Radio 4 has announced that it's seeking the 8 discs that listeners would like to be cast away with.

In light of this, what 8 discs, book and luxury would my fellow Arrsers like to be cast away with?

Mine are;

Alternative Ulster - Stiff Little Fingers
Dark End Of The Street - Moving Hearts
Apache Tears - Johnny Cash
I Useta Lover - Saw Doctors
Telephone in Her Car - Weddings Parties Anything
A New England - Billy Bragg
Too Much Too Young - Specials
Gyda Gwen - Catatonia.

Book - It's not yet been produced, but a Terry Pratchett anthology would be good.

Luxury - Either (a) A constantly refilled drinks cabinet, or Kate Rusby with a guitar.

Over to you.

Music -

Underdog - kasabian
Unfinished sympathy - massive attack
Tom Hark - the piranhas
Warriors Dance - prodigy
Reign - Ian brown
Going underground - the jam
My my my - Armand van Helden
Club foot - kasabian

Basically the first 8 tracks on my 'getting ready to go out' playlist.

Book - The Illiad.

Luxury - Probably an X-box with an internet connection.
 
#3
Stoned And I Missed It - Dr Hook
Johnny Was - The Stiffs
Shooting Star - Bad Company
Heard It Through The Grapevine - CCR
I Wish It Would Rain - The Temptations
Copperhead Road - Steve Earl
Killing In The Name Of - Rage Against The Machine
Samba Pa Ti - Santana

(A bit of a cliché but) To Kill A Mockingbird.

Solar powered, lappy with web (read only) access (preferably Mac).


P.S. I like these threads as it gives me targets to, erm, sample from the virtual world.

So lets get this right. You are going to take Alizee with you so she can do the fishing. Are the weapons to do her in and butcher her if she is crap at fishing? Good idea as at least you will have some food. I cant work out why the sat phone though, is it so you can arrange for a replacement if French fishing skills are not up to scratch?

By the time I'd finished with her the tidy litle frog nymphomaniac would be warbling like a scratched wax Edison cylinder of Edith Piaf with a mouth full of rancid monk and if I ever got really really bored with that and the island proved to be free of large game, well killing french people does still hold it's attraction.

Yeah I mean once you've got settled in and spent 48 hours shooting, fisting, chopping up, roasting and casseroling Alizé.....then what?
Then I'd prepare a nice warm welcome for the French search parties who'd be bound to come looking for her.....
