery of Tom Morello as well as letting everyone who listens to it feel like they're "fighting the power" as it were. Noisy and aggressive.
Any Minute Now - Soulwax: Belgians + Synths= no explanation required
The Bends - Radiohead: A fantastic mix of mellow emotiotive stuff and loud guitar wierdness. Johnny Greenwood is something of a hero of mine.
Contraband - Velvet Revolver: See no1
Permission to Land - The Darkness: Silly childish and OTT but very catchy and very fun to listen to. Managing to write a power ballad about herpes is also quite an achievement.
Book: 1984 - George Orwell: I was told by a teacher that I'm legally illiterate until I read it and having nothing else to distract me might let me get round to it.
Luxury item: My guitar because I can't seem to go 5 minutes before feeling the urge to start jamming.
Now your turn.
