Dunno about Rancid, I think it’s good

Submitted by Edd: “We finally got issue 5 of Rancid News back from the printers. 92 A4 pages, colour covers, only £1. It’s the ‘all-girl issue’, with interviews from F-Minus, The Mingers, Hanin Elias (ex-atari teenage riot), Pretty Girls Make Graves, Horrorpops, The Gossip, Melt Banana, Alison Wolfe of Bratmobile, tsunami bomb, wage of sin, and walls of jericho, plus there’s a whole load of articles, reviews and columns. Order it by mailordering us at the RN address or through paypal. Or pick it up from record stores in about a weeks time.”

Paul’s note – There’s a reason why you lot voted this as the best paper zine last year…pick up a copy, the newest issue is possibly their best yet.

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.
