Jerry-Built update!

Just as I typed the other news item, Sami and Andy from Jerry-Built phoned me to let me know that the release date of their mini-album ‘Upstarts’ has been delayed due to a “fuck up at the printers.” The record will now be released on Firefly Recordings at the end of October. However, a small number of copies will be on sale at their gig tomorrow night, so get your arses down there to get one sharpish. It’s being hailed as one of the most vital UK records of the year, and believe the hype kids. Oh, and go catch them on tour with Garrison/Kids Near Water, Fletcher/Route 215 or The Lawrence Arms at a venue near you…

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.
