The best interview ever

In my eyes one of the best zines out there is www.pastepunk.com run by our good friend Jordan Baker. I know I always promote the site on here, so we decided to interview each other, discussing the world of punk rock. Here is the first of the two interviews, arguably the best insight into the...

That’s a nice surprise…

If you are just about to go to the Dashboard Confessional/Saves The Day gig in London, you may be gutted to know that Finch have just this minute left the stage. The hard-rocking amigos were a late addition to the bill, which Face To Face are about to rock. ...

Apologies from the fish

From www.reelbigfish.com: "Due to travel delays for our friend Ryland Steen in Dublin who is filling in for Reel Big Fish drummer Carlos de la Garza, Reel Big Fish was forced missed their set today at Leeds. After asking everyone possible and being unable to move the bands set time, the band was...

The aftermath…

So it's all on the news this morning - that hundreds rioted at Temple Newsam in Leeds last night after setting fire to two toilet blocks. Loads of rumours are flying around that someone died in the violence, a policeman had his nose broken and that dozens were arrested. I just wanted to say thank...

Rock Star phone calls…

So I'm watching the awesome The Get Up Kids at Leeds when my mobile goes off and I'm rudely interrupted (only kidding Sami...) to discover that Jerry-Built will be supporting the Lawrence Arms on their winter UK tour. At least I think that's what he said, some random indie band that sounded crap...

No Use secret show tonight

Fresh from a triumphant show at yesterday's Leeds festival, No Use For A Name will headline a 'secret' show TONIGHT at the Patti Pavillion in Swansea. They also play the Mean Fiddler in London on September 4. ...

Coheed split?

Absolutepunk.net write on their website that Coheed and Cambria have split up. No official confirmation as of yet......

So the rumours are true…

As we told you a month ago, Good Charlotte are playing a one-off UK date in September. Benji and the boys will play the Camden Monarch on September 6. Tickets are £6....

Wanted… these bands!

Last night I was at the Scunthorpe Rock Open (where you can see Milk2Sugars in 2 weeks time) and I came across two absolutely brilliant bands - two of the best unsigned groups I have come across in ages. The first were SUBONYX, a pop-punk trio from Scunthorpe, playing The Starting Line-influenced...

Nada Surf climb the vines

Nada Surf will support The Vines on their October and November UK tour. Dates and tickets are available from all the usual online outlets....

Visit these cracking sites, you know you want to…

OK, so everyone's gone off to Reading and Leeds (I'll be there on Sunday!) so to tide over the time until everyone returns, check out these three sites. First up is a new site I came across last week at www.rockingthescene.com which has a nice layout and is loaded with news. Worth checking out. ...

Weezer go cd in the uk

Vandals for October release

The Vandals will release 'Internet Dating Superstuds' in the UK on October 14, and not in September as other people may tell you. Punktastic has a copy of the new record and it's darn good. Catch the band live in November with Audio Karate and Tsunami Bomb and look out for a review of the new...
