Punktastic was formed in 2000, and though the staff has changed, the mission hasn’t.

We’re a committed and dedicated group of passionate music fans that enjoy talking about punk, rock, metal, and hardcore. Punktastic is our labour of love. We try to always tell the truth and do what we can to improve the scene.

Paul Savage founded the site back in 2000, leaving in 2010. New owner/publisher James Brown took over and worked with editor Tom Aylott (plus all our other amazing editors, writers and contributors) until 2014 when Ben Tipple succeeded him as editor.
