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………

AC/DC Back in Black - one of, if not the best rock bands. Angus and Malcolm were brilliant.

Talking Heads - Speaking in Tongues. Great to drive to and sing along.

The Clash - Combat Rock. Hard to pick one album from The Clash. If pressed, this is the best one.

1. Legend - The Best Of Bob Marley And The Wailers

Super uplifting music that is great for just about any type of mood you are in. Never gets old no matter how many times I listen to it. Think back to I Am Legend with Will Smith.. he was playing it after being the last human on the planet for some uplifting music.

2. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles

Another great album that works under any mood or situation. Short and sweet album with great melody to get your toes tapping and remind you of good old days. Another album that never gets old no matter how many times you listen.


3. The Ultimate Experience - Jimi Hendrix

Great classic rock album featuring some of the best guitar work ever recorded. Really puts me in a good mood and let's me get lost in the music. It also never gets old, no matter how many times I listen to it.

4. Greatest Hits The Steve Miller Band

Another great album to put you in a better mood and remind you of good times. Never gets old.

5. The Wall - Pink Floyd

Total trip of an album that stands out from the crowd. Really enjoy getting lost in this psychedelic album.

6. Houses of the Holy - Led Zeppelin

Classic rock at its best. Great vocals and guitar work that will keep you coming back for more.
