Desert Island Discs: Episode Seven, featuring our Financial Planner Brian Howard:
It was a very tough choice to narrow my songs down to just eight, but here they are!
Disc One: Light My Fire – The Doors
This makes the cut just because it makes me want to ‘boogie’!
Disc Two: Heliosphan – Aphex Twin
Who said ambient music was boring…..?!!
Disc Three: Goo Goo Much – The Cramps
From the Off The Bone album. It was difficult for me to choose a song from this band, from the likes of Good Taste, Human Fly etc. This makes me want to get up and stamp my feet.
Disc Four: Green Onions – Booker T and the MGs
I loved the film Quadrophenia and Sting dancing to this track.
Disc Five: Public Image – Public Image Ltd (PiL)
Punk produced some brilliant music. This is just one of many.
Disc Six: She Sells Sanctuary – The Cult
Not a good song for driving to – because my speed rises when this is on!
Disc Seven: I Wanna Be Adored – The Stone Roses
This was a good time in music [when The Stone Roses released their debut album] and this another great tune to dance to.
Disc Eight: Ceremony – New Order
Joy Division are one of my favourite bands. New Order grew out of their sad demise and this is a Joy Division song that they play.
Choice of Book: A Survival Guide For Life, by Bear Grylls.
I was never a scout – so this will help me light a fire!
If there could be such a thing, a wind-up ipod would be great, to play my music……oh, with a set of large speakers please!
