Deconstruction exclusive!

I am far too nice to you people. Here, exclusive to Punktastic, is more info about the forthcoming Deconstruction Festival. Confirmed to play are: NOFX, *secret surprise TBC*, Boysetsfire, Bouncing Souls, Thrice, TSOL, Real McKenzies, Fabulous Disaster + 2 UK bands. If you’ve read any different anywhere else, they’ve lied! This is the OFFICIAL line-up. On top of that BMXers Zach Shaw, Stefan Giesler and John Taylor and skaters Ali Cairns, Pete King, Dave Allen and Jocke Olson will also be doing their thing. Still no word on UK dates and venues, but the rumour is June 6 and 7. We shall keep you posted. And for those concerned about the whereabouts of the Deconstruction official website, their server company went bust – hopefully it will return on Monday.

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.
