So, here at EBC Brakes We like to offer a free set of pads each month to a randomly selected forum member.

In past giveaways We have discussed our first cars, garage and storage spaces, famous people we have met or would like to have met and weird and wonderful vehicles amongst other topics.

We have been discussing amongst the EBC team music recently, and for the September pad (front or rear set) giveaway I would like to start a discussion about your desert island discs; If you were stranded on a desert island with only THREE records (and assuming a means to play them), what would you choose and why? Let us know the story behind your choice, if they have significant meaning to you or simply because its a killer song/album!

My choice would be;

The Beatles - The Yellow Submarine Soundtrack. Favourite song - Nowhere Man : I used to watch the cartoon-film with my Grandad when I was young, and although not an actual album, it has a sense of nostalgia for me.

Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced. Favourite song - Red House : Rock music was all I would listen to as a kid, and this would 100% get me through any hard times stranded on an island!

Jurassic 5 - Power in Numbers. Favourite song - What's Golden : One of the first hip-hop albums I ever listened to that really made me fall in love with the Genre.


The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced within a few days after the closing date of 1st October 2021 and details will be posted on this forum within a few days of the closing date.

Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.
Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, remember EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER
This discount code can be redeemed at EBC Brakes Direct | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Brake Discs or with our USA partners at Perfect Brakes | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Rotors


Any questions or application issues please let us know.

GOOD LUCK………

Hmmm. This is a good one!!

I’d have to say

Pinback- Concrete Seconds. Very emotional album with a lot of layers, I’d have to say Tres is my favorite song on there or maybe Concrete Seconds. Assuming we are dying on this island, any of those songs would do I suppose.

Modest Mouse - This is a Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About. Lots of layers, lots of different types of songs on one album, and lots of memories tied to it.

Atlus Sound Team: Persona 5 Original Sound Track. There are songs in there for every mood and it’s some excellent jazz fusion! Great game and I don’t even like JRPGs but it’s life changing

Only 3 huh? Ok then....
Endless Forms Most Beautiful by Nightwish. Best song being The Greatest Show on Earth. If you've never heard of these guys(odds are you haven't), I highly recommend checking them out! The music is so captivating and emotional. You can't stop listening once you start
S&M by Metalica. Can't pick a fave song off that but probably either One or No Leaf Clover. The reason I chose this one: What's more cool that Metalica playing with a symphony?!?!
Third choice is Dreamtheater Live at Budokan. These guys are musical geniuses!! You ever hear an instrumental song that has 108 time signature changes in it???

RUSH - 2112
This Album was my first introduction to RUSH. The whole thing just flowed from one "song" to the next...same with my next 2 choices! (read the lyrics to fully engage all) headphones encouraged. Bad Ass

Pink Floyd - Animals
All albums, (Wish You Were Here 2nd) but Animals is my favorite with headphones. Reminds me of the time of my cross county trek from West coast to East coast in a van with some neighbors I just met. Good times! 😉

Robin Trower - Bridge of Sighs
WOW what can I say...BEST headphone music to chill with!!!!!
Really puts me in a good up-beat to laid back mood!

Lets not forget...
Led Zeppelin (all)
And Metallica!
