Saw them for first time today on MTV2. Not sure which track it was.

Sounded like The Strokes.

Anyone else heard much by them and what do you think?

Not enjoyable in my opinion. I seem to remember them getting a bit of attention not long after Razorlight's album release and fortunately they soon disappeared. They're not the worst band, but I just didn't find them enjoyable.

They've been getting played on that Spanking New bit lately, well at least I saw a video by them earlier. Quite a good video, although one of the members really wouldn't look out of place in Dexy's Midnight Runners.

Iv heard the Paddingtons...they come from the same town as me, they always do free promotional stuff at HMV like play songs and sign albums, so I normally go and check them out. Its nice to see a band from Hull being big, other than the Beatiful South

The Paddingtons are great, can't wait to get their album! Good to see a great new band come out of HULL!

one of my fav. bands.
and some of my homies. lol
anyway, i think they are talented.
and although everyone argues that pete d is making them climb the ranks, they haven't done much to show it.
i think most of the songs they have brough out so far are worthy of a listen.

They're pretty ace live, and the album is ok.

I mean, they arn't about to change the world or owt, but an ok band.
