DEVIL’S ISLAND featuring No Worth Of Man

DEVIL'S ISLAND featuring No Worth Of Man

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 No Worth Of Man 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. 

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?

Gareth: Easy! Would be our new EP ‘What’s Your Damage?’ cos I never get bored of listening to it!

Peter: I would have to go with Close to the Edge by Yes as I'm definitely on a bit of a 70's Prog kick at the moment. Also, the front cover is green so it may come in handy if I need to hide behind it for my own safety away from my cannibalistic band members.

Alex: Tough question straight off the mark! Tool 10,000 days would do for me. I think it would be a good choice if you’re chilling on an island

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?

Gareth: For me, Lateralus by Tool. Be interesting to stare at while I consider whittling a canoe out of a palm tree.

Peter: Probably something with some lovely looking ladies (80's era Motley Crue?) as we all get the urge, right?

Alex: Rainbow Rising! I know this was the start of the ‘dungeons and dragons’ sorcery that became a cliche later down the line but I love that album artwork and that era. It would give me the hope that I can survive like Tom Hanks in Castaway

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?

Gareth: There is only one choice in this situation, and it has to be beer! Preferably Veltins – a cheeky German Pilsner that should really be named Da Bollocks! I could never get bored of drinking that. Plus, we would need to keep ourselves entertained, and as a famous person once said, “no good story, ever started with a salad!”

Peter: Newcastle Bown Ale. Looks like a puddle so it may put me in good stead when the supply runs out and I'm left to drink rainwater from the ground.

Alex: Hardest question so far. I mean….without water you’d die, but I would still probably with a nice crisp cold pint of Stella Artois.

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?

Gareth: Has to be our new EP – ‘Whats Your Damage?’

Peter: A slipknot mask so that I can use it to scare off any potential tribes that want to cook me for their dinner.

Alex: My lamb of god T shirt that is 3 sizes too small

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?

Gareth: If I had to be shipwrecked for an eternity who better to be shipwrecked with than your band? Ray Mears would be a close second.

Peter: No one really as I probably get on with my bandmates better than I do with anyone else I know.

Alex: To be fair, I think we would be a good mix. We make up the pessimist, the optimist and the middleman. I’ll let you guess who is who. I think we would have a good chance of surviving!

DEVIL’S ISLAND featuring No Worth Of Man

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?

Gareth: Hendrix at Woodstock

Peter: Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, without a doubt.

Alex: If it’s one that I’ve been to, Gary Moore, strat pack concert 2004 playing red house. Honestly the best guitar playing live I’ve heard. Literal goosebumps. It was a great gig.

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?

Gareth: I would say the Police. They have experience with messages in bottles so would know what to do

Peter: Yep, I agree with that.

Alex: I guess Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden, purely because he can fly a plane so might have a chance of landing a little Cessna on the island!

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?

Gareth: I would sacrifice myself. If you get stuck with me long enough you would probably think the same haha especially drunk me!

Peter: Al, all day (would probably take all day to cut him up in fact as he's quite a unit).

Alex: I would do the honourable thing to sacrifice both G and Pete. It would just be the right thing to do.

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?

Gareth: Luckily for me, both the people who have inspired me and influenced my career are already on the island. So, I would save the Chef!

Peter: Probably Jimi Hendrix again as I can't think of a single person that has had more of an effect and influence on the history of music.

Alex: Toni Iommi. Absolute godfather of riffs.
