PADDY KINGSLAND is an ELECTRONIC MUSIC composer.best known for being a member of THE BBC RADIOPHONIC WORKSHOP and for his work for 1970's TELEVISION shows such as DOCTOR WHO,THE CHANGES and THE HITCHHICKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY.He eschewed the MUSIQUE CONCRETE approach of the early workshop musicians and utilised synthesisers like the EMS VCS 3 and the EMS SYNTHI 100 to make catchy and tuneful music.A good example of his work is ''TEARAWAY'' which was recorded for the MUSIC LIBRARY label AMPHONIC MUSIC and was presumably used to accompany news footage and dramatized portrayals of young FOOTBALL HOOLIGANS and other JUVENILE DELINQUENTS
