THE PADDINGTONS ‘50 to A ’ Gobeat 9871846 (2005)

The Paddingtons

The Paddingtons are another band hot off The Libertines-esque bandwagon complete with the mandatory grot and roll lyrics and Clash-isms. Although regularly referred to as London scenesters, the five piece Paddingtons actually hail from sunny Hull.

The single 50 To a is upbeat and provides 3.04 minutes of no frills pure indie fun, begging for it to be danced to by every indie kid wanting to do their knackered Converse proud.

Although lead singer Tom Atkins cannotactually sing in tune, the rawness of his voice adds to the grot and roll element and makes the lyrics ring out and become hard hitting. The single contains classic energy fuelled power pop contrasted with dirty rock and roll. Although this has been done before, 50 to a stands out and provides a anthem released just in time for the summer.

Review by Charlie Antczak

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
