DEVIL’S ISLAND featuring Smoking Martha

DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring Smoking Martha

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 Smoking Martha sat on the beach. The island is far from their home, so how did they end up here and 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?

Tasha D: Lana Del Rey - Norman fucking Rockwell - cause its a great album and get so many emotions from each song.
Matty: Van Halen - 5150, cause it’s the greatest ever
Mick: AFI - The Art Of Drowning- It's sad, joyous, angry and hopeful all in one!

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?

Tasha D: Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Live at Woodstock cause Anthony Kiedis was a huge babe and he’s wearing nothing but a sock on his shlong on it….
Matty: Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil
Mick: Cream - Disraeli Gears

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?

Tasha D: Prosecco
Matty: A bottle of Jameson’s
Mick: Bloody Mary cause you can drink it for breakfast

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?

Tasha D: Van Halen t-shirt - from when I saw them in New York with David Lee Roth
Matty: The Misfits - Black crimson ghost tee shirt
Mick: He Is Legend - Endless Bummer long sleeve 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?

Tasha D: No one I love my band mates!!
Matty: Nah I’d be fine with my band mates
Mick: Anyone at all but Matty, that guy sucks! Maybe trade him in for Lemmy!

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?

Tasha D: Fleetwood Mac on the Rumours tour
Matty: Extreme Live in Japan
Mick: Jimi Hendrix Live at Monterey 1967

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?

Tasha D: Tom Morello
Matty: Bruce Dickinson, that dude can fly a plane!
Mick: Yeah I'm with Matty, Get flown home on the Ed Force One!

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?

Tasha D: Probably me lol
Matty: I’ll take the fall for them
Mick: Sounds like everyone will take the fall for me!!

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?

Tasha D: Gwen Stefani
Matty: Eddie Van Halen
Mick: Davey Havok
