Devil's Island featuring Video Nasties.
Welcome to this weeks edition of Devil's Island! Every week we maroon a band or artist on the island and see what they get up to, how they cope with being all alone on a small island in the middle of the ocean. It's not your average desert island and we'll see just how each person copes with the extreme conditions.
This week when we arrived at Devil's Island we found Scouse horror noise outfit Video Nasties sat on the beach. Missing persons reports had been filed, we had seen no trace of them, we thought they may have fallen victim to a story line from one of the horror films they love so much, yet today we find him washed up on our island!
How did they cope with life on Devil's Island? Find out now...
Welcome to The Razors'e Edge and our somewhat lovely, warm desert island. Don't worry about it's name I'm sure it's not as bad as that would suggest.
So you're marooned here on this island, but before you ended up shipwrecked you chose one album that you couldn't live without. Which album did you each chose and why?
Dave: “Nu med" by Balkan Beat Box. Has to be my most listened to album to date. Amazing musicality, interesting time signitures and perfect for fun in the sun.
Rick: I’m gonna have to go with Deftones - Diamond Eyes. It has a little of everything on there so no matter what mood I was in I’d be a happy camper... also I stand by the saying “every day is a Deftones a day”
Tommy: Cutthroat self titled album from like 1987 I think? As it’s SO metal, everyone would be so pumped! Desperately trying to find food, and other herbal remedies.
Damian: I grabbed Beastmilk’s Climax as it’s a modern day classic, and if I’m stranded on an Island, I’m probably gonna wanna dance whilst I’m going batshit from attempting to drink salty sea water. The album distills pretty much everything I love about Goth or punk and melds the two together in an orgy of awesomeness.
Stu: Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Got everything you'd want from an album.
Just behind that palm tree is a shack for each of you to stay in, with enough space for you to put up a poster on the wall of one album cover. What album cover do you each chose?
There's also a bar on this here island. But alas each of you only get to chose one drink for the entirety of your stay. What's your tipple of choice?
Your suitcases were lost when your ship sank, but you each managed to salvage one item of band merch. Whats the merch and for what band?
You're sat on the island thinking "I'm stuck here on this island with my bandmates for eternity"... who would you rather have been shipwrecked with?
There's a walkman in your pocket, on the tape inside is the recording of the one live show that stands out for you. It could be any show, from any band, anywhere in the world. What show is on that walkman?
You're getting desperate, you decide the only course of action is to put a message in a bottle and hope someone finds it. Your message could be to any member of any band, but should be the one musician most suitable for a rescue attempt. Who is it?
You've been stuck here for a while and food supplies are running low. There's only one thing for it... which fellow band member gets sacrificed to help the others survive?
Finally, when the ship sank you each managed to save one person from the wreckage. That person is the one musician that has influenced your career the most, shaped your way of thinking and your outlook on life. Who did you save?
Sadly there was no room on our boat so we had to leave the lads behind on the island. Will they get back before eating each other? That's anyones guess. Whether they do or not, their new album 'Dominion' is out on APF Records on Friday 13th!
