The robot Panic Attack was a contestant on Robot Wars for six years from Series 2-7. It was best known for winning Series 2, and continuing to be a strong competitor in later competitions. It was a short, box-shaped robot painted yellow (or gold on some occasions) with a large black spider on the top of the machine.
The Panic Attack (EP) was originally released by itself, but now only available as a bonus disc with the Grinspoon album New Detention. The EP was released after Grinspoon recorded a cover of the INXS hit, Don't Change for the soundtrack for the Australian film Danny Deckchair. The recording and release was relatively rushed between the New Detention and Thrills, Kills & Sunday Pills albums.
Panic Attack, released in the UK on April 4, 2005, is the first single to be taken from the debut album First Comes First by Kingston upon Hull band The Paddingtons. It is the band's second single, 21 being their debut which was later re-recorded for the album.
