New staff member added

After ‘advertising’ for a new reviewer we were inundated with offers – so we’ve decided to add three new staff members. We’re still debating two of them but our first new reviewer is Nicole Goldkamp. The catch with Nicole is that she is American – from St Louis, MO – and so will give us a fresh slant and view. Nicole will be reviewing everything from US mainstream stuff to UK band demos and hopefully this will spread the word of some of the UK bands ‘across the pond’. So yeah, give a warm welcome to Nicole. The two other reviewers are both British before anyone moans and will be announced soon.

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.
