All’s not happy in wonder-land

Swedish post-hardcore band Wonderland Demention Dept have lost two original members. In a statement the band wrote: “During this summers’ recordings of material for the upcoming album The Awkward Silence it has become more and more evident that not everyone in the band can make the same priorities concerning the band. Personal reasons has made Damir and Jonas to leave the Wonderland Dementation Dept. This decision has been made on the best of terms and all involved parties are proud of the music created, from the Low Budget Self-Titled Debut EP to the new material scheduled for recording in late 2003. Christian and Daniel are currently busy finding the right guitarist and drummer to fill the vacancies and to begin the recordings.”

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.
