This is the part of "Paintbox" where, basically, we identify twenty or so interesting tracks that have caught our attention recently. However! This is not actually as much of a case of "money for old rope" as it might appear to be, and the 'tracklisting' usually takes on quite a broad scope. For example, the one in the most recent issue (number 28) featured Supergrass, Rattles, The Tagues, Eggstone, The United States Of America, John Otway, Love, The Kinks, The Barbarians, Snowboy, Super Furry Animals, The James Taylor Quartet, Jethro Tull, Traffic, Los Bravos, Frank Zappa, Corduroy, Mother Earth, Corky And The Juice Pigs, and Mark Knopfler. In the past, we have featured artists as diverse as Black Sabbath and Roger Whittaker (seriously!). It's pointless trying to include a 'typical' In Sound From Way Out listing here, as I would probably end up having to update it every three minutes. Instead, below are couple of contributors and associates who have nominate twenty tracks that they consider to be ever so slightly good. Again, they'll probably have all changed their minds in three minutes time...
