Desert Island Discs: 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!


Luxury item:

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!
