Goldfinger gig off?

Ska punkers Goldfinger may now not be visiting the UK in May after all, as a mystery seems to be unravelling.

On Friday we published a news story stating that the band were set to play a gig at the London Forum on May 13, and that tickets were on sale at all major internet sales outlets.

But Goldfinger‘s webmaster Brad contacted us to let us know that the band themselves were unaware of any such gig.

Infact they were completely bemused at the news, stating that they weren’t due to come over to the UK until later in the year.

Despite this, tickets are still being sold for the phantom gig and at time of writing, the venue could not be contacted for comment.

We will continue to keep you in touch with developments, but would advise fans to beware before they go buying tickets for the gig which may, or may not, happen.

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.
