I'd go with Pink Floyd (my favourite band and also out of loyalty - my
daughter sang with one of the best of the PF tribute bands).  However, I'd
have good coffee (even in the remote bush I always had the best!, a few
terrific birds as well as the 'weird deep sea fish' (it's like a lucky
dip!), and company of the sort that Helen Larson could provide!
