DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring Brazen Bull
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 Suffolk rockers Brazen Bull sat on the beach. The island is far from their home, but how did he end up here and how did he 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?
Luke: The Strange Case Of… by Halestorm. If I’m being stranded on a desert island with 4 other blokes I’d like that female connection.
Hayden: Jason Becker - Perpetual Burn, because I already have to deal with enough people talking with these guys that an instrumental album is my only peace
Jordan: Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare - Beautiful production - Brilliant concept - also has Vincent Price voice acting on it, Can't get any better than that
Alex: Either The Who’s Tommy or Dream Theater’s Metropolis Pt. 2 Scenes From A Memory, cant decide!
Charlie: Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. It’s a true masterpiece from start to finish and holds a massive place in my heart
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?
Luke: The spaghetti incident? by GNR as whenever I’m eating whatever god forsaken food on this island I can at least look at the poster and pretend I’m eating spaghetti
Hayden: The Odyssey because I can dream of it's ship taken me far away from being trapped with these guys
Jordan: Iron Maiden’s Somewhere In Time. The reason behind it is because the more you look at it the more you details you discover.
Alex: Psychostick’s Sandwich. It’s not a poster it’s a sandwich!
Charlie: Number of the Beast, the artwork is incredible and it’ll remind me of the incredible tunes on the album
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?
Luke: Porn Star Martini
Jordan: Trooper Red and The Black Porter
Alex: Sex on the Beach
Your suitcases were lost when your ship sank, but you each managed to salvage one item of band merch. What’s the merch and for what band?
Alex: Does Kiss have umbrellas?
Luke: AC/DC Leather jacket, for a little bit of protection when fighting wild animal
Hayden: Metallica back cap cause I never go anywhere without it and it doubles for protection from the sun
Jordan: My trustee Motorhead long trench coat, Keeps me warm and it can act as a blanket to help with sleep
Charlie: Katy Perry shirt!
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?
Alex: The Dreadcrew Of Oddwood!
Luke: Taylor Swift
Hayden: An actual Brazen Bull
Charlie: Definitely Alestorm, the lads have an entire song about it
Jordan: My Partner
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?
Alex: Metallica Binge and Purge Live!
Hayden: Same! Metallica Binge and Purge Live
Jordan: Porcupine Tree - Arriving Somewhere live 2005
Luke: What’s a walkman? Queen at Live Aid
Charlie: Iron Maiden Legacy of the Beast. Absolutely loved it!
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 most suitable for a rescue attempt. Who is it?
Alex: Anyone from The Dreadcrew of Oddwood! Because Pirates!
Luke: Bruce Dickinson because the man can fly a plane
Charlie: Gotta be The Police on this one. Sting, he knows about this stuff
Hayden: Judas Priest because electric eye always knows where we are
Jordan: Nicko Mcbrain - He also knows how to fly a plane plus would be a right laugh
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?
Alex: I’ll sacrifice myself since I’m rocking the dad bod.
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?
Alex: Tom Waits
Luke: Slash, the man is just pure talent on legs
Charlie: Dave Murray. Couldn’t imagine a life without stealing licks from his solos
Hayden: Chuck Schuldiner or Jason Becker?
Jordan: Animal from The Muppets - Utter Legend
