Wellington legend Oli Brooke-White knows a thing or two about cycling, and his musical morés are every bit as refined as his knowledge of bottom bracket standards, Campagnolo bottle openers and who won the Tour de france in 1938. You’d never get bored stuck on an island with Oli…

The Rolling Stones – Let It Bleed

The-Rolling-Stones-Let-It-Bleed-album-cover

Beginning to end a masterpiece, and one that never fails to remind me of being a kid in the 70s.

LCD Soundsystem – Sound of Silver

Sound-of-Silver1

Clever, quirky lyrical genius set to funky electro-disco beats.

David Bowie – Heroes

1david-bowie-heroes

The man who fell to Earth and shot up heroin to make awesome music with Brian Eno.

Beck – Sea Change

Beck-Sea-Change-Delantera

One of my favourite country albums ever.

Because the original isn’t angry enough to express how I feel about being stuck on this fucking island.
