The Paddingtons – Sorry

The Housemartins, Salako and now the Paddingtons. Looks like Hull is building a nice little musical heritage for itself. Bit more than that if you were to go by Poptones supremo Alan McGee’s wide eyed assessment of the latter band. He’s off the mark of course (and who can blame him for backing one of his own bands), like he was when he labelled Mogwai’s ‘Mr. Beast’ as good as MBV’s ‘Loveless’. But, to his credit there are certainly nuggets to be panned on ‘First Comes First’, the Paddingtons debut album. ‘Sorry’ (produced by Stephen Street) has all the attendant punk trappings, Tom Atkin has the attitude and the music is infested with a sack full of blistering riffs. Nothing particularly new but its hard to be critical when a band can expend energy and make it burst forth from a speaker like a herd of Wilderbeast. KD

    Hull is also famous for Mick Ronson and Fine Young Cannibals’ Roland Gift. How’s that for a record?
