Vashti Bunyan

recorded several 7"s in the late 60s and the album «Just Another Diamond Day» in 1969, which all flopped. It was more than 30 years later that the Nu Folk movement (lead by Devendra Banhart) rediscovered the beauty of the British singer and rereleased said album. Today Bunyan is recording again, this time quite succesfully.

If you were stranded on a deserted island you would...
take these three books along:

«ProTools for Dummies». It needs soooooo much time / «Miracles». A book of children’s poems from the 1960s / A large but concise encyclopedia.

take these three CDs/records with you:
Lambchop - Nixon

This is one of my all time favourite albums.

Bob Dylan - Freewheelin’

The first music that taught me about the world outside my protected upbringing.

Joanna Newsom - Ys

Because it needs a lot of time to listen to and really get it all.

take these three DVDs along:

«Expresso Bongo» – a film about the music business in early 60s London which I saw the night before being shipped off to boarding school and it stayed with me as the first inklings of the dream I had to be a pop singer / «Bambi» affected me deeply as a child and made me feel protective towards animals. / «The Dark Crystal» (by Muppets’ director Jim Henson and Frank Oz). An important film in my own children’s young years.

take these three games along:

cards for Solitaire / Gameboy (see above for how to keep it charged up). Because I love the tune on the first SuperMario – it reminds me of my youngest son; and I used to be addicted to Tetris) / Fivestones. That’s supposing there is only sand on this desert island and no pebbles. I spent hours perfecting my technique with this game as a child.

start to learn these three things:

to play the piano / to dance / to be patient

subscribe to these three newspapers / magazines:

Guardian / Los Angeles Times / Uncut

miss these three things the most about living in a city:

The noise of people / Roads that lead to anywhere / Endless supply of teabags, milk and biscuits just over the road.

invite these three persons for a weekend:

Leif, Whyn and Benjamin – my three children. Because they all live in different parts of the world and I rarely see them all in one place at the same time.

get these three pets:

I have no animals around me at the moment, but if I could bring some of my old dears back it would be Indie the Whippet, Molly the Lurcher and Blue my first dog.

learn these three songs by heart:
Bob Dylan - Ballad Of A Thin Man
David Crosby - Traction In The Rain
Lambchop - Up With People
take these three tools with you:

piano (grand – could double as house) / guitar / a small treadmill generator to charge batteries for phone, laptop, speakers etc... These are the tools of my trade so I’m not cheating that badly with this question).
