20 Deck take it to the core

Sean at 20 Deck Records is launching the biggest ever UK compilation cd. Here is what he told Punktastic: “To The Core” is the name of our next compilation and it’s set to be one of the biggest UK punk comps of recent times. This double-CD UK-only compilation will showcase an expected 50-60 UK softcore and hardcore bands (with all the usual suspects + some of the best hidden talent we’ve uncovered) and will be in stores mid-December ’02. There will be something special about this comp, but it is top secret at the moment so everyone will just have to wait and see. We’re also attempting to gather a list of every UK punk band in existance to include in the sleeve credits, so email: [email protected] with your band’s name if you want to appear. Demos for this comp must be sent on CD to: 20 Deck / PO Box 451 / York / YO10 5YR / UK before November 15th 2002.”

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
