Desert Island Disks: Greg Wilkinson
This months castaway is the one and only, Greg Wilkinson, our Students' Union President!
Top 3 Albums
Johnny Cash - American III: Solitary Man Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin II Robbie Williams – Sing When You’re Winning
“It was a hard choice not to put some Pink Floyd in there but Johnny Cash and Led Zeppelin just took the lead. And Robbie Williams for many reasons.”
Number 1 song
Aha – Take on Me.
“Love a bit of Norwegian synth-pop.”
Meryn Peake –Gormenghast Dante - Inferno Frank Herbert – Dune
“Gormenghast is an amazingly hyperrealist creation that everyone should go and read now. I deliberated between Paradise Lost and Inferno but settled with the latter because it’s a bit more fun. I’ve just finished Dune so I’m a little bit obsessed. Just don’t watch the David Lynch film adaptation.”
The Madness of King George Apocalypse Now The Incredibles
“The Madness of King George has a great cast/director/writer and is honed from West End performances making for an energetic and witty film. Apocalypse Now slightly makes up for the fact that I didn’t put any Joseph Conrad in my book selection. The Incredibles is just amazing on all fronts.”
Rembrandt - Belshazzar's Feast
“It was easy to choose a painter but not the painting. I went with this one just because it was the first Rembrandt painting I ever saw.”
