Deconstruction Tour is on… and guess who is playing…

European cities will once again be playing host to the Deconstruction punk and ska festival in 2002.

And Punktastic can tell you who exactly is going to be on the bill.

Last year the festival was held in Glasgow, Manchester and London and played host to Pennywise, Lagwagon and Sick Of It All to name just three bands.

But 2002 could well be the best year yet. As of this moment, only No Use For A Name have been confirmed as definite starters on the tour.

But strong rumours are abound that Sum 41 will headline, and Snapcase and Useless ID will join them on the lower part of the bill.

Of course these three are only rumours at the moment but we will let you know who is officially playing as soon as we know.

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.
