Imitation is the highest form of flattery…

Submitted: Taken from The Ataris website: “Hey, This is Kris Roe. I have been informed that someone again is impersonating me on the site “My Space”. For the record. THIS IS NOT ME! I do not talk on this site or any other site like it. Please report this person to their admin and ask for this person to be removed, if they ask for proof that it is not me tell them to check the main page of our website and this message will be here. Playing small jokes on friends and so forth I feel is allright but impersonating someone’s idenity is just legally wrong. I will also be contacting “My Space”myself and asking for this person to be removed. Just know that in the future I do not participate in any of these sites. Sincerely, KRis Roe / The Ataris.”

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.
