Carter leaves Mad Caddies

In shock news, it has been said that Carter from ska-punk heroes the Mad caddies has left the band. There is no news yet on whether or not he will be replaced. And no reason has actually been given for Carter’s decision, even though he left this statement on the Mad Cads website: “So yeah its true I’m not gonna play anymore in the band. People have been emailing and asking if its true. It is. Its been a blast and the rest of the guys will be holding the torch and rocking your town real soon. To answer a lot of your questions, yes I will still be doing Sweet Action stuff. I’m hoping to turn it into a sort of side band where any Caddies, past, present and future, can put out music under a different name. Everybody needs a little Sweet Action after all.” -Carter

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.
