Paola2When Uber Rock’s Ross Welford reviewed ‘Dreams Come True’ the all new album from Italian singer/guitarist Paola Pellegrini he name dropped such legends as Joan Jett and the Ramones amongst his words of wisdom.

Having already shared stages with the likes of Feed The Rhino, Orestea and Malefice we thought it about time to ask the five piece to share something with Uber Rock via the mystical medium of the mixtape. Here, ladies and gentlemen are the lads thirteen selections.
