DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring Vaya
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 find Vaya sat on the beach. The island is far from her home, so how did she end up here and how did she 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?
Well I would say 'Crystal Ship' The Doors: how can you go on a boat trip without a crystal piece? Jim voice would probably call the mermaids that would help us to find our way: he has a mystical charisma!
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?
I would put 'Live in Buenos Aires' of Coldplay; it sounds perfect with the natural landscape we are surrounded.
There's also a bar on this here island. But alas each of you only get to choose one drink for the entirety of your stay. What's your tipple of choice?
Grenadine syrup from my childhood!
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?
A feather from Buffy Sainte Marie
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?
My husky 🙂
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?
Of course, the one from the Doors in 1968 at the Bowl!
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?
The singer of Sigur Ros, I'm sure he is faster than an eagle 😉
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?
Well we are only two so no choice to say, my drummer 😀
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?
GOD, if only Jim M. was still alive I will save him a thousand of times!!!!!
All my L.O.V.E.
