THE PADDINGTONS Back To The Bus DMC (2006)

Now here's a strange release. It's a compilation put together by The Paddingtons of tracks they listen to while on the road. Tour bus songs that have inspired them and kept them sane between gigs.

And as a bonus it includes an exclusive track from their new album sessions.

On most occasions a fifteen-track selection of someone else's choice of material is not my idea of a great listen. But from the opening Search And Destroy by Iggy And The Stooges, it's a damn good listen that hangs together really well.

OK, every track's not a winner but there's some really interesting stuff on offer including The Libertines, The Cribs, Joy Division, and The Clash (the superb Train In Vain).

And there's a number of tracks that leave you wanting to explore further The Cribs infectious Things Are Gonna Change, 5 O'Clock Heroes - Skin Deep, The Rakes - We Are All Animals, Graham Coxon - Don't Be A Stranger, the magnificent Hovercraft by The Holy Orders, and the enthralling Lazy Conversations by The Mouldy Peaches.

And then there's the tracks you're familiar with but haven't heard for ages - The Modern Lovers - Roadrunner, The Housemartins - Me & The Farmer, The Ventures wonderful Hawaii Five O, The Buzzcocks classic - Never Fallen In Love.

And as for the 'new' Paddingtons track - Kill A Fashion Killer - well, it fits perfectly with all the aforementioned tracks. And that's high praise indeed.
