Fletcher play Leeds Fest – kinda…

Fletcher will play live at the Leeds Festival in August… although not on any of the three scheduled days. Instead the Kingston foursome will rock out as only they know how on the Thursday evening, before the festival begins.

Olly explained the situation: “As far as I know, we are playing at Leeds festival on the Thursday night. This is for the film Dog Town & Z-Boys. We did it at the Metro cinema – it was very weird! They showed the new Flip skate video, and we played along with with it. Weird but cool!”

So if you are going to Leeds, get there early and check out the guys in action.

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.
